9 Days | 8 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

What a fabulous opportunity to try something new (snorkelling, surfing, and riding in a submarine) while learning about Hawaiian history and culture and ocean and reef life. Doing this all with my granddaughter made it even more special. Great leaders, interesting participants, pace of programming, and choice of activites all led to a memorable experience. Many thanks.

Our 11 and 13 year old grandsons enjoyed the program immensely. Their favorite activity was surfing. They had an opportunity for surfing lessons on 2 different days and they also rented a surf board on a free afternoon - only $10. They liked the submarine ride, pool time in Kona and some of the snorkeling. Their least favorite activity was The Bishop Museum. It was interesting enough, but too much time was allowed there - even for the grandparents. Our leaders did a good job and were kept busy when "Flossie" headed for Hawaii. Our last catamaran snorkel trip and private residence luau had to be cancelled, but they arranged for a different luau.

The Hawaiian Water Adventure: An Intergenerational Marine Exploration program that we participated in was a wonderful trip where we learned a great deal about Hawaii's Marine life as well as about Hawaiian Culture through a diverse array of activities that were great fun for both grandparents and grandchildren alike. This was my first Road Scholar program and I have to say, it made for the best vacation I have experienced in my life! You can be sure that I will attend more Road Scholar programs, both for adults as well as family and inter-generational programs!
