The Experience

Today you’ll arrive at the beautiful island of Oahu. Here you can surf the North Shores waves, hike atop knife-edged pali (cliffs), dive into Hanauma Bay’s outdoor fishbowl, go windsurfing or kayak to uninhabited islands off Kailua – and still be back in Waikiki for sunset drinks. Your Hawaiian adventure will start from here! Upon arrival, you’ll be welcomed by your travel ambassador who will assist with your transfer. You’ll have the rest of the day to relax and unwind. Head into the main shopping district, Waikiki, if you’re looking for nightlife or evening entertainment.

Overnight at The Kahala Hotel and Resort.

This morning, your guide will pick you up at the Kahala Resort for a full day tour of Oahu. First, head to the North Shore. The waves attract the best surfers in the world, especially during the winter surfing competitions. Here your guide will bring you to a surfing or stand up paddle board lesson (one lesson per person included).
Head to Haleiwa Town after your lesson, where you can shop, have a local lunch, and cool off with rainbow flavored shaved ice. In the afternoon begin your trip back towards Honolulu where you have the late afternoon and evening at your leisure.

During your tour, your guide will discuss the events leading up to the war, the attack itself, and significant battles.

After the tour, transfer to the airport to catch your flight to the Big Island. The Big Island is the size of all the other Hawaiian islands combined. The rest of the day is at your leisure to unwind.

After the exhilirating hellicopter ride, you’ll meet the expert driver-guide and embark on a journey through the exotic landscape of Kaʻū. Here, you’ll explore Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, historic farming plantations, and the famous black sand beach of Punaluʻu. Highlights of your private tour include the Jaggar Museum, Nāhuku (Thurston Lava Tube), and Halema‘uma‘u Crater. You’ll be immersed in stories of Hawaiian legends and mythology; primarily on Pele, Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightning, wind and volcanoes. Enjoy lunch perched on the edge of the Kilauea Crater at the Volcano House.

After the tour, your driver will bring you back to the island where your resort is located. The remainder of the evening is yours to relax and unwind. Overnight at The Fairmont Orchid. 

The morning is at your leisure to relax at the hotel or explore the island. In the evening, board your catamaran and set sail in time to view the beautiful Kona sunset. Your boat will offer ample seating, lighting, and bathrooms. The Kona Coast offers the best opportunity to encounter the amazing manta rays. You’ll need to wear a swimsuit, and a wetsuit top will be provided. At night, spotlights are used to attract mantas that feed off the plankton illuminated by the light. As intimidating as they look, they’re friendly and do not have stingers. After an hour swim with these beautiful creatures, you’ll return to the Kailua pier.

Once you return to the hotel, the afternoon is at your leisure. This evening, your driver will bring you to the West Side of Maui for an authentic Hawaiian luau. A luau is a traditional Hawaiian party accompanied by vibrant entertainment and traditional food such as poi, kalua pig, poke, lomi salmon, opihi, haupia, and beer. Of course, the luau wouldn’t be complete without traditional Hawaiian music and hula!

When you arrive for the luau, you’ll be greeted with a fresh flower lei and shown to your private table. Dinner will be a 4-course meal inspired by the culture and traditions of Polynesia. Each course represents a modern twist on the various traditional island cuisines. For many visitors, the highlight of a Maui luau is the amazing Samoan fire knife dance.
