Destinations & Shore Excursions

Film focussed fun at the port of Nawiliwili, on the island of Kauai. Famed for its dramatic coastline, tropical rain forests and stunning film set backdrops. Take your pick from helicopters and 4×4 off roading – or how about a trip into the rain forest by motorised canoe?
Time to hit the Jurassic Trail and follow in the footsteps of Indiana Jones and his mates – just promise to watch out for dinosaurs.. okay?!

Another post featuring Hawaii’s Big Island – though this time exploring Kona and the port of Kailua. Foodies rejoice and get prepared to loosen the belt a notch. For not only is this port is home to the world famous Kona Coffee but the equally prized Donkey Balls hand crafted chocolate outlet is also found here too.
Come lunch time, head to Kona Brewing Co. for a beer sampling special and the day just keeps getting better and better. Looking for something more sea focussed and adventurous?
Not a problem as Kailua is also home to Captain Zodiac and his team – your Zodiac RHIB awaits!

Read my latest post featuring the new underwater sensation SNUBA© – and whilst I personally might have struggled to get to grips with the activity, my fellow Snuboids clearly did not! If you are looking to take your snorkelling experience up a level but are not quite ready for the whole tank-on-the-back scuba thing, then SNUBA© might well be the aquatic answer to your wet dreams.
Just be sure to keep the Vaseline handy so as to keep your facial hair from spoiling the fun…
