“Old Hawaii” is the destination on this small-group adventure. Travel the length of the Hamakua Heritage Coast to Tex Drive Inn, famous for beloved local treats called malasadas. Snag a fresh malasada included with the tour. Check out the expansive view of Waipio Valley from the overlook, and travel down to Laupahoehoe Point, famous as the location of a devastating tsunami in 1946.

Walk through the lush rainforest trail to 442 foot tall Akaka Falls before heading off-road for a twenty minute drive to a private waterfall. Swim here and enjoy a Hawaiian-style BBQ lunch prepared by your guide. Hit Rainbow Falls, the golden King Kamehameha statue, and grab some mac nuts and souvenirs before heading back to the ship.
