Trying to decide between this or Paradise Cove (or maybe neither would allow for enough time) for our last night before our 11:30pm departure from Hawaii.
Thought Chief's Luau might be nice (we're leaving on a Sunday night) since we'll have already spent the rest of our stay on the West Oahu, and since we have to be out of our accomodations by 11:00am, we could spend the afternoon touring other parts of the island and finish at Sea Life Park for the Chief's Luau.
I'd like to be back at the car rental drop off by 9:45pm - what I'm trying to figure out is if there is enough time to drive to the airport after the luau, OR if it is possible to leave a bit early to beat the rush (maybe there is no rush to get out, but I'm worried it could be a gridlock parking lot situation and may take longer than expected).
It looks like a 40-45 minute drive depending on the route (not sure if it's necessary to avoid H1 around 9pm on a Sunday, but 72 to H3 seems to be an alternate route if that might be better?)
Hopefully it works out so that we can end our trip doing something fun like this, but maybe it's not worth taking the risk of cutting our airport arrival close. I feel like if we could leave a bit early (8:30/8:45) it would be fine time wise, but not sure if that's frowned upon or not.
