Put Hawaii on the agenda for your Club in 2018! Price on application.

Island of Oahu – “The Gathering Place”

Sometimes called “The Gathering Place,” Oahu certainly lives up to its name. The third largest Hawaiian island is home to the majority of Hawaii’s diverse population, a fusion of east and west cultures rooted in the values and traditions of the Native Hawaiian people. It’s this fundamental contrast between the ancient and the modern that makes discovering Oahu so enjoyable. The clear blue waters of Kailua Beach meet the metropolitan cityscapes of Honolulu. The historic architecture of Iolani Palace meets the timeless memorials of Pearl Harbor. The big city of Waikiki meets the small town of Haleiwa on the North Shore. There is variety at every turn on Oahu!

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch & dinner own cost)

Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona & Honolulu City Tour (5 hrs)
The legacy of Pearl Harbor lives on, with Hawaii playing a critical role during the turn of events that reshaped world history. On this popular narrated tour of Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial and other historic Honolulu landmarks, we will explore, first hand, what happened on Dec. 7, 1941 and how it greatly impacted the outcome of World War II. The excursion begins at Pearl Harbor to relive the events that unfolded on that fateful Sunday morning in 1941, when U.S. forces came under attack by Japan, catapulting the United States into World War II. A visit by boat to the USS Arizona Memorial then offers a real-time setting for reflecting on the extensive battle that took place, leading to the loss of life of 1,177 of the ship’s crewmen.

Day 3 – Oahu Grand Circle Island Tour

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch own cost/Dinner Cruise)

Let us show you the wonders and beauty that makes Oahu the “Heart of Hawaii”. This full day tour is the perfect way to experience Oahu’s most scenic sights, unique culture and rich history – from Diamond Head Crater to the Kahala residential area to see some of the most prestigious homes. The point lookout at Hanauma Bay (closed on Tuesday), Halona Blowhole Lookout, the famous beach of boogy boarding, Sandy Beach, through the Windward side and landscape that includes lush mountains and sparkling turquoise waters. Sunset and Waimea Beach are highlights before a dinner cruise on smooth Hawaiian waters with a performance by hula dancers and Hawaiian music.

Day 4 – KAUAI – Hawaii’s “Island of Discovery”

(Breakfast and Dinner in the hotel/Lunch own cost)

Morning airport transfer and flight to Kauai – Hawaii’s fourth largest island, sometimes called the “Garden Isle”. The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs, aged by time and the elements. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls. Some parts of Kauai are only accessible by sea or air, revealing views beyond your imagination.

Day 5 – Kauai Tour

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch & dinner own cost)

Waimea Canyon and Wailua River Boot
Referred to as “The Grand Canyon of the Pacific” over 10 miles long and over 3,000 feet deep and a mile wide, the canyon was formed by erosion and the collapse of the volcano that formed the island of Kauai. Next is the biggest little town of Hanapepe Town, Poipu, home of the Spouting Horn, a natural wonder of water rushes in under the lava shelf that bursts through a small hole in the surf. Conclude with a scenic tour on the Wailua River on a long flat-bottom boat.

Day 6 – HAWAII, “The Big Island”

(Breakfast & Dinner in the hotel/Lunch own cost)

Today we are flying down to Hawaii Island or the “Big Island” as it’s known! From the molten magma flowing from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to the snow-capped heights of Maunakea; from the green rainforests of the Hamakua Coast to the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach; Hawaii Island is unrivalled.

To avoid confusion with the name of the entire state, the Island of Hawaii is often called the “Big Island,” and what an appropriate name it is. Nearly twice as big as all of the other Hawaiian Islands combined, its sheer size can be inspiring.

Day 7 – HAWAII, “The Big Island”

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch and Dinner own cost)

Grand Circle Island Tour
The tour will bring the wonders and excitement of the Hawaii’s Big Island to life. We have planned a scenic 260-mile tour that circumnavigates the largest Hawaiian Island. It will take us along the Kona coast to view Kealakekua Bay and visit a Kona coffee plantation. We will see the famed black sand beaches. Afterwards there will be an extensive exploration of the incredible Volcanoes National Park which includes Kilauea Iki crater, steam bluffs, fern tree jungle and Thurston Lava Tube. We will see the stark, volcanic landscape of the Park from the observatory and browse Jagger Museum. Next is Hilo and the Banyan Drive lined with huge banyan trees, many of which were originally planted by such famous visitors as Amelia Earhart, King George V, Babe Ruth and President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the Rainbow Falls. At Rainbow Falls, the Wailuku River rushes into a large pool below. The gorge is blanketed by lush, dense tropical foliage and the turquoise coloured pool is bordered by beautiful wild ginger. Rainbow Falls derives its name from the fact that, on misty mornings, one can see beautiful rainbows spanning the waterfall. We will also visit an orchid and anthurium nursery and drive past many cascading waterfalls on the Hamakua Coast.   

Day 8 – Voyagers of the Pacific

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch own cost/theme dinner)

The Voyagers of the Pacific luau
A free day before this evening’s spectacular, award-winning Polynesian show presented by Tihati Productions – “The Voyagers of the Pacific” luau. After the lighting of the torches and the beat of the native island drums there is the unearthing of the pua’a (pig) from the Imu (Hawaiian underground oven) as they prepare an Hawaiian style buffet. This will be a night to remember.

Day 9 – Back to Honolulu

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch own cost/Dinner Cruise)

Group Departure transfer via coach. Inter-island flight from Kona to Honolulu.

Day 10 – Final Day

(Breakfast in the hotel/Lunch own cost)
