Hawaii has long been a top destination for cruisers, and it's easy to see why. Here are our top seven picks for Hawaii shore experiences.

1. Snorkel reefs and underwater volcanoes. Hawaii boast some of the worlds most fascinating sea life. Snorkeling reefs with an array of colorful tropical fish, swimming with sea turtles at Turtle Canyon and Turtle Town, and swimming in the sheltered volcanic caldera of Molokini Crater are all memories to last a lifetime.

2. Zipline over a waterfall. Experience spectacular ocean and mountain views as you cruise through the rainforest canopy, zooming across the face of a 250-foot waterfall.

3. Hikes bikes and sights. Hawaii's climate and natural beauty has made it known as a paradise on earth. A variety of tours--on foot, on two wheels, or in a jeep or van--provide experienced guides to lead you to incredible vistas of mountains, streams and waterfalls and to visit pineapple and coffee plantations.

4. Surfing Lessons. What could be more Hawaiian than learning how to surf? Small group and one-on-one instruction is available that will have you up and riding waves in no time.

5. Pearl Harbor tour. Visit the legendary USS Arizona Memorial, one of the USA's most poignant national monuments, and learn more about this infamous battle from National Park Rangers and first-hand footage of the attack.

6. Whale watching. From December through April more than ten thousand humpback whales migrate to Hawaii to mate, calve and nurse their young. Enjoy a cruise on a small boat as you watch these incredible creatures--some more than 50 feet long--breach, tail slap, and fluke-up dive.

7. Volcanoes! The Hawaiian islands were born from lava thrusting up through the sea, and that process still goes on today. Visit Volcanoes National Park to see the lava flows that continue to build the Big Island from Mauna Loa and Kilauea, two of the world's most active volcanoes. Or visit the sleeping giant Haleakala, looming 10,000 feet above Maui. You see incredible sunrises and sunsets, and even ride down the mountain on a bicycle.
