    The temperature in Oahu during March typically hovers around 76 degrees. The island receives more rain in the winter months, but hurricanes are not a concern. Overall, winter in Oahu is a popular time of year to visit due to its beautiful weather conditions. Box jellyfish, which are found in Hawaii, tend to populate the waters around the island for about 9 to 10 days following a full moon. Sharks are present in all ocean waters, so the best policy is to always approach the ocean as a wilderness area. Swimming with a lifeguard present can minimize potential encounters with wildlife. Do not hesitate to ask lifeguards about the present conditions of the water. March is a time of year you might see humpback whales, blue whales, and pygmy whales. Additionally, you are likely to spot dolphins, manta rays, and monk seals. Winter months are a migratory season in the waters around Hawaii. There is much to see. I hope this helps in your travel planning. Have a wonderful trip!

    HI Kathy, Summertime, when families descend on Hawai‘i, constitutes high season. So does wintertime (from mid-December through March), when a blanket of brrrr covers most of the mainland. Holiday periods like Thanksgiving and Easter also draw throngs. Be careful about coming in late April: There are three simultaneous holidays in Japan at that time, which means the Japanese are traveling in greater numbers than usual. In general, the north and eastward facing coasts tend to get more rain. But even when it's raining on the north or eastern shore, it's often not on the south or westerly shores. And rain showers don't tend to last that long, like they do on the mainland.

    Take a look at the Kahala Hotel & Resort, which has a well-regarded kid's club plus sitter services. Located a little away from the hubbub on Waikiki, but you're just a short cab ride from the Waikiki nightlife. The resort also offers a complimentary shopping shuttle to Ala Moana Shopping Center, Waikiki, and Kahala Mall during the day. You're also close to other attractions like Diamond Head and Hanauma Bay Beach Park (nice beach, good snorkeling). Here's some more info on the resort: http://vacation.away.com/hotels/travel-ld-cid3863-honolulu-hotelid15611-the-kahala-hotel-&-resort-hotel.html
