Whether choosing active, outdoor programs or relaxed 'outing' style travel, we'd like the opportunity to work with you to plan your trip. We specialize in giving you the best that all our beautiful islands have to offer- Hawai`i is yours to explore!
For over 20 years, our team has been providing authentic, engaging educational travel 'Beyond the postcard' for visitors from all over the world!
As retired teachers and outdoor educators, it was clear that experiential, hands-on learning for students of all ages- was the most exciting and engaging form of learning! In that light, we endeavor to provide the highest quality programs, curriculum, and program planning support to our guests. Our programs have exemplary safety standards, and our resource staff are verified and bonded to work with children.
Contact us to customize a program to support your travel or study focus, style and budget. You'll be working with award-winning outdoor educators and experienced guides to create the perfect Hawaiian experience for your group! We will customize STEM and STEAM integrated field topics for your students!
We can work with you to support your field study focus and develop content and curriculum for your class trip as well as provide experienced professional educational guides for all aspects of your visit to Hawai`i.
If you are planning a trip as an individual, family or small group and just want to be sure you 'see it all', we'd love to work with you to organize your trip and lodging, and guarantee that you'll be visiting some of the most interesting and beautiful sights in the islands! Hawai`i is so much more than you've ever imagined!
