Visit Dole Plantation

Dole Plantation offers “Hawaii’s Complete Pineapple Experience.” Take the garden tour to learn about pineapple, cacao, coffee plants, and more.

Crack Open a Coconut

Fruit stands all over the islands sell fresh coconut. The vendor will crack it open or drill a hole in it so you can sip the delightfully refreshing coconut water straight from the source!

The waters of Hawaii are clear and full of colorful sea life. Go snorkeling to see Hawaiian green sea turtles, fragile reef systems, and tons of colorful fish.

Fish for the Big One

Spend the Day at Hulopoe Bay

Hulopoe Bay on the island of Lanai is great for swimming and snorkeling. Look for starfish in tide pools, keep an eye out for spinner dolphins offshore, and hike to impressive Sweetheart Rock.

Hike above the Clouds
