On this first of a two part series from Hawaii, we will be visiting two of the four main islands, Maui, and the big island of Hawaii. We first arrive in Maui and will tour the islandís rich countryside, gardens, mountains, beaches, waterfalls and zip-lines, then dive the oceans depths where we swim with big sea turtles and swim through historic lava tubes.
Our dive host in Maui is Ed Robinsonís Diving Adventures located at Kihei, where we stayed at his Koki Hale Deluxe Suite. An additional host is the Aston Maui Lu in Kihei where we enjoyed a native luau complete with traditional dancers.
We did some world class diving off the south side of Maui while at Ed Robinsons, and were then hosted by Extended Horizonís divers, who took us to the west side of the island for a day of diving off the Lanai area in lava tube caves.
In part two of this series, we fly to the big island of Hawaii and arrive at Kailua Kona, hosted by Jackís Diving Locker and the King Kamehamehaís Kona Beach Hotel, both in Kailua.
Here we dive the famous Manta night dive with Jackís Diving Locker and witness 19 Mantas in a feeding frenzy as they dive over the powerful nightlights and digest the plankton drawn to the lights right over our heads for 45 minutes of exciting, continuous action.
Later we take both a road trip and a two hour helicopter tour of the island and journey over miles of plantations, tropical rainforests, hidden waterfalls and the islandís coastline on our way to Hawaiiís active volcano Kilauea, where we see the deep crater with its hot red lava boiling inside billowing smoke.
Mahalo! Now sit back and enjoy this first of our two part series from Hawaii.
