Big Island Hawaii
The Island of Hawaii, known locally as Big Island, is both the youngest and largest in the archipelago, boasting a larger land…
The state of Hawaii is comprised of a string of volcanic islands that are located 2,390 miles off the coast of California. Hawaii is quite unlike anywhere else in the USA and its six main islands – Big Island, Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai and Lanai – each offer unique experiences.
We recommend combining at least two islands on your visit to Hawaii, connecting by either sea or air. Each one of these islands has their own unique personality, but they all feature lush landscapes that are some of the most biodiverse on the planet. Irrespective of which islands you choose to visit you are guaranteed to be rewarded with a magnificent blend of varied scenery and experiences. We recommend combining sailing with a stay on one of the islands for an ultimate two-week journey.
Whether you are hiking amongst the dramatic scenery of Kauai, swimming with humpback whales off Molokai, exploring active volcanoes at Big Islands’ Volcano National Park, surfing the famous Waikiki beach on Oahu or driving on the ever-scenic road to Hana, the islands offer something for everyone. Hawaii is also a family-friendly destination, and young adventurers can experience their first close encounters with wildlife in the warm waters of these islands.
Sail on board a boutique 36-passenger yacht, passing through remote waters to the islands of Molokai, Lanai and Maui, beginning or ending on Big Island. With a backdrop of dramatic volcanoes and marine-life-rich waters, navigate to lesser-visited sites and embark on kayak explorations of secluded coastlines.
Hawaii is one of the earth’s youngest island chains with a geological makeup including white, black, even green and red sand beaches. Learn about the geology of the islands that are born of fire and made up of the world’s most active volcanoes. Led by British evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins and supported by New Scientist, this is an insight into Hawaii that goes beyond the everyday.
One of the most rewarding experiences within Hawaii is to travel aboard a small expedition cruise, travelling between the islands to explore both the land and sea. This option is often well suited to those who are looking for a more active holiday or family-friendly travel, as cruise adventures allow the opportunity to experience a broader selection of the islands as part of a seamless journey. Travelling with specialist local guides, daily activities are varied and include hiking, snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding and cultural visits. With week-long itineraries, these make for an extremely fulfilling adventure.
Famed for its volcanoes, spectacular scenery and endemic species found nowhere else on the planet, Hawaii is a unique island chain and quite unlike anywhere else in the USA. Each of its six main islands – Big Island, Oahu, Maui, Kauai, Molokai and Lanai – offer unique culture, history, landscapes and local stories.
