Meet the centre's conservation naturalists who will reveal secrets of the underwater wonderland that preserves and protects such species as Pacific corals, Hawaiian green sea turtles and sharks. We leave the coast behind and journey deep into the countryside to visit a local farm and 'Make a Difference' as you learn about the sustainable agriculture on the islands. 'Connect with a Local' and toast to a traditional 'Be My Guest' lunch serving up Hawaiian specialties made with the freshest local ingredients. Spend the evening at leisure. (Breakfast)
