Default Re: What ship to Hawaii?

We live 20 minutes from San Pedro, so do not stay in a hotel. San Pedro itself is not much, but if you will have a car I could recommend seeing the following:

Cabrillo Marine Aquarium: http://www.cabrilloaq.org

Aquarium of the Pacific (Long Beach): http://www.aquariumofpacific.org

Seaport Village (shops and restaurants): http://www.spvillage.com/

Tour the Queen Mary in Long Beach: http://www.queenmary.com/

Los Angeles Maritime Museum: http://www.lamaritimemuseum.org/

You can easily see the Maritime Museum and go to Seaport Village in a half day.

You can also drive around the Palos Verdes peninsula and get out and watch the surfers there. You can even take a hike here if you want. Here is a hiking map: http://www.pvplc.org/ . If you do this, I could recommend eating at Admiral Risty's, esp. if it is a clear day when you can see Catalina Island from here: http://www.admiral-risty.com/Main.html

Lots of information here:
