Day 1


Welcome to Hawaii! On arrival on Moloka’i you’ll be transferred to your ship’s hospitality area. Later, the Captain and crew greet you with smiles and champagne as you board your vessel. This evening, settle in and enjoy dinner aboard the yacht, before a presentation about your week ahead. (D)

Day 2


A warm Aloha spirit gives you a sense of Hawaii from long ago. No traffic lights, no high-rises, just a welcome slower pace. “Talk story” with locals and experience their land and traditions as few visitors ever do. You’ll hear legends and lore, and then enjoy cultural lessons in taro patches and poi making, or hike to a towering waterfall in Halawa’s cathedral valley, one of the island’s most historic places. At the Moloka’i Museum, discover the history of this ancient homeland as you enjoy an evening pa’ina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian jam session. (B)(L)(D)

Day 3


Gear up for a day of play on the “Private Island.” Thousand-foot sea cliffs line the shore and ancient volcanic plugs sit both above and below the water’s surface as host to a wide diversity of marine life. Suit your fancy and the weather - snorkel, paddleboard, or kayak. Take a stroll to visit ancient Hawaiian historic sites and learn about the islands' plantation days and unique history. (B)(L)(D)

Day 4


Today we may snorkel among coral gardens teeming with underwater life and a known sea turtle habitat. The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary located between Lana’i, Molokai, and Maui provides front-row seats as you cruise through these productive breeding grounds searching for dolphins, whales, and other marine life. Look above and below the surface. Then stretch your legs in Lahaina for an afternoon amble through this historic town or take a leisurely beach stroll. (B)(L)(D)

Day 5

Captain’s Choice Exploration

Leave it to your captain and crew to seek out and unveil the best opportunities the islands hold in store today. Dramatic volcanic backdrops, marine life sightings, and chances for snorkelling, kayaking, and paddle boarding are all possible! (B)(L)(D)

Day 6

Kona Coast

Fringed by coconut palms, Kealakekua (more commonly known as Captain Cook Bay, the fateful location of his unlucky demise) offers a morning filled with corals, sponges, and tropical fishes all set to the tune of the rich history of the Hawaiian Dynasty of Kings. From the tiniest fish to the widest stretch of coral, it’s all spectacular. Depending on weather and your mood, spend the day in the water or let us do the work, and explore the rugged coastline on a skiff ride. (B)(L)(D)

Day 7

Puu Waawaa State Wildlife Sanctuary

Choose your own adventure - you have two options this morning! Active adventure guests are off to Puu Waawaa State Wildlife Sanctuary where you and a local naturalist climb the trails above the Kona coast. Head up Hualalai Volcano, then set out on a long hike up the cool and misty slopes, complete with natural history interpretation. Hike through dryland native forest and past lava tubes, and peer into a pit crater from its edge (if you’re up for it, you can even go inside a lava tube). A shorter option boasts views of craters, fissures, and lava tubes.

More relaxed guests visit with a ranger (and become a Hawaii Junior Ranger if you choose), hike the trail to petroglyphs, or check out the Kaloko fishpond and remnants of the Aiopio fish trap. Bird watch or relax on the white coral sand beach. You may spot a green sea turtle. (B)(L)(D)

Day 8


As you dock at the Kailua - Kona Pier, you’ll be transferred to Kona Airport for your onward journey. (B)
