Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 Arrive Honolulu, Oahu – Waikiki (4 Nights)
Welcome to Hawaii. In the traditional Aloha spirit, you'll be greeted at the airport with a flower lei. Explore your hotel in the heart of Waikiki Beach and spend the rest of the afternoon as you like: dive into the warm gentle waves of the Pacific, explore the shopping opportunities in Waikiki, or relax with a tropical drink poolside. At 6 p.m., gather for a Hawaiian-style Welcome Reception.(Welcome Reception)

Day 2 Oahu Sightseeing and Free Time
Traverse the island of Oahu, passing through colourful villages, rainforests and pineapple plantations. See panoramic views of the deep blue waters from rugged cliffs like those at Pali Lookout, site of the historic Battle of Nuuanu in 1795 that united the island of Oahu under King Kamehameha I's rule. Marvel at idyllic golden beaches and look out on the world-famous surf along the North Shore, known for its huge waves during the winter. Back in Waikiki, your evening is free; enjoy a sunset swim in the gentle waves or perhaps explore the shopping and dining opportunities in Waikiki.(Full Breakfast)

Visit a local coffee plantation where a Local Specialist gives you a tour and acquaints you with one of the Big Island's most famous crops. Later, check in to your oceanfront resort and perhaps get a glimpse of the most famous guests on the property: the manta rays.

Speaking of rays, enjoy rich island flavours at Rays on the Bay with views of these resident sea creatures.(Full Breakfast, Dinner)

Once inside the park, learn about the fiery geology of the islands and walk through a real lava tube followed by a visit to an interpretive museum.
