Transcript

  • 1. The activities of Hawaii By Lily Neff In this presentation I will be giving an overview of each island
  • 2. The map
  • 3. Kauai, Waimea Canyon This is Waimea Canyon, which Mark Twain called, "the Grand Canyon of the Pacific." Over 10 miles long, and almost 4,000 feet deep, this marvel was formed by erosion and the catastrophic collapse of the volcano that created Kauai. See Hanapepe Lookout, exciting Spouting Horn and the south coast Poipu Resorts made famous in the Elvis Presley movie, Blue Hawaii.
  • 4. Niihau, the Carnival cruise ship • The most famous attraction on Niihau is the carnival cruise ship. • At 1,004 feet long and with a tonnage of 130,000, Carnival Cruise Lines' Carnival Dream is one of the larger cruise ships currently in operation today. Additionally, the Carnival Dream has 13 decks that are accessible to passengers. The Carnival Dream has a maximum cruising speed of 22 knots, which is about average for a vessel of its kind.
  • 5. Oahu, Pearl Harbor Take an in-depth journey to Pearl understanding of Pearl Harbor itself and the USS Arizona Memorial with an informative introductory audio tour. Visit the Road to War and Attack exhibit galleries, and watch film footage of the infamous December 7, 1941 attack. While on Ford Island, you can also see the USS Oklahoma Memorial, take a guided tour of the Battleship Missouri Memorial, and enjoy an audio tour of the Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.
  • 6. Molokai, old town Kaunakakai In the central town of Kaunakakai, an absence of traffic lights take you back to a simpler time, virtually unchanged since the early 1900s. This charming paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town is also the island’s main harbor, where some locals still fish for their dinner. Stroll down to Kaunakakai Harbor to the end of the state's longest pier, extending well past the reef - just you, the local fisherman and the sound of local boats slowly jetting out of the harbor.
  • 7. Lanai, puu pehe (Sweetheart Rock) Legend tells of two lovers, a Hawaiian maiden named Pehe from Lahaina and a young warrior from Lanai named Makakehau. He was so taken with her beauty that whenever he laid eyes upon her they would mist up in tears. Hence his name: Maka (eyes) Kehau (mist). He took her back to Lanai and hid her in a sea cave at the base of Maneles cliff.
  • 8. Maui, whale watching Maui is your gateway to some of the best whale watching in the world. The waters off of West Maui and South Maui are shielded by the West Maui Mountains and Haleakala, creating calm and clear waters for high visibility. Humpback whales are also drawn to the area’s shallow waters, less than 600 feet deep, making Maui an ideal spot to start your voyage during the winter whale watching season from December to May.
  • 9. Kahoolawe, no society The Hawaiian island of Kahoolawe is located between the islands of Maui and Lanai and it is approximately 45 square miles in size. It has been known as the "forgotten isle", "desolate isle", and the "target isle". Kahoolawe has been used at different times as a penal colony, a ranch, a forest reserve, and a military training and testing ground.
  • 10. Hawaii, volcanoes This United States National Park was established in 1916 and features within its boundaries include the Kilauea Volcano Caldera, the Thurston Lava Tube, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, the historic Volcano House Hotel, the Jagger Museum, and many trails and wilderness areas. The Kilauea Volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the world, and within the park it is sometimes possible to view active lava flows up close.
