Tour Schedule:
Day 1: Fly Salt Lake City to Kaua’i
We arrive on Kaua’i Island late afternoon. With a Hawaiian lei greeting, you’ll immediately feel the tropical air and know you have arrived someplace special. Kaua’i is less developed than other islands, and well deserves its nickname “the Garden Island”. After checking into the resort, you will have free time to enjoy the resort restaurants, pools and beach. An optional trip may be taken to the Coconut Marketplace for shopping and dinner options.

Day 2: Kaua’i - North Island Tour - Sunset Picnic
This morning we will meet to review the tour itineraries and plans on Kaua’i. Morning is at your leisure. Today’s island tour includes a river cruise through Kauai’s lush interior to the popular Fern Grotto. Then on to more beautiful island sites, including the Kilauea Lighthouse, Hanalei Valley and Bay, Lumahai Beach, and the Limahuli Tropical Botanical Gardens. At sunset, we’ll be on Ha’ena Beach enjoying a picnic (included dinner).

Day 3: Kaua’i - South Island Tour - Luau
This morning is at your leisure to enjoy the resort and beach. On an afternoon island tour we will visit the famous Wailua Falls, Old Koloa Town, Poipu Beach Park, and the Spouting Horn Blow Hole. This evening we will enjoy the exciting Hyatt Regency Luau (included dinner).

Day 4: Kaua’i - Na Pali Coast and Waimea Canyon - Fly to Maui
One of the highlight activities on the Hawaiian Islands will be yours today as you take a catamaran boat tour of the beautiful and majestic Na Pali Coast of Kaua’i (included lunch). You will have the option to jump in the water and do some snorkeling. This afternoon we’ll take in some spectacular views of Waimea Canyon, “the Grand Canyon of the Pacific”, and the beautiful Kalalau Valley. An evening flight will take us to the island of Maui, where we will check into a resort on Ka’anapali Beach.

Day 5: Maui – Iao Valley State Park – Hale’akala Volcano Crater
This morning we will meet to review the tour itineraries and plans on Maui and Oahu.

Day 6: Maui - Road to Hana Tour
Another fantastic highlight of the Hawaiian Islands is yours today with a journey on the Road to Hana. Known as one of the most beautiful, tropical drives in the Pacific, this road will delight you with amazing tropical jungles, several gorgeous waterfalls, and exotic beaches. Although the town of Hana is charming, it’s the journey, not the destination, that makes this tour so great (included lunch). Back to the resort, this evening is at your leisure.

Day 7: Fly to Oahu – Oahu Island Tour
This morning we fly to Honolulu on the Island of Oahu.  The island tour includes sites in Honolulu, including Waikiki Beach, the Iolani Royal Palace, and then on to the awesome views from the Pali Lookout, the beautiful setting of the Byodo-In Buddhist Temple, and a stop at Laie Beach Park.
