On the 17th (Sat), experience rural life at Heavenly Hawaiian Kona Coffee Farm, then get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and then whizz through the canopy at Hawaii Forest and Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 18th (Sun): enjoy the sand and surf at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Anaehoomalu.
