November 7, 2023
Day 1 – Welcome to Hawaii! You’ll be transferred to our hospitality area on Molokai. Later, the Captain and crew greet you with smiles and champagne as you board the awaiting Safari Explorer. This evening, settle in and enjoy dinner aboard the yacht, before a presentation about your week ahead.
Day 2 – Molokai 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 ever 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 Molokai Museum, discover the history of this ancient homeland as you enjoy an evening paʻina (feast), complete with a home-style Hawaiian jam session.
Day 3 – Lana’i 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, explore by skiff, or stretch your legs on a hike—whichever activities suit your fancy. Take a stroll 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 islands plantation days with a visit to the quaint Lanaʻi Culture and Heritage Center.
Day 4 – 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 Lanaʻi, Molokai, and Maui—provides front-row seats as you cruise through these productive marine breeding grounds searching for dolphins, whales, and other marine life.
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 snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding are all possible.
Day 6: Honomalino Bay Fringed by coconut palms, Honomalino Bay offers a morning of snorkeling, paddle boarding, and kayaking. The bay reveals a diversity of colorful corals, sponges, and tropical fishes. Lava tubes, kayaking, and skiff tours fill out your day of adventure—in an area known to be favored by marine mammals. This evening you’ll anchor at an offshore location for a thrilling night snorkel with Giant Pacific Manta rays.
Day 7 – Kailua-Kona Head south for exploration of the island’s untouched shores—by skiff or by snorkel. At Kailua-Kona, stroll through town at your own pace, and uncover the charm of this historic town. This evening, celebrate with the Captain’s Dinner and photographic recap of your adventure.
Day 8 – Hawaiʻi, the Big Island – Disembark As the Safari Explorer docks at Kawaihae Harbor, you’ll be transferred to the Kona Airport or to your extended UnCruise hotel stay.
