There's much more to do: explore the activities along Waimea Bay, take in the pleasant sights at Laie Hawaii Temple, play a few rounds at Turtle Bay Golf, and pause for some photo ops at Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument.

For photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Kahuku tour itinerary website .

Boston to Kahuku is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Boston to Kahuku. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Boston in November, with highs in Kahuku at 78°F and lows at 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sun) to allow time to travel to Kapalua.
