What You'll Do
DAY 1: Island of O'ahu

Upon arriving in Honolulu, you will be greeted with a flower lei, and we will take you to your hotel where we have already taken care of everything. After checking into the hotel, we will head to Laʻie and today you’re in for a real treat! You will be exploring all the South Pacific Islands at the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC). The PCC boasts 42 acres that are home to a village representing every island and culture in the South Pacific. From the Kapa Haka of Maori and the Fire Knife Dancers of Samoa to the beautiful Hula of Hawaiʻi. Here you will relax and dive into the culture, music, and food. Wander through the park, surrounded by the lush tropical vegetation and enjoy hands-on, traditional activities.

Dine like royalty at an authentic Polynesian luʻau (feast of Polynesian food) and top it off with the most spectacular evening show in the islands, Ha: Breath of Life, filled with traditional song, dance, and fire knives.

DAY 2: Island of O'ahu

Today we will explore a famous part of the island’s history as we go to the Pearl Harbor sites. Visit the USS Arizona Memorial as well as the USS Utah, USS Missouri, and others from World War II. After leaving here, we are off to the National Memorial Cemetery.

To finish off the day, we will visit the Iolani Palace, a beautiful piece of architecture that was once the home of Hawaii’s last reigning monarchs. We finish the tour at the Diamond Head area, the volcanic cone which has become an iconic landmark on the islands.

DAY 3: Island of O'ahu

We will start off our day with an O’ahu island tour, where we venture out to the north shore and various sites of the island. This area is popular with surfers hunting down the perfect wave and people snorkeling on the coral reefs.

Our tour will include stops at Chinaman’s Hat, a small, basalt island just off the coast, and the Dole Pineapple plantation. 

Today you will also see more World War II sites as we venture further into the island’s history.

DAY 4: Island of Kauaʻi

Travel with your guide to the Honolulu airport. We will board a private plane and travel to Kauaʻi.  The plane will circle the island so that you can see one of Hollywood’s favorite locations for filming in a tropical paradise, Manawaiopuna Falls. We will then arrive in Kauaʻi, where we will travel to the hotel, eat dinner, and rest for the evening.

DAY 5: Island of Kauaʻi

Wake up to a delicious breakfast and head out to drive through one of Hawaiʻi’s most filmed islands.

On day 5, you will get to see the famed Manawaiopuna Falls which you may recognize from Jurassic Park. You will board a helicopter and fly around the falls, land, and are free to explore and take pictures of the area.

After this magnificent flight, you will take a tour around the island to the “Grand Canyon of Hawaiʻi” or Waimea State Park. On this excursion, you will stop in Hanapepe and visit the home and village that inspired the movie Lilo and Stitch. We will stop at one of the famous Shrimp Shacks of Hawaiʻi and enjoy a picnic lunch. On our way back to the hotel, we can stop as many times as you like for shopping or photo opportunities.

DAY 6: Island of Kauaʻi

The unique sights are endless in the luxurious island of Kauaʻi, and today you can shop, relax, or even try out the Hawaiian roller coaster ride. Kauaʻi has remarkable hiking trails, and each island has indigenous flora and wildlife not found anywhere else in the world. Let the driver know what you’re interested in and sit back while they drive you to wherever you want to go. We will offer you recommendations if you find it too difficult to choose.

DAY 7: Fly to Maui

Arrive on the island of Maui and spend the day exploring impressive waterfalls and beaches. Have you ever seen a pineapple grow? Hint: it’s not a tree! Maui Pineapple Tours offers the only tour in America of a working pineapple plantation. You can eat lunch here and then explore the plantation.

The rest of the day is free for you to spend it as you please. The SUV will be available if you want to do more sightseeing or go shopping. Our dedicated tour guides will take you pretty much anywhere you would like to go. Lunch is provided if you decide to return to the hotel, but if not, you’re responsible for your own meal.

DAY 8: Road to Hana

We have an early start at 7 am to make the most of this full-day adventure. Today you will be exploring the beautiful road to Hana. This spectacular road is peppered with waterfalls and other picturesque scenery, there’s even a checklist of must-see sights easily accessible online. A couple of the sights to keep an eye out for are Koki Beach, Twin Falls, and the Garden of Eden Arboretum. 

You will be stopping for lunch and dinner which will be served back at the hotel.

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 US 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 ocean’s 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 (Hawaiian temple) called Pu’ukohola overlooking a beach and a very special bay.

We then go back to Kailua Kona for a unique 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 excitement of 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 3-hour guided tour allows you to journey back in time to when powerful kings ruled the rugged lands of the Hawaiian islands. Afterward, we will retire to the hotel.

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 was to elude your pursuers and reach the nearest pu’uhonua, or place of refuge. Today, you can visit Pu’uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park, and still feel the spirit of peace that continues to surround this special place.

Ka Lae (the point), also known as South Point, is the southernmost place 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 before ending our adventures for the day.

DAY 12: Volcano National Park

Today, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park showcases the results of at least 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution in the Hawaiian Islands. 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.

We will spend the day weaving through 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 (family) 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, a place that serves as a memorial to all those who lost their lives in the natural disasters of 1946 and 1960.

We will then drive to the airport and take a helicopter tour over the island and the active volcano.  From here, we will continue on to the district of Puna and visit the new lava flow! Hawaiʻi has 4 out of 5 of the major climate zones, and by this point in the tour, you will have seen every one of them! We’ll then return to the hotel to recuperate after an action-packed day.

DAY 14: Departure

Mahalo He He kaumaha lā mākou pono olelo ALOHA (this is a sad day we must say ALOHA).

Today we return to Oahu and depart back to the mainland as we end our Hawaii travel adventure.
