Whale Watching


Diamond Head

Each year from November through May, humpback whales, or kohola, migrate to the warmer waters of Hawaiʻi from Alaska, spurring crowds to the water’s edge in an attempt to spot these magnificent creatures. The summit of Diamond Head offers a unique vantage point to see whales breaching. Stay tuned to the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel Blog for our round-up of the best whale watching tours on Oʻahu, coming soon.

Honolulu Turkey Trot

Thurs. Nov. 24 (Thanksgiving)

Queen Kapiʻolani Park Bandstand

If you’re in Honolulu for Thanksgiving, consider taking part in the 47th Annual Turkey Trot, which is a little different than most mainland marathons. The 10-mile training run awards runners not on their times, but how well they predict their time. Sound tricky? It is.


2022 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing


North Shore

These events aren’t in Honolulu, but we’d be remiss not to mention one of Hawaiʻi’s biggest events of the year! Venture north to Haleʻiwa to be a spectator at the Vans Triple Crown events: Hawaiian Pro at Haleʻiwa; Vans World Cup at Sunset Beach; and the Billabong Pipe Masters on the Banzai Pipeline. Read up on specific date windows on the Vans Triple Crown site and other upcoming surf contests.

81st Anniversary of the Pearl Harbor Attack

Wed. Dec. 7

Naval Station Pearl Harbor

Commemorate the anniversary of the Dec. 7, 1941 attack by visiting major Pearl Harbor sites like the USS Arizona, USS Bowfin, USS Missouri, and the Pacific Aviation Museum at Ford Island Airfield. Annual events like commemoration, outdoor concert, parade, and more are also scheduled. Here’s everything you need to plan your visit.

Honolulu Marathon

Sun. Dec. 11, 5 a.m.

Ala Moana Boulevard, Queen Street

Run 26.2 miles through paradise during the 50th annual Honolulu Marathon. There is no time limit and everyone is encouraged to finish.
