Day Description
January 11, 2020 — Hawai'i, The Big Island (Embarkation)

Welcome to Hawaii! You'll be transferred to our hospitality area to gather with fellow travelers and meet your Olivia staff and Expedition Leader. Following an introduction to the week ahead, a private transfer takes you to the Safari Explorer, awaiting dockside at Kawaihae Harbor. Set sail and enjoy the sunset before dropping anchor for the evening.

January 12, 2020 — Honomalino Bay

The search is on as you set sail through an area known to be favored by marine mammals. Lava tubes, skiff tours and kayaking are in store for a day of ultimate adventure. Fringed by coconut palms, Honomalino Bay offers opportunities for snorkeling, paddle boarding and more kayaking. The bay reveals a diversity of colorful corals, sponges and tropical fishes. This evening, you’ll anchor at an offshore location to search for and night snorkel with Giant Pacific Manta Rays.

January 13, 2020 — Kealakekua Bay / Kailua-Kona

Skiff to Kealakekua Bay, where Captain Cook was slain in 1779, for some of the island’s best snorkeling. On a guided exploration by kayak and skiff, your expedition team shares their knowledge about the marine life and history of the bay. At Kailua-Kona, stroll through town at your own pace, and uncover the charm of this historic town.

January 14, 2020 — 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 snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding are all possible!

January 15, 2020 — Lānaʻi

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. Snorkel, paddle board, kayak, and explore by skiff. Choose a long or short hike–whichever suits your fancy–to Sweetheart Rock, a sea stack jutting 80 feet above the crashing surf, and discover the legend of the princess Puu Pehe. Learn about the island’s plantation days with a visit to the quaint Lānaʻi Culture and Heritage Center.

January 16, 2020 — Olowalu / West Maui

In ancient times, Olowalu was considered a place of refuge. Today, it delivers a treat of snorkeling among coral gardens teeming with underwater life and a known sea turtle habitat. The Humpback National Marine Sanctuary—located between Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi, and Maui—provides front-row seats as you cruise through these productive marine breeding grounds searching for dolphins, whales, and other marine life. Cap off the day and celebrate this evening with the Captain’s Dinner.

January 17, 2020 — Moloka'i

A warm Aloha spirit gives you a sense of Hawaii long ago. No stop lights, no high-rises—just a welcome slower pace. “Talk story” with locals and experience their land and traditions as few visitors do. You’ll hear legends and lore, then take in a cultural lesson 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 Molokaʻi Museum, discover the history of this ancient homeland as you enjoy an evening paʻina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian jam session.

January 18, 2020 — Moloka'i (Disembarkation)

Gather for breakfast before the Safari Explorer docks on Molokaʻi, where you’ll be transferred to the Molokaʻi Airport. Or, if your flight is later in the day, you’ll have the option to be transferred to an Olivia Host Hotel where you may relax and store your luggage, and then be transferred to the Moloka’I Airport in time for your flight, or continue your stay on your own.

Itineraries are guidelines and variations and the order of days will occur to maximize your experience.
