Why a Tsunami at Hawaii?
We see a huge Tusnami in Hawaii as Godzilla approches,
As we are all aware, it takes huge amounts of energy to create a tsunami so how did Godzilla manage to create a tsunami that big?

Assuming we take the film's novelisation as an explanation, it would seem that when Godzilla arrived in Hawaii, he went for a bit of a splish-splash near the beach. The "tsunami" was evidently the result of him kicking up spray.
Caught up in their celebratory meal, the couple completely failed to notice as, less than a mile away, a huge reptilian beast rose up from the bay to tower over Waikiki. Torrents of cascading seawater veiled the monster’s form so that only the titanic proportions of the leviathan were revealed. Standing erect on two stout legs, the monster was nearly four hundred feet tall and solidly built, with a broad chest and brawny forearms. A pair of enormous jaws, resembling those of some prehistoric saurian, opened wide, but the creature’s roar was drowned out by the urgent wail of a tsunami warning.
By comparison, when he arrived in San Francisco he came out of the water relatively sedately (having been slowed up by the Golden Gate Bridge) and then stepped straight out onto land.
Godzilla rose from the bay and stepped onto the land. His thunderous tread shook the earth as he stomped through industrial shipyards and piers. Office buildings and warehouses were reduced to splinters beneath him. A cable car was crushed beneath a great, clawed foot. His tail whipped behind him, toppling entire buildings.
And yes, I'm aware that this makes no sense. Don't shoot the messenger.
