The Hawaii shore excursion is a perfect choice for people who are eager to explore the magic of the Hawaiian Islands. The Hawaiian chain is inhabited with seven islands including: Oahu, Kauai, Maui, Kahoolawe, Lanai, Molokai, and Niihau. However, four of the islands don't have any ports; so, they are unable to handle cruise ships. Some of the ports have no dock, so, you may have to wait for taking tender to make it to shore. Sometimes, it can take about two hours. The port of Honolulu, which includes, Oahu, Kahului, Maui, Nawiliwili, Kauai, and Hilo, known as The Big Islands, are provided with docks. This makes your Hawaii shore excursion easier and more enjoyable.
The majority of shore excursions are destined to stop in the island of Maui in Lahaina or Kahului. Like the other Hawaiian Islands, it has much to offer to visitors and tourists. If you don't have much time to waste then, visit Haleakala, the biggest volcano. It is also known as the largest dormant volcano in the world. Its size is large enough to hold the city, which is 24 miles long and 33 miles wide. You will need at least half a day to make the trip there. Because the clouds roll as the day gets longer, the best thing to do is start the excursion early. It is possible to rent a car or to book a shore excursion. The 37 mile road trip to the top of the volcano passes through different kinds of flora and climates before you reach your destination. In addition, you can visit the Haleakala National Park, which is located at 6,700 feet above sea level.
Kawai Island is very amazing to view when it is seen from the air. The air tour of Kawail is your best choice whenever you decide to visit it. However, if you wish to hike into the rain forest to view Secret Falls then, the Hawaii shore excursion to the Kawai Islands will suit you perfectly. Hana tours are offered for groups of eight or more during the first day in port. Lanhania is the perfect spot for the Hawaii's whale watching because it offers a great chance to share tropical waters with whales and biologists who are researching them.
Because none of the ships spend the night in the Big Island's port of Kona, there is not much time to enjoy the beauty of the island. The best options are Atlantic Submarines and parasailing. There are not many shore excursions available in Hilo. For this reason, it is better to rent a car for driving to Kilauea Volcano. Despite the increased popularity of the helicopter tour of Kilauea, it isn't as scenic as the helicopter tour of Kauai. Therefore, people are disappointed with the amount of lava that they see.
There are many crises that exist for people that are willing to visit Hawaii. There are two ships that sail daily. Seven day cruises are offered by the Independence of American Hawaii Cruises, sailing every Saturday to Kona, Hilo, Honolulu, and Kauai. The same ports can be visited by the Patriot of the United States Lines. In addition, Norwegian Cruise Lines in December of 2001 started offering seven day cruises in and out of Honolulu. Another Hawaii shore excursion is designed to go to Hilo from California. Cruise lines that include Hawaii in their trips from Mexico to Alaska are featured by Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess, and Celebrity.
