Stop at incredible Ka’eleku Cavern. Said to have been created by Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of fire, this enormous subterranean lava tube features dramatic stalactites and stalagmites. Wind your way through the underground cave passage with your guide and marvel at the unique landscape: mounds of seemingly chocolate-covered lava formations and swirls formed more than 30,000 years ago. Be sure to have your camera ready for amazing photos!
After your cave tour, enjoy a scrumptious Pacific Rim lunch served on a linen table cloth in a pavilion at the cavern. Dine on grilled chicken or seared ono with organic greens, vegetable pasta salad, fresh fruit and a brownie.
Arrive finally in Hana, a remote town on the rugged Pacific coastline featuring pristine beaches and verdant rainforests. Hop out the limo-van to stretch your legs and explore the cascading waterfalls and bamboo forests. Your guide will take you on a tour of Hana Tropicals, a stunning garden and nursery, where you can admire the beautiful flowers and vegetation.
Your return journey will be at a ‘Maui-style’ pace, with plenty of time to swim in the crystal-clear freshwater pools or simply relax and soak in the warm island atmosphere. You’ll arrive back at your Maui hotel in the early evening.
