Yes it is very possible. I don't know much about boat travel. However the 2 major inter-island airlines will get you to whichever island you'd like. The last I checked(couple of weeks ago) the airfare was mostly 38 dollars one way....so 76 round trip, per person. Good price.
You can look at :
You can find price by putting in the info such as from Oahu to wherever you want to go. Give a date close to what you think. It is pretty easy to navigate these websites.
You will also be able to see their time schedules.
Also check out pacificwings.com. The pacific wings express flights are $33 USD each way and the times might work for you. We booked OGG(Maui) to Molokai for $147USD return for two people. Flight times were good too, leaving us the whole day on Molokai.
Yes it is possible to do a 1 day trip to another island.
You can book via the airline websites and its alright prices.
me and my partner went to the big island, and we did the volcano tour. Wasnt that spectacular maybe because there wasn't much lava but memorable to say the least, its a must at least once!
and taxi'd to nearest shopping center and back to Oahu in the afternoon.
So its doable!
Thank you all very much for this information. It is most helpful.
A lovey daytrip is Oahu to Kauai to take a helicopter tour, then drive around a bit before you return. Three airlines have commuter flights leaving just about every 30 minutes. These are like 'busses'!
If you don't choose Kauai, I'd stick to Maui. Big Island is huge and has so much more to see than just the volcano (which doesn't excite me -- poking around cinder cones and lava).

I really appreciate everybody who has taken time to respond. Thank you.
do you have to book ahead, or can you just book when you get there? I havent planned every day out, so figured after a few days there we could pick a day? I mean it would be 1 or 2 days in advance, but would be once we get there? Can you still get the cheap $33-$47 interisland flights?
We are planning a trip to Maui, June 2008, for one week at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas. Would also like to visit Honolulu for a couple of days. If we book Saturday to Saturday, we could fly to Honolulu early Thursday and fly home on Saturday from Honolulu. We could rent our unit for two days for the cost of a hotel or possibly swap with another timeshare owner. Any thoughts?
