Students have an incredible opportunity to experience the unique beauty, culture, land and history of Hawaii. It’s a destination made for exploring during your class trip!
Hike through lush, green tropical forests surrounded by clouds at the Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary. Train your gaze on the night skies with a “stellar” narrated astronomy workshop. Walk the black sand beaches of Punalu’u or the volcanic reef below crystal waters teeming with tropical fish.
Next, explore the Thurston Lava Tube, a 300 ft cavern where lava flowed thousands of years ago. Hike the Devastation Trail, baron fields of cinder formed by the 1959 Kilauea Iki eruption. Finally, stop at the VNP Visitors Center to learn about tectonic plates and the Ring of Fire, which contributed to the formation of the island chain. The Steam Vents, Jagger Museum and Halemaumau Crater round out a day full of volcanic fun.
If U.S. history is part of your curriculum, visit Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. Experience the place that launched us into World War II. It’s a powerful learning opportunity for students!
As you explore the Aloha State, don’t forget to check out one of the most famous beaches in the world- Waikiki. You can “hang loose”, try your hand at surfing, or dive into an underwater world during your Barefoot Beach Catamaran Snorkeling Adventure. Don’t forget to stop at the Waikiki Aquarium!
