Perfect Moments in the Islands of Hawaii
You know them when you see them, when you feel them, and especially, when you play a starring role in them -- those instants in time when something or someone stops you dead in your tracks and you're overcome with a sense of wonder and blessed with the joy of discovery.
We call them, perfect moments, though they tend to last a lifetime, and it probably won't surprise you to learn that you'll experience more of them in the Islands of Hawai'i than anywhere else on earth. http://www.gohawaii.com/ A perfect moment in Hawai'i can be standing on a charter boat off Hawaiis Big Island, feeling the warm glow of a volcano as it pours new life into the sea; unearthing the secrets of the magical Napali Coast from a helicopter above the Island of Kaua'i, watching humpback whales frolic in the warm, tropical waters off the coast of Maui, swimming with dolphins in the clear waters of Lana'i's Manele Bay, riding a mule down the world's highest sea cliffs on the Island of Moloka'i; or riding gentle surf within sight of Waikiki's towering sand castles on the Island of O'ahu.
Moment to moment, a Hawaii vacation promises to release you from the ordinary and reintroduce you to the basic necessities of renewal: fresh air, warm sunshine, crystal water, good food, smiling faces, all the treasures of the earth in abundance, and the time to enjoy them all.
