Oh, the sites are beautiful in luxurious Kauaʻi, and today you can shop, relax or even try that Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride yourself. Kauaʻi has remarkable hiking trails. Each island has indigenous flora and wildlife not found anywhere else in the world. Some of the things you see here won’t be found anywhere else. Let the drivers know what you’re interested in and sit back while they drive you to wherever you want to go. Just ask. We fly to Maui tomorrow morning.

Day 9: Maui Ocean Center.
Maui Ocean Center, also known as The Aquarium of Hawaiʻi, allows guests to conveniently explore Hawaii’s underwater world without ever getting wet. Named one of the Top 25 Best Aquariums in the U.S. by TripAdvisor, the Aquarium features a variety of Hawaii’s sharks, turtles, stingrays and thousands of vibrant tropical fish. The Aquarium is home to one of the world’s most extensive collection of live Pacific corals, faithfully replicating thriving marine ecosystems in every exhibit. A mix of over 60 indoor-outdoor exhibits allows guests to discover more of Hawaii’s marine life in a single day than would be possible in an entire lifetime of exploration. Venture through the 750,000-gallon Open Ocean Exhibit featuring a 54ft walk-through tunnel, observe Hawaiian green sea turtles from two views, and see some of the oceans most elusive creatures up close.
Day 10: Fly to Big Island
Today is another one of a kind scenic flight to the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. After you arrive at Kona airport, we will board the SUV and travel to the hotel. Our first adventure begins in Mahukona. Learn how a simple deckhand from Texas became a millionaire by selling longhorn cattle from Hawaiʻi! The next stop is a sacred heiau (hay-ow) called Pu’ukohola overlooking a beach and a very special bay! Finally, back to Kailua Kona for a one of a kind submarine ride, called the Kona Undersea Adventure. During this 45-minute ride, you will get to explore the 25-acre natural coral reef and all of the marine life in it! With depths of 100 feet, you can enjoy the views from air conditioning and true comfort. After the submarine ride, we have a dinner cruise waiting for you! Enjoy this treat as we set sail for a historical sunset dinner cruise. This is a 3-hour guided tour where you can journey back in time to when powerful kings ruled the rugged lands of the Hawaiian Islands. We will retire to the hotel afterward.
Day 11: Big Island South Point
Today you will journey from the hotel to Puʻuhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park, otherwise known as the City of Refuge. In old Hawai’i, if you had broken the law, the penalty was death. Perhaps you had entered an area that was reserved for only the chiefs or had eaten forbidden foods. Laws, or kapu, governed every aspect of Hawaiian society. The penalty for breaking these laws was certain death. Your only option for survival is to elude your pursuers and reach the nearest pu’uhonua, or place of refuge. Today, you may visit Pu’uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park, and still feel the spirit of peace and forgiveness that continues to surround and bless this special place. Ka Lae (Hawaiian: the point), also known as South Point, is the southernmost point of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi and of the 50 United States. The Ka Lae area is registered as a National Historic Landmark District under the name South Point Complex. We will also show you a tree planted by Mark Twain.
Day 12: Volcano National Park
Today, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park displays the results of at least 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution in the Hawaiian Islands. Emperor Seamount chain-processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems, and a distinct human culture. Created to preserve the natural setting of Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, the park is also a refuge for the island’s native plants and animals and a link to its human past. We will spend the day going on hiking trails, driving the Chain of Craters Road, and learning more about the history of the islands.
Day 13: Big Island Hilo, Hawaiʻi
Hilo is a special place because this is where most of our Ohana is. Hilo is the rainiest city in the United States! Even though it rains nearly every day, it has beautiful sunny days, too. Unlike Kona or Honolulu, Hilo’s ecosystem is a rainforest. The hills and surrounding areas are filled with coconut trees and flowers, and even bamboo. On our excursion in Hilo, we will go to the Pacific Tsunami Museum. We will drive to the airport and take a helicopter tour over the island and the active volcano. From here, we will take about an hour ride to the district of Puna and visit the new lava flow! Then we return to the hotel. Hawaiʻi has 4 out of 5 of the major climate zones. By this time, you have seen every one of them!
Day 14: Depart
Mahalo He He kaumaha lā mākou pono olelo ALOHA (This is a sad day we must say ALOHA) return to Oahu and depart back to Mainland.
