Hawaii New Years Singles Vacation Daily Itinerary

Vacation Day 1 - Friday:  Argive in Honolulu

Arrive at Honolulu airport and take the provided shuttle to the Outrigger Reef on the Beach hotel.
Tonight meet and greet your hostess and fellow vacationers over an optional dinner.

Vacation Day 2 - Saturday: Grand Circle Island TourGrand Circle Island Tour

The Grand Circle Island Tour is Oahu's most popular narrated tour, and a great way to get oriented to the island if it's your first visit—or learn new things even if you've been to Oahu before. We will cover 120 miles of Oahu, from end to end, in this day-long trip.

Starting in Waikiki , we will travel aboard an air-conditioned bus through the upscale neighborhoods of East Oahu, through Hawaii Kai, and along the rugged southeast coastline past the Halona Blowhole and Sandy Beach. See the cliffs of Makapuu with their stunning view of Rabbit Island, continue through the Hawaiian Homestead lands of Waimanalo, and then into laidback Kailua town. Travel up the tree-lined Pali highway for a stop at the 1,186-foot Pali Lookout, the site of King Kamehameha's last battle and unsurpassed views of the windward coast.

From there, continue on to the North Shore, passing through rural towns like Haleiwa and Waimea Bay, where the winter surf can create legendary 30-foot waves. We will get to see other famous surfing spots like Sunset Beach, Ehukai, and the Banzai Pipeline. The tour continues past the quaint towns of Kahuku and Laie, home of the Mormon Temple and the Polynesian Cultural Center. Last but not least, we will continue through Punaluu all the way to Kaneohe town before heading back to Waikiki after a full day's sightseeing.

Our day-long tour also includes a stop for lunch (cost not included) at the Coral Kingdom restaurant and gift shop on the windward side of the island, plus a stop at the Dole Plantation in central Oahu

Enjoy your Welcome Dinner at a casual Waikiki hangout

Vacation Day 3 - Sunday: Hanauma Bay SnorkelingHanaumba Bay Turtle

Hanauma Bay is a protected marine life conservation area and one of the world's best places for novice snorkelers. "The water is very clear once you get away from the beach. … You can feel the waves but it is a very easy swim." Within the bay's calm waters, you can swim through a coral reef with more than 450 species of vibrant tropical fish, a quarter of which are native to Hawaii.

Our half-day excursion includes round-trip transportation from Waikiki (about 25 minutes each way) and all the equipment we will need. You'll get a silicone-tempered mask, "J"-type snorkels, and endurance vinyl acetate fins, plus a defogger for your masks—all of it sanitized after each use. Additional snorkeling accessories (like underwater cameras) are available onsite for an additional cost, and you can bring your own gear if you prefer.

En route to Hanauma Bay, a DVD presentation of Hawaiian marine life will get you inspired with a glimpse of the fish and sea creatures you might encounter. Once we arrive, our driver will give us an overview of how to use our gear. There is also a 10-minute mandatory orientation video that runs on the half-hour.

The walk to the beach is a bit steep, so keep that in mind when deciding what to bring with you. Lockers are available on the beach, and there is food at the top of the hill.

Vacation Day 4 - Monday: Pearl Harbor & Honolulu City Tour

Pearl Harbor & Honolulu City Tour The Pearl Harbor & Honolulu City Tour is one of Oahu's most popular sightseeing experiences and gives you a special look at Honolulu's history.

We will travel first to historic Pearl Harbor, where we will have time to tour the renovated Pearl Harbor Memorial Museum and Visitor Center, the hub for all four Pearl Harbor historic sites: WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument (USS Arizona Memorial), USS Bowfin Submarine Museum, USS Missouri Memorial, and the Pacific Aviation Museum.

After our visit, we are off on a fully narrated tour of Honolulu city highlights. We will pass Punchbowl Crater, part of an extinct volcano and now home to the National Cemetery of the Pacific. Downtown see the state capitol and Washington Place, former home of Hawaiian royalty and Hawaii's governors.

A stop at the King Kamehameha statue allows time to take photos. View Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil (and an attraction that you can visit later using your Go Oahu Card), and Kawaiahao Church, where services are still held in the native Hawaiian language. Our tour winds up with a drive through Chinatown before returning to Waikiki in the early afternoon.
  
Vacation Day 5 - Tuesday: Manoa Waterfall Hike - Catamaran Sail - New Years Eve

Manoa FalsManoa Valley is home to verdant rainforest and waterfalls that feel untouched by man. Pass through a bamboo forest and mountain apple and guava trees on our way to the 150-foot Manoa Waterfall. (Be warned that like any waterfall, it won't be as large during dry spells.) We will have plenty  photo opportunities of tropical birds, mountain pools, and island flowers.

Once at the trailhead, we get bottled water, snacks, and binoculars. The hike is about 30 minutes to the waterfall and rated for beginning hikers.

Wear comfortable shoes that you don't mind getting muddy, pack bug spray, and be ready for humidity or even sudden downpours no matter what the weather was like at the hotel—this is a rainforest after all. 

This afternoon we will travel the open waters of the Pacific on our 2 hour Whale Watching Catamaran cruise. You'll be amazed at how easily the catamaran slices through waves while still offering an ultra-comfortable ride. Our crew will take us along Oahu's shores, during which time you should be alert for dolphins, flying fish and sea turtles. 

Winter time is whale watching season in Hawaii, when 3,000-5,000 majestic North Pacific humpback whales leave their summer home in icy Alaskan waters and migrate 3,000 miles to warm Hawaiian waters

Tonight is our New Year's Eve dinner at a local restaurant and midnight fireworks on the beach of Waikiki.

Vacation Day 6 - Wednesday: Waikiki Beach -  New Year's Day 

Free day to enjoy our wonderful vacation resort and the beach at Waikiki

Vacation Day 7 - Thursday: Polynesian Cultural Center - Luau - HA Breath of Life Show

Polyensian CenterWhat better way to enjoy our final vacation afternoon than to immerse ourselves in the many cultures of the Pacific Islands at the 42-acre Polynesian Cultural Center? We will stroll through a complex of recreated villages in Aotearoa (New Zealand), ancient Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa, and Tonga. At each stop, we will find hands-on activities and demonstrations showing cultural wonders like the art of fire dancing, climbing 50-foot trees in bare feet, spear-throwing, coconut-husking, and the Haka warrior dance!

Enjoy the regional culinary delights of Polynesian culture as you sample Tahitian coconut bread or “poi”, the staple Hawaiian food made out of taro. Explore some of the traditions of the different islands like lei-making, or try your skill at playing derua and making Fijian music.

Then we will enjoy a luau, one of the best on the island, and includes an all-you-can-eat buffet with authentic Hawaiian food. The PCC's "Ambassador of Aloha" emcee will explain the imu ceremony where the roasted pig is lifted from its cooking pit, and also introduces an evening full of Hawaiian music, entertainment, and hula.

After dinner experience "HА™" - the spectacle of over a hundred performers from across the Pacific, drums, dance, all new music and special effects, a fire spewing volcano and a world renowned fire knife performance. Come. Breathe it in. And let the island spirit live in you long after our departure.

Vacation Day 8 - Friday: Depart Hawaii

Sad to say but our vacation ends today and it is time to say Aloha to Waikiki and all your new travel friends.  Board the airport shuttle according to your flight schedule.
