So Many Choices, Too Little Time!!!

This is where I bring you guys and your expertise in : ) . Oh my word!! We are going to Oahu for spring break and WOW there are SO many things I want to do. I've had my itinerary planned out for three months now, but the more I research, make reservations, and plan out routes, the more and more I want to do. Here is what is on there so far:

Tons of beaches (Bellows, Sunset, Turtle, Waimea, Ko Olina)
Snorkeling (Sharks Cove, Haunama Bay)
Shark Swim (although I'm iffying on this one as it's $200 for the both of us. I don't know where but I had gotten the idea it was $130 for both of us)
Sunset Sailboat Ride (again I'm iffy on this in changing it into a morning or afternoon sail. There would be more time to see the coast, plus apparently you can see whales. You can see them on the sunset one too, only the sun sets halfway thru.)
Coffee and macademia nut farm
Pearl Harbor
Waimea Falls & Botanical Garden
Hawaiian flea market (has special name, can't remember it right now)

Any sane person would be perfectly happy with that list, right? Maybe I'm not sane. This is the list I've come up with of things I'd like to do as well. I may even be willing to trade some stuff out, I just can't figure what!!

Hike Diamond Head
Rent a bike for a half day in Kailua
Kayak Kailua to the islands
Halona Blowhole
Tantalus Drive (we may squeeze this one in one afternoon)
Morning or afternoon whale watching sail (already mentioned that one)

What do you guys think? Anything on the second list sound like a must trade?

Wow! Well, if you're insane, than I am too! I always try to fit so much into my vacations.

If you've never snorkeled, I would definitely do that. And the sailboat ride sounds amazing, too. I personally would check out the flea market - no surprise there. :) And I think you should pick between hiking or biking, but I'm sure either would be gorgeous - plus good exercise! Maybe just choose one beach and see how you like it, rather than trying to hit a bunch. You might regret not relaxing if you fill your schedule too much. That is always my dilemma!

oh you're going to have so much fun! I did the Diamond Head hike when I was there oh gosh 8 years ago. It was pretty cool and I was going to recommend that before I saw that you listed it as a back-up. Although, I'm not sure I would give up anything on your list in favor of it...all that other stuff is really amazing.
