O'ahu and Maui Family Discovery

8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,779

MODERATE | TAILOR-MADE: Discover the wonders of two Hawaiian Islands on this relaxing family getaway. Splitting time between comfortable resorts on O'ahu and Maui, you’ll have plenty of leisure time in between exciting tours of the underwater world, including a ride in a glass-bottom boat and a snorkelling tour of Molokini, Hawaii’s only island marine sanctuary.

This 8-day Hawaiian vacation begins on famous Waikiki Beach on O'ahu. A hop-on hop-off trolley ticket lets you explore the attractions of Honolulu from the towering cone of Diamond Head to the World War II memorials of Pearl Harbor. You’ll have plenty of downtime to relax by the pool or on the beach, but you can also look forward to an afternoon on a glass-bottom boat, sampling exciting and colourful sights of dolphins, schools of tropical fish, and possibly a shipwreck. Fly the family to Maui and continue your trip to Hawaii on the beautiful shores of Kaanapali. A snorkelling cruise to Molokini Crater and Turtle Arches is sure to be a highlight as you and your kids share the waters with friendly green sea turtles and other sea life. The rest of your time on Maui is at leisure. You can take the lovely drive from Kaanapali north to Kapalua and perhaps check out its famous PGA golf course or stay close to the resort and enjoy local restaurants and the bounties of Hawaiian nature.
