Welcome to Hawaii! Set sail and enjoy the sunset before dropping anchor for the evening.

DAY 2 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.

At Kailua-Kona, stroll through town at your own pace, and uncover the charm of this historic town.

DAY 4 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 5 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, explore by skiff, or stretch your legs on hike—whichever activities suit your fancy.

Cap off the day and celebrate this evening with the Captain’s Dinner.

DAY 7 Molokaʻi
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 lessons 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.
