For the Water Enthusiast

The property’s King’s Pond, an Ocean Home favorite, is home to over 4,000 fish and is perfect for snorkeling, SNUBA or simply lounging. Home to a very friendly Eagle Ray and several fish with loads of personality, be sure to sign up for an in-water feeding of the pond’s residents. For the more adventurous water enthusiasts, we recommend a visit to the experts at the property’s Ocean Adventures. The warm, crystal clear water of the Pacific Ocean is the ultimate playground, and they can’t wait to share it with you. Learn the basic skills of outrigger paddling, power snorkel using an underwater scooter or get towed behind a small boat and experience the sensation of flying underwater!

“You can’t teach Aloha, you share Aloha,” comments Uncle Earl Regidor, the cultural center manager at Hual?lai. His passion for Hawaiian culture, its people and their traditions is evident in the programs and classes he oversees at the resort. No visit to Hualalai is complete without time in the center. Popular with visitors of all ages, according to Uncle Earl, the cowry shell bracelet and lei making classes engage and entertain while showcasing cultural traditions. For deeper cultural immersion, consider a Hawaiian language or ‘ukulele class.
