Wildlife Calendar

Traditionally vibrant and full of activity, Hawaii holds some of the world’s most colourful, beautiful views. It is showered with tropical sun all year round, which is another feature which makes it stand out from other destinations. Hawaii caters for everyone’s holiday needs. Some of the activities available are enjoying a festival, cruising, a honeymoon, watching humpback whales, cycling up a volcano, skiing down a volcano, relaxing on a beautiful beach, diving with dolphins, trekking mountains, playing golf, getting pampered in a spa, or painting the town on a wild night out. The opportunities are endless and you can be assured that whatever sort of holiday you wish for, Hawaii will cater for your needs.

The fantastic thing about Hawaii is that even though it caters so well for holidaymaker’s needs, it is not an overly commercialised resort and so it still has its culture and amazing sights. Lush rainforests, active volcanoes, palm fringed beaches, crystalline waters with enticing coral reef, plunging cliffs, hidden canyons, snow topped mountains, cascading waterfalls and rugged valleys are all part of the exquisite combination that Hawaii has to offer, as well as its superb customer service and hospitality management.

Hawaii is the most isolated land mass in the world, which makes it the perfect destination to escape the stresses of everyday life. With no hassles and no overcrowding, you will feel every bit in your element, relaxing amongst the untamed natural beauty of Hawaii.

Traditional Hawaiian gifts are a must for holidaymakers coming to Hawaii. A trip to the beautiful country would be incomplete without purchasing the authentic souvenirs. For the male, the traditional gift is an “Aloha shirt”, and these symbolise the vibrant atmosphere and blazing heat of the Hawaiian islands. For the female, there is a selection of gifts available for example, a mu’umu’u dress, which is a traditional Hawaiian costume. For something more useable, there are plenty of skin treatments, as there are so many luxury spas in Hawaii. One can purchase these bathroom goods, to be pampered with Hawaiian bliss, even when you are out of the country.

Traditional Gourmet “Kona” coffee is a must to buy as well, as Hawaii is the only coffee growing industry in the US and the coffee holds a distinct taste differentiating it from others. To go with your coffee, macadamia nuts are a Hawaiian speciality. Available in lots of different flavours and forms, including chocolate covered, and garlic roasted, the nuts are a delicacy to accompany your coffee.

The Kona Coast features many diverse dive environments including lava tubes, caves, arches, bommies and huge craters like “Au Au Crater”. We normally advise our customers to go into caverns and lava tubes to see if there are any interesting critters hiding there. The usual sightings include sleeping sharks, nudibranchs, and other nocturnal animal.
