Hawaii Group Tours
Hawaii – Did your mind instantly go to bright blue skies, white sandy beaches and crystal clear water? That’s ok, it’s usually the first thought upon mention of our nation’s newest state. Achieving statehood in 1959, Hawaii wasn’t always the tourist mecca it is today. The state’s natural scenic diversity, warm tropical climate, vast beaches, oceanic views and even volcanoes have helped shaped Hawaii into the draw that it is today.

TRAVELING TO HAWAII
Hawaii is located in the central Pacific ocean and encompasses almost the entire volcanic Hawaiian archipelago. Archipelago simply means, island group. At the southeastern end of the archipelago, the eight main islands are—in order from northwest to southeast: Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui and the Island of Hawaii. Honolulu is the states capital with Oahu being the largest metropolitan area.
Hawaii experiences a mild year-round weather, so anytime can be an ideal time to visit. Major holidays are typically when the islands see the largest influx of tourists, as well as throughout the winter months.
First, decide which island or islands you plan to visit while on your trip. You could hike some famous trails, or see whales in Maui. Hawaii Island offers the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Explore the Grand Canyon of the Pacific in Kauai, surf waves in Oahu or find you away around any of the beautiful coastlines. Larger cities also offer a vast array of entertainment and attractions for any vacation experience.
Hawaii offers a wide range of accommodations depending on your desired experience. Start with deciding on which island to stay. Take into account the length of your trip. The Big Island has a diverse selection of lodging, but it is twice the size of the other islands combined so when time is a factor being close to attractions is important. Hotels, lodges and resorts can be found throughout Hawaii.
Hawaii is mild throughout the year but during the winter months you may encounter a brief “cold spell” where a light jacket or sweater would be needed. Shorts and t-shirts are typically fine for casual wear and daytime sightseeing. Ask about dress code upon making dining reservations. Most restaurants are casual, but it doesn’t hurt to check. Obviously, don’t forget your beach wear! Swimwear and flip-flops are a must. Bonus points for hiking shoes/hiking sandals and clothing that is somewhat water/moisture resistant. Beach bags, cameras, snacks, personal medications and anything else you’d like to include for sightseeing.
Be conscious of any existing health issues. Medical bands/bracelets should be worn. Consult with your physician before traveling if necessary. Consider also mosquito repellent, sunscreen, water bottles/bladders if hiking a lot and energy bars. Listen carefully to guides and lifeguards regarding lava rock and beach/coastline conditions. Be conscious of wildlife.
Be polite and courteous. Use Aloha for hello and goodbye. Mahalo for thank-you. If presented with a lei, accept it and wear it with pride. If visiting a private residence remove your shoes. Be courteous and respectful, especially of historic or religious sites. Fun and relaxation required!
