Aloha Kuhuna, We are also from Hawaii and just got back. My dow jacket is the only way I did wear when it was needed. 1 night.......You really just need to wear normal clothes and have 1 wind breaker jacket and the 1 dow jacket packed. A lot of people wearing jeans made it easy to wear either a t-shirt or a sweater depending on the temperature. We always had good weather with the windbreaker tied around our waist when we went on shore. But keep track of the weather reports and keep the suitcase unzipped just in case.
