 OCEANVIEW Rooms at all 3 Resorts! 

 

 

Day 1 – Home to Honolulu/Waikiki, HI 

Get ready for a getaway to paradise! Today we’ll fly from the cold of Minnesota to the sunny warmth of Waikiki Beach, located near Honolulu on Oahu Island! Check into our exceptional oceanfront resort for four wonderful nights. Enjoy oceanview rooms at the resort overlooking beautiful Waikiki Beach. This evening you’ll have plenty of time to explore the resort and the surrounding area, or simply sit back and take in the views of paradise! 

Hotel: Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort (OCEANVIEW) (4 Nights) 

 

Day 2 – Honolulu/Waikiki 

Tour Pearl Harbor National Memorial Park. Cruise by Navy Launch to the sunken USS Arizona. This is a moment you won’t forget as your thoughts turn to Dec. 7, 1941 and the beginning of World War II. This impressive Memorial to the 1,102 men still entombed will be a special moment of the trip. Sightseeing includes Hawaii’s State Capitol, Iolani Palace, Punchbowl, Kawaiahao Church, and Kamehameha Statue. Motor through lush rain forest to the Nu’uanu Pali Lookout for a scenic view of Honolulu and the valley below. Explore more of Waikiki on your own tonight. 

Included Meals: Breakfast 

 

Day 3 – Honolulu/Waikiki 

Today we’re in for a real treat with a visit to the Dole Pineapple Plantation for a tour, garden viewing, instructions on how to properly cut a pineapple, and possibly some pineapple treats to try! The Dole Plantation is one of the only remaining pineapple plantations in Hawaii. Originally operated as a fruit stand beginning in 1950, Dole Plantation opened to the public as Hawaii’s “Pineapple Experience” in 1989. Today, Dole Plantation is one of Oahu’s most popular visitor attractions and welcomes more than one million visitors a year. Once we leave the plantation, Oahu’s stunning North Shore is just a short drive away. This time of the year should be the best time for seeing some of the biggest and most dangerous surfing waves along the beaches. No worries; we won’t be stopping to surf, but do take a look at these epic waves! We’ll spend the rest of the afternoon and evening at another one of the island’s most popular cultural centers: the Polynesian Cultural Center, voted the #1 attraction in Hawaii by USA Today. We’ll explore 42 acres of tropical splendor featuring 6 authentic villages representing the island cultures of Hawaii, Fiji, Aotearoa (New Zealand), Samoa, Tahiti, and Tonga. Mingle with Pacific islanders as they share the majesty of their culture through music, dance, and traditional hands-on activities. Enjoy the wonderful island luau before finishing off our adventure through the power of “Ha: Breath of Life,” an action-packed evening show. Ignited by fire, song and dance featuring over 100 Polynesian performers, this story of passion will make this day a truly unforgettable experience. It will be a late evening, but remember tomorrow is a free day to do as you please! 

Included Meals: Dinner

Today is a free day to explore on your own or relax at our wonderful resort. If you’re not sure how you’d like to spend this lovely day, your tour director or the hotel staff can give you some ideas.

Day 5 – Honolulu/Waikiki to Kona 

This morning we have a very early departure for our interisland flight to the Big Island, featuring everything from volcanoes to lush valleys and expansive pastures. Once we’ve arrived, we’ll make a couple stops for candy or macadamia nuts before the highlight of our morning, Volcano National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’ll see Mauna Loa, the most massive mountain on earth, and Kilauea Crater, rising 4,090 ft. above a volcanic wonderland of steaming fire pits and fern forests. We’ll enjoy an included lunch near the park. We’ll continue on with our sightseeing ride along the eastern coast of the Big Island, with a stop or two along the way. Royal Kona Resort rests on a 12-acre volcanic outcropping, offering a dramatic oceanfront setting just steps from many restaurants, shops, and historic sites in Kailua-Kona. Take in famed Kona sunsets from your deluxe oceanview rooms!

Day 6 – Kona 

Today is all about coffee! This morning after another wonderful breakfast at our resort, we’ll take a short drive to a Kona coffee farm for a guided tour amongst the coffee plants where we’ll learn everything we ever wanted to know about the coffee beans. We’ll also take a taste or buy some to take home! Then we’ll have the opportunity to walk through the Kona Coffee Living History Farm for an educational experience immersed in coffee history. 

Included Meals: Breakfast 

 

Day 7 – Kona to Maui 

Enjoy one last breakfast on the Big Island before we fly to Maui, the “Valley Isle.” Experience the island’s lush jungle valleys, ribbons of sand, cool uplands, vast craters and historic treasures. We’ve chosen one of Maui’s most luxurious oceanfront hotels, the Sheraton Maui Resort, featuring oceanview rooms for your enjoyment! Maui is said to be the favored island and it is with that in mind, we have given you three wonderful nights in this tropical paradise with some of the finest beaches in the world! All you have to do is walk out on the courtyard and see whales spouting in the distance. This evening don’t miss the sunset over the black rocks and the famous sunset divers on the beach.

Day 8 – Maui 

After a full breakfast, we take a whale watching cruise off the sunny shores of Maui. We’ll learn why they call this season the “Running of the Whales.” The waters are full of humpback whales calving their young in the warm waters between Lanai and Maui. It is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip! Later, stroll along the beach front which takes you to all of the hotels, many that have been on “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” Stroll to Whalers Village with a variety of shopping places and many restaurants. This evening enjoy a wonderful dinner together overlooking the crashing waves on the most beautiful of all the islands! 

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner 

 

Day 9 – Maui 

Spend the day relaxing at the resort or take a day excursion on your own with some helpful suggestions from your tour director or the resort staff. This evening we are guests at an authentic luau.

As the sun sets over this spectacular setting, it will be a delightful evening we will long remember.
