I am arriving from Chicago at 3:30 on Dec 30th, departing about the same time the following day (3:20). I'd really like to hike both Diamond Head and Koko Crater and take a 2 hour surfing lesson, but want to make sure I'm going to have time for all of that.
I was thinking I'd arrive at my hotel by 4:30, it's the Park Shore so it's right next to Diamond Head. I'll probably be pretty tired from the long flight and time change. I figure I could head over, hike up and then come back down for an early dinner, stroll around downtown Honolulu and bed. Next morning I'll probably be up well before the sun. What's the earliest bus to Koko? Would I have time to hike it and be back in time for a 10:30 surf lesson? I am very fit. What if i took a cab?
Lastly, how long should I allow for getting back to the airport in time for my flight - ie, trying to figure out the latest time I could schedule a 2 hour surf lesson and still make my flight?
