Hawaiian Cruise, information for going out
Why a cruise to Hawaii?
Hawaii is a volcanic archipelago with 7 main islands and many smaller or uninhabited islands, which since 1959 have become the 50th Federal State of the United States. They are located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, in an isolated and fascinating place, 4000 kilometers from the coasts of California and Tahiti. The cruise is undoubtedly the ideal way to visit them. It allows you to move quickly between the various islands, use the long stays on the ground for excursions and experience a charming ocean crossing to reach these islands.
Landscapes and traditions that fill the heart with beauty
It is surprising how small islands can encompass such diverse landscapes: sandy beaches and rocky coasts, seabeds, tropical forests and active volcanoes over 4000 meters high, with snowy peaks. The landscape changes rapidly under the influence of trade winds, a constant but never aggressive presence.
The location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean has created a unique culture with American, Asian and Polynesian influences. “Spirit of Aloha” is the local, peaceful lifestyle rich in spirituality. The power of nature has given life to a rich mythology, based on mother earth and father heaven. Legends, propitiatory dances such as Hula dance, local music and rituals will immerse you in a dimension where everything is in harmony and peace.
For these reasons, Hawaii is a paradise for surfers, biologists, nature lovers, and exotic cultures.
When to go to Hawaii
Hawaii has a tropical climate with few year-round temperature changes, slightly warmer temperatures between June and October, and a year-round sea suitable for sports and swimming. In Honolulu, the capital, temperatures range from a minimum of 27° to a maximum of 31°. Cruise travel allows you to avoid areas where trade winds often rain, preferring the sunniest and most welcoming ports.
The perfect suitcase for a Hawaiian cruise is composed of summer dresses, comfortable and breathable, bathing suits, pareos and hats of the wide brim, accessories for marine sports. For the nights on board a long and light dress with scarf or shawl will be enough and for men a white shirt in linen or cotton with a light suit. Don’t forget to bring mountain boots, a thick shirt, and a waterproof jacket if you are planning a hike in the forest or a trekking in the volcanoes.
Visas and vaccinations
To go to Hawaii, the same rules are valid for entering the U.S., with a passport valid for more than 6 months from the date of return and a tourist visa. The Tao ticket team can provide you with practical information to obtain it. No vaccination required; it is advisable to bring the usual medicines and baby food.
