Delve into the island’s sustainable agricultural practices and ‘Make a Difference’ next. Visit a local farm and ‘Connect with Locals’ enjoying a ‘Be My Guest’ lunch with wine, including Hawaiian specialities made with the freshest local ingredients. As the sun sets over the Pacific, take a gentle stroll to nearby Whalers Village or venture into old town Lahaina to dine at one of the many restaurants.
