Hawaii sits in the easterly trade winds that sweep down from the US West Coast. These winds blow 15-20 knots almost continuously. Very strong winds between the islands.

Winter

Strong winds and cold.

Spring

Good time.

Summer

Chance of hurricane if crossing directly to/from US West Coast.

Fall

Still hurricanes, otherwise nice.
 

Hurricanes
Hawaii rarely gets hit by hurricanes. Normally the Mexican ones die out in the cool water, east of Hawaii.
