Luxury, Beauty and Adventure – The Best of Hawaii’s Big Island
Join Mary and me for our upcoming Adventure in Hawaii and discover the many wonders of the archipelago’s biggest island. Hosted at the luxurious Mauna Lani Bay Resort, the spacious rooms all have ocean views and the grounds sport hammerhead sharks, rays, jacks, and colorful reef species throughout their decorative ponds. Pi’i, caretaker of the Royal Fish Ponds, will conduct a private tour for our group.
Within 100 yards of the beach lies one of the most beautiful and populated natural reefs I’ve ever seen in Hawaii and I have over 15 years of snorkeling and SCUBA experience in the Islands. Even beginners can swim right along side yellow tang, black trigger, parrotfish, butterfly, blue angels, puffer fish and more.
Join us Where the McDougall Program all Began
Daniel Akaka, our Hawaiian historian, will guide us on a private tour of the petroglyphs, koa outrigger canoes, and the plantation house where Mary, Heather and I all stayed 38 years ago, long before any hotels were built in the area.
For those interested in how the McDougall Program started on the Hamakua Sugar Plantation between 1973 and 1976, you are invited to visit a few of the places that stimulated our ideas about the importance of a starch based diet for the prevention and cure of common diseases.
Exotic Tropical Excursions Every Day
We have four days of adventure planned for you during this trip.
- Kayak down the great flumes that once irrigated Hawaii’s sugar plantations.
- Watch for humpbacks and go snorkeling from our private catamaran as we go whale watching.
- Tour Volcano National Park – one of the world’s majestic natural treasures.
- Visit Waipio Valley, the Valley of the Kings, and explore the lush eastern coast on a trip to Honokaa and the Hamakua Sugar Plantation.
Delicious Meals and a Healthy Education
All meals are included and all the food will follow the McDougall Program. By the time we arrive in January of 2014, Mary will have spent weeks working with the chefs at the Mauna Lani in order to make this the most delicious and bountiful dining experience ever prepared for McDougall Adventure travelers – which is quite a claim considering we’ve entertained more than 2000 people over the past 20 years. Mary and I will be actively involved in the entire trip, and I will be providing daily lectures on health and nutrition.
