When In Oahu, Do as the Navy SEALs Do

Tactical Shooting, SCUBA Diving and Helicopter Jumps in Paradise

By Hadley Tomicki ·

Some people think a Hawaiian vacation means sitting around the beach with a tropical drink.

Others prefer jumping out of a helicopter at 10,000-feet and blasting machine guns.

Since only one necessitates the help of a hardcore military veteran, let's focus on that.

It’s Navy SEAL Experiences from Trident Adventures, an Oahu-based company run by actual U.S. Navy SEALs that let you get down like they do for a day.

You know the SEALs as the toughest branch of the U.S. military's special forces. And if you’re anything like us, you’ve always been curious if you could hang. Even for a little bit. Now you have your chance.

The company offers several different experiences for you and your friends. You can take in the island views at terminal velocity during a tandem skydive from a helicopter at 10,000 feet. Or opt for the conceivably less intense helicopter jump that segues seamlessly into a SCUBA or snorkeling session. Or choose a tactical shooting experience and gain access to 47 military firearms and a shooting range on a private estate.

Naturally, you'd like to do all of that stuff. And if you have $15,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can. 

Simply book the "Be a Navy SEAL for a Day" package. This includes a full day of undersea diving, helicopter jumping, a driving tour and tactical shooting adventures alongside bona-fide SEALs.

Hopefully they throw in a cool codename, too.
