Ask the Big Kahuna "Answering the most common visitor questions"
During the Daylight Saving Time months (second Sunday in March through the first Sunday in November) California is 3 hours ahead of us. During Standard Time months (November through March) California is 2 hours ahead of us. Thus, during Daylight Saving Time, when it's 8:00 a.m. here, it's 11:00 a.m. in California.
Hawaii does not change time during the year. Our southern latitude would give us little advantage (more daylight) if we did. Hawaii's gorgeous sunrises and sunsets do not vary much in time throughout the year. In June, the sun sets around 7p.m.; in January, itís around 6 p.m. Not having to deal with Daylight Saving Time makes life simpler--something we all enjoy here.
And in case you were wondering, in November if it's 8:00 a.m. here in Hawaii, it's 10:00 a.m. in Los Angeles, 11:00 a.m. in Denver, 12:00 noon in Houston, 1:00 p.m. in New York, and 6:00 p.m. in London! In May those destination times would correspond to 7:00 a.m. Hawaii time. For more about Time Zones, see Time Zones.
Have a great visit and I'll bet that when you're here you won't spend much time checking the time.
