What time is it in Hawaii? This is a commonly asked question — and for the most part, this is an easy question to answer — Hawaii is in the GMT -10 time zone — but did you know there are actually two time zones in Hawaii?

The Hawaiian Islands are the most northern group of islands in Polynesia and arguably the most famous of the Polynesian islands — although some might say that the most famous is Tahiti. In addition to being the most northern islands in Polynesia, the Hawaiian Islands go as far west as the Midway Islands.

Although the most important places in Hawaii are in the GMT -10 time zones, keep reading to learn more about Hawaii.

Did You know? Hawaii Was Known as The Sandwich Islands

Did you knowThe Hawaiian Islands were once known as the Sandwich Islands.

In the 1770's, Captain Cook named the islands in honour of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich and at the time, First Lord of the Admiralty — John Montagu was a strong advocate of Captain Cook. The British influence can still be seen in the flag of Hawaii which has the Union Jack appearing in the top right corner.

Interestingly, Cook originally named Manuae Atoll as Sandwich Island but renamed it Hervey Island when he decided to give the name to the Hawaiian Islands.

At the time, John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, was well respected because South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands are also named in his honour. But notice how the word South is added before the word Sandwich to differentiate South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands from the Sandwich Islands in the north now known as Hawaii.

Hawaii Time Zones

Although Hawaii is primarily within the GMT -10 time zones, a few remote islands are in the GMT -11 time zones. Since these remote islands are essentially uninhabited, they play no significant role when it comes to understanding the time zones within Hawaii.

Daylight Saving Time

None of the Hawaiian Islands observe daylight saving time (DST).

Hawaii does not observe daylight saving time because there is ultimately no need. Geographically, Hawaii is located at approximately 21° north. At this latitude, there is not a significant enough difference between sunrise and sunset times throughout the year to warrant using daylight saving time.
