I was drawn to visit Kalaupapa after reading the book "Molokai". This was my 32nd birthday trip and a huge bucket list item for me. It is hard to explain in words what I took from the trip and my tour guide, Keahi. His profound...More

The women who ran the operation were great: competent, friendly and helpful. Saw lots of axis deer, wild pigs and wild goats. I'd say it was the highlight of our trip to Molokai.
