Day 1 Arrive in the Big Island
Welcome to Hawaii! You’ll receive a warm aloha from your Expedition Leader at the hospitality suite at the Mauna Lani Bay Resort. Following an introduction to your weeklong adventure, a private transfer takes you to the Safari Explorer awaiting dockside at Kawaihae Harbor. Enjoy a sunset cruise before dropping anchor for the evening.
Day 2 Opihihali / Honomalino Bay
The search is on this morning as you set sail for Opihihali—an area known to be favored by marine mammals. A day of ultimate relaxation, skiff tours, and kayaking is in store. Fringed by coconut palms, Honomalino Bay offers snorkeling, paddle boarding, sailing, and another chance for kayaking. The bay reveals a diversity of colorful corals, sea turtles, sponges, and tropical fishes.
Day 3 Kailua Kona
Head to Kealakekua Bay, where Captain Cook perished in 1779, for some of the island’s best snorkeling. At Kailua-Kona, rendezvous for a guided walking tour of the historic town of Kailua. Anchor at an offshore location to search for and night snorkel with Great Pacific Manta rays before setting sail this evening.
Day 4 Olowalu / West Maui
In ancient times, Olowalu was considered a place of refuge. Today, you’ll have a treat of snorkeling among black rock and coral gardens teaming with underwater life. Later you’ll be underway in an authentic handcarved voyaging canoe sailing as the early Polynesian warriors did.
Days 5-6 Moloka’i / Halawa Valley
From Kaunakakai Harbor, you’ll meet the people of Moloka’i and experience their land and traditions as few visitors ever do. Get some sand between your toes on one of Hawaii’s longest beaches. Hands-on activities await in the picture book Halawa Valley. Discover the history and culture of this ancient homeland at a local museum; learn to make lei’s at a plumeria farm; and treat your taste buds with a stop for coffee at a plantation and a visit to an organic macadamia nut farm. Spend leisure time in the charming paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town of Kaunakakai. “Talk story” with locals and enjoy an evening pa’ina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian music “jam” session.
Day 7 Lana’i
On Lana’i, you’ll find coves lined by steep rock faces, white-sand beaches, and ancient volcanic
plugs sitting both above and below the water surface. Gear up for a day of play. Water activities include snorkeling, paddle boarding, kayaking, sailing, and skiff exploration. The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary—located between Lana’i, Moloka’i, and Maui—provides front-row seats in these productive marine breeding grounds.
Day 8 Lana’i – Disembark
Gather for breakfast before the Safari Explorer docks on Lana’i, where you’ll be transferred to the Lana’i Airport or to the ferry dock for your continued journey home.
