    Hilo

    Gaze up from this charming town and see snow-capped Mauna Kea volcano. It’s just one of the scenic marvels in this exotic greenhouse of lush tropical plants, towering banyan trees, thundering falls and enough flowers to fill a rainbow. Arid deserts, steaming fissures and volcanoes that blow their tops are just as impressive. This evening we sail by Mount Kilauea.

    Kahului

    Maui is known as the "Valley Island," a place where every mountain gorge is filled with lush foliage and abundant plant life. Visit the Iao Valley and see the famed Iao Valley Needle, a 2,250-foot lava rock that pierces the clouds. Visit the Tropical Plantation and take a tram ride through 60 acres of commercial fruit crops including sugarcane, mango, coffee, flowering ginger and more. Afterward, walk through their nursery and visit the agricultural village with its fascinating displays.

    Kona

    King Kamehameha. Captain James Cook. The Fire Goddess Pele. The stuff legends are made of - and the island of Hawaii is just that legendary. The entire island is home to countless places that escape comprehension: Kilauea, one of the worlds most active volcanoes; tropical rainforests; lava deserts; towering mountains; beaches of white, green and black; and waterfalls careening through vibrant valleys of color. The real challenge is deciding what to do first!
