1Embark in Moloka'i
Step on to the Safari Explorer and smile as you are greeted with champagne! The crew of this 36-guest vessel will delight you from the start with their friendliness, knowledge, and adventurous spirit. You can relax onboard, and put your wallet away, this vacation is all-inclusive (all excursions, exploring equipment and alcohol) and is the ONLY all-inclusive vacation in Hawaii.
The Halawa Valley is an ancient area of the island. You'll meet with Uncle Pilipo who's family have lived in Molokai for 13 generations. He is dedicated to preserving the Hawaiian culture of his people and educating guests through songs, dance, and story telling. You'll have your choice of hiking to gorgeous waterfalls in the Halawa's cathedral valley, or to stay and have a cultural lesson that includes poi making. Later in the evening you'll enjoy a delicious home-style Pa'ina (feast) with the family and a fun Hawaiian jam session!
Visiting Lana'i is like stepping in a time machine, there are no malls, no traffic lights, just a private island feel. Hike to Sweetheart Rock (an 80 foot sea stack,) kayak on a remote beach, and learn about the legend of Princess Puu Pehe. In the evening the expedition guides will have a fascinating presentation about Hawaiian marine life.
The beaches of Maui are considered some of the most beautiful in the world! Snorkel along the coral gardens with the playful sea turtles. This the home of a large turtle feeding station, where schools of fish feed off the plankton living on the turtles' backs!
Enjoy your front row seats cruising through The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary in search of dolphins, whales, and other marine wildlife.
5Captain's Choice Exploration
You'll be "critter cruising" today! On a small ship dedicated to adventure, a tight itinerary is not top priority. The best conditions and wildlife activity will help the captain decide where to cruise to today. Guides will be on the lookout to get you close to the whales, dolphins, turtles, and colorful fish for magical marine experiences.
Snorkel among the coral, sponges and tropical fish at the Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. On land you can hike with a park ranger at Koloko-Honokohau National Historic Park on your way to petroglyphs and fish ponds.
7Puu Waawaa State Wildlife Sanctuary
Hike up Hualalai Volcano past lava tubes and peer into a pit crater. Today you can enjoy lunch at a coffee plantation located on the mountain.
In the evening you'll dine at the farewell Captain's Dinner with a beautiful photographic slideshow with your memories from the week.
