Description:This is not a vacation; it is an adventure. During the 8 day adventure, travelers will visit Honolulu, Waikiki, Hilo, and Kona. Students will experience lush nature and marine life while hiking the Diamond Head trail, visiting Nuuanu Pali lookout, and snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay. Hawaii is also rich with history. Students will visit World War II memorials and learn about Polynesian traditions with a traditional luau dinner and visiting the Place of Refuge National Park. Students will also spend time on Waikiki Beach, visit the Dole Plantation, tour a coffee farm, and visit the Imiloa Astronomy Center. The current itinerary includes a visit to Volcanoes National Park; this opportunity will be evaluated closer to the departure date. Talk about interdisciplinary! This trip offers history, ecology, cultural anthropology, and an all around grand adventure.
