First trip to Hawaii and looking for activities for 50+

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are well traveled but this will be our first trip to Hawaii. I have booked us into the Doubletree Alana Waikiki for 5 nights and then on to the Ka'anapali Beach CLub in Maui for another 5 nights. We leave on Thanksgiving day.

We would like to do a luau but I am finding all of the information a bit overwhelming. We would like to do a more intimate luau without the 400 people on the buffet line. We did find the Feast of Lele in Maui which sounds perfect but I have a seafood allergy and can not get confirmation from anyone that this can be accomodated. Has anyone else had issues with seafood allergies and can recommend a good luau? Any other recommendations for luaus either on Oahu or Maui?

Also, we are pretty laid back and looking for other activites for 50+ people to do. Any recommendations? We heard that the Pearl Harbor tours are very crowded. Is there a best time to visit? And what about a drive to Hana in Maui? Is this recommended?

I appreciate your help and comments! Thank you!
