Dramatic coastlines, towering volcanic mountains, spectacular waterfalls - Hawaii is in a league of its own as a cruise destination.
Our most popular Hawaii cruise is with the Pride of America, offering an exclusive all Hawaii port cruise. However, there are many cruises leaving directly from Australia to Hawaii that stop at many other exotic ports along the way. Give yourself enough time to explore all the islands, as Hawaii has a bounty of beautiful nature, attractions and activities. Every Hawaiian island is volcanic and has its own distinct climate, so be sure to book a shore excursion or extend your stay with a hotel to have a unique experience.
A hidden paradise of swaying palm trees, cascading waterfalls, secluded white sand beaches, azure blue sky and more, Hawaii cruises makes for the perfect vacation of serenity. This Pacific gem is a splendid mix of ancient tradition and enchanting beauty in harmony with its serenity and island ambience. As well as some picturesque beaches, the island of Hawaii is covered in thousands of acres of crops such as cacao, coffee and macadamia nuts. Farm tours are quite popular as they have some incredible views and a few secret waterfalls along the way. The Hawaiian Islands together form an archipelago made of 8 main islands, the biggest being Hawai’i Island (the Big Island), built from five volcanoes. Popular routes include taking in the options of Alaska and the West Coast of America
Experience a different kind of paradise and escape to Kauai, the Aloha State’s oldest and northernmost island. This beautiful island landscape holds an abundance of lush emerald rainforests and sweeping rivers and is often nicknamed “The Garden Isle”. An unspoken rule amongst Kauain locals state that no building can exceed the height of a coconut tree, allowing the skyline to be dominated by swaying green palms and majestic mountains, often under a brilliant rainbow. A wide variety of outdoor activities are available from snorkelling with turtles to hiking along one of Kauai’s many extensive trails. If you’re feeling adventurous you can take a vintage Biplane tour of the entire island. Leisure seekers can sample any of the island’s golden sand beaches and soak up the long-lasting Hawaiian sun. There’s Secret Beach for a more secluded, quiet day or you can head to Hanalei Bay, where you can enjoy the warm waters as well as some small shops and restaurants.
For the unique cosmopolitan experience look no further than Honolulu, a city bursting with a dynamic culture and vibrancy on the island of Oahu. For a colourful array of exotic local marine life, discover the Waikiki Aquarium and get the chance to meet some of the city’s most loved residents – the exuberant Hawaiian monk seals! Waikiki’s famous beaches are the perfect spot for surfing and canoeing, with an abundance of local instructors eager to teach their visitors the classic pastime of the island. Manoa Falls makes for a fantastic dense forest hike, along with boasting a spectacular waterfall at the end of the trail. For a more historic experience you can travel just thirty minutes outside of the city to Pearl Harbour. The historic national landmark remembers the devastating events which lead to America’s involvement in the second world war.
Maui is the second largest island in the group, often referred to as the “Valley Isle” as a result of the vastness and sheer beauty of Iao Valley. As well as guided tours through the stunning rainforest of the valley, you can expect thirty miles beaches along the coast. Whether its surfing, snorkelling, swimming or simply laying under the sun there’s a Maui beach to suit your style. There are more private spots as well as beaches with plenty of lifeguards and picnic areas. Although it’s hard to pull yourself away from the stunning shores, a hike to the summit of Haleakala is well worth an incredible sunset view.
An obvious time for Hawaii cruises are the summer months. Both cities and beaches will be bustling with activity as visitors from all over the world come to spend their vacation on the picture perfect islands. Although it is busy, Hawaii prepares for a summer rush by accommodating young people who wish to spend May through August giving surfing lessons, guided tours and life guarding. If you’re looking to avoid the crowds then the months of February and September have low rainfall and a comfortable temperature in the mid 20’s.
