One of our most popular tours, the Island Tour averages 4-8 participants, allowing our guides to provide you with the personal touch. From the tropical east end
to the cascading hills of the west side, you will experience and understand why Molokai captures the heart
of so many visitors.
This trip takes 7-8 hours.
Halawa Valley Lookout
There is no better way to see east Molokai than from the comfort of one of our bus tours. Let our driver worry about the
winding road as you are free to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery while we cruise along the coastline ending at a panoramic view of Halawa Valley.
A short stop at a recently restored fishpond gives you a small glimpse into Hawai'i's past. In ancient Hawai'i, fishponds were an integral part
of the ahupua'a, the land area that stretched from the mountains to the coral reefs. The Hawai'ians built rock-walled enclosures in near shore waters,
to raise fish for their communities and families.
St Joseph's Church
One of four churches that comprise the St. Damien Molokai Catholic Parish, St. Joseph was built by Father Damien in 1876 and the church still
stands as it did then, including the original confessional and Flemish ceilings.
Enjoy lunch (included in your tour price) at their oceanside restraunt.
Pala'au State Park
At the end of highway 470, Pala'au State Park is a cool getaway especially in the hot summer months. Here you can enjoy two short strolls to visit local landmarks.
A light trail hike (roughly 3 minutes) through ironwood forest where you will enjoy a phenomenal view of Kalaupapa Peninsula 1600' below.
In the 1850's when Hansen's disease, formerly known as Leprosy, swept through the Hawaiian Isles the worst cases were sent to this isolated peninsula.
If time allows, we will also visit this sacred Hawaiian fertility site. One of many sacred places on Moloka`i,
Kauleonanahoa is considered a place of much power and is especially significant to women who suffer from infertility. Visit with an
open mind and respect the culture it is a part of.
Coffees of Hawaii
Just in time for an afternoon treat. You will want to try one of their blended drinks, the Mocha Momma is a favorite
of locals and visitors alike. Enjoy a stroll along the self guided deck tour or, pop into the Blue Monkey gift shop
where you are sure to find something interesting to take home. (There is free wi-fi here for those people who can't bear
to leave their computers at home.)
Purdy's Macadamia Nut Farm
Purdy's is a family owned business. Tours of the farm include a walk through the grove to see the macadamia nuts in various
stages of development. Sample the nuts and try your hand at cracking a few.
Three miles of white sand beach with very few people. A beautiful spot for photos.
Talk about small town, Maunaloa is a perfect example. A general store, post office, school and church are within walking distance of each other. You will definitely want
to check out the Big Wind Kite Factory. Besides kites they have a wide variety of fun stuff for sale in their store.
