Itinerary / more information
Day 1 - Immerse yourself in the Aloha Spirit of Hawaii, as you don a flower lei to herald your arrival in Honolulu. This evening, we join our Travel Director and fellow travellers at a Welcome Reception to kick-start our epic Hawaii holiday.
Day 2 - Admire the views from Hanauma Bay, then follow the scenic windward coast of Oahu before heading to Sunset Beach on Oahu's North Shore, famous amongst surfers for its huge waves. Then cross the island to return to Waikiki, where the rest of the day is yours.
Day 3 - Delve into the heritage of the real Hawaii, experiencing first-hand the history, culture and hospitality of the warm Polynesian people. Explore on your own or enjoy one of the many optional activities suggested by your Travel Director. Tonight, it's a Mai Tai, ocean breezes and tropical flavours all round as you join your travel companions for a dinner featuring local fare.
Day 4 - This morning, we pay homage to the thousands of brave soldiers who lost their lives in the surprise military strike at Pearl Harbor. We will visit Pearl Harbor National Monument and the USS Arizona Memorial, followed by a drive through the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, located in Punchbowl Crater. We return to downtown Honolulu to connect with the spiritual epicentre of Hawaii and the former home of Hawaii's last-reigning monarchs. See the Iolani Palace, King Kamehameha I Statue and the State Capitol Building, before spending the rest of the day at leisure.
Day 5 - Find your happy place as we fly to the Big Island, beginning our exploration in the lively seaside village of Kailua-Kona. Savour the rich aroma of Kona coffee during a visit to a local plantation with a Local Specialist. Then, check-in to your oceanside resort where you'll meet another Local Specialist at the hotel's Manta Ray Learning Center to learn about these graceful sea creatures. This evening, enjoy island-inspired cuisine and uninterrupted ocean views at Rays on the Bay.
Day 6 - Let the soothing sounds of the ocean set the tone for a leisurely exploration on your terms. Be as lazy as you like today.
Day 7 - Witness the force of Mother Nature as you journey to Punalu'u Beach Park, famous for its black sand and Hawaiian green sea turtles which swim off the coast on the black sand to sun. Then, we visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, stopping en route at the southernmost baker in the United States. We leave the Big island behind and fly to Maui where we'll check in to our beachfront resort on Kaanapali Beach.
Day 8 - Enjoy an extraordinary encounter with Hawaii's marine life during a visit to the Maui Ocean Center, where the centre's passionate conservation naturalists will reveal the secrets of this underwater wonderland. Journey into the countryside to 'Make a Difference' at a local farm and learn about the sustainable agriculture of the area and 'Connect with Locals' for a gourmet lunch of Hawaiian specialties.
Day 9 - Bask in the natural beauty of paradise, charting your own course through Maui's soul-stirring landscapes. This evening, lose yourself in the moment as your embrace the lively tradition of the Hawaiian Luau and enjoy a dinner featuring local flavours and tropical cocktails.
Day 10 - A leisurely morning on the Valley Isle sees us catch our flight to Kauai where we'll spend the next three nights admiring extraordinary feats of nature.
Day 11 - Drive through the island's famous Tunnel of Trees and continue to Waimea Canyon State Park, one of the Hawaiian Islands most awe-inspiring sites. Dubbed the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific" you will drive all the way up the canyon. The result of thousands of years of erosion, the canyon walls offer a canvas of brilliant shades of red, brown, green, blue, gray and purple, with shadows and light producing a never-ending show.
Day 12 - Kauai's natural treasures are yours to explore during this full day at leisure. Take to the skies on a helicopter flip over the Na Pali Coast and Manawaiopuna Falls, or channel your mana in picturesque surrounds. On your final night on Kauai, join your travel companions for a Farewell Dinner.
