A note from the lead concierge and our vacation service coordinator, Gary Perreira --

Attached are several descriptions of the top "Big Island Only" activities which include the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, night manta snorkel, swimming with the Hawaiian Spinner dolphins, & the Mauna Kea Summit & Stars Star gazing. There are also waterfall hikes, zip lines, ATV rides, and a real submarine. Also included is a description of the one day fly away tour to visit Pearl Harbor in Honolulu.  
Also attached is the current resort activities calendar & I was told that they do not anticipate to make any changes to it, but please bear in mind that it is subject to change.  That would also prompt me to advise you to pre-book with me asap as once I have the reservation booked we will be locked in to 2016 pricing and potentially avoiding any price increases for 2017.

To make your plans, contact Gary, and he will help you make your plans.  Gary will be able to match (or beat) most all online specials if they are authorized vendors in their system -- just ask him!
