DAY 1 & day 2

Arrival, check-in and relax 

Upon arrival at Kona Airport, your clients will be greeted and transferred to their selected luxury accommodation. The first day on Hawaii Island is dedicated to unwinding—whether by the pool or exploring at a leisurely pace, adjusting to island time. Which, on our luxury holidays, translates as ‘taking all the time in the world’.

Private charter boat tour of Kealakekua Bay

In Hawaii, the ocean is one of the best ways to gain a real perspective of the natural beauty of our islands. Discover the natural beauty of Hawaii from the ocean aboard a private charter to Kealakekua Bay. Guided by a knowledgeable skipper and marine biologist, your clients will experience not only the safety of our warm waters but also a deep dive into Hawaii's history, geography, and natural heritage. From November to May, there's also the opportunity for whale watching as these magnificent creatures enjoy migrating through paradise, adding to the magic of their Hawaiian experience.

DAY 3
CULTURAL OPTION

Visit Kohala Coast and Moʻokini Heiau

The northern coast of Hawaii Island is another world, one where you are not only transported through dramatic lava landscapes, but also back in time. Just east of Hawi, a traditional Hawaiian town, lies Kapa’au, the birthplace of King Kamehameha—the first ruler of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The town proudly hosts the first of many statues in the state honoring him, marking the start of your historical exploration.

 

Your next step is much further back in time, visiting the temple ruins of Moʻokini Heiau and Kohala Historical Sites State Monument, dating back to 480 A.D. and is considered one of the island’s most important sacred sites. Look, but don't touch. We can arrange to have a guide meet with you during your visit if you want to delve deeper into local history.

DAY 3
Adventure OPTION

Hawaii horseback riding and ranch visit

If history isn’t going to tweak everyone’s interest on this family holiday, we offer a ranch visit where guests can enjoy horseback riding with a local paniolo, or cowboy, tradition that goes back generations in Hawaii. This adventure can be complemented by a visit to Kapaau, home to the historic birthplace of King Kamehameha, and stop just at the end of the road for a meal with epic ocean views or continue on to the nearby Pololū Valley or Keokea State Park for an ocean-side picnic.

Children can enjoy a private visit to seahorse or octopus research centers, while adults might enjoy a private tasting of Kona's famous coffee. These experiences support the Historic Hawaii Foundation.

DAY 4

Visit Volcanoes National Park
Hawaii hiking and helicopter touring

A visit to Volcanoes National Park promises a full-day expedition and one of Hawaii's most breathtaking adventures. We recommend an early start for this excursion, followed by a choice of transportation based on preference for adventure. Options include a engaging helicopter ride over Kīlauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, or a guided road trip from Kona to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Opting for a guided driver allows the whole family to relax and take in the stunning views along the park’s iconic Crater Rim Drive and Chain of Craters Road.

For hiking enthusiasts, we arrange guided treks led by experts or volcanologists to explore lava tubes and other volcanic features within the park.

 

During the day trip to Volcanoes National Park, enjoy lunch at a vanilla bean farm or a tour of a local tea plantation. The guide will also suggest off-the-beaten-path stops for exceptional views, showcasing the beauty of Hawaii.

 

Please note, we also organize helicopter and hiking tours to other volcanoes across Hawaii, including Mauna Loa, Mahukona, Mauna Kea, Hualalai, and Kohala.
