After Landing, you will be taken on a guided tour of Kalaupapa Settlement. From there you will take a tour of the island, Hawaiian style, and walk in the footprints of the Blessed Father Damien. Your tour guides have a rich knowledge of the history and life of Father Damien and the people he helped.
Our Kalaupapa Day Tour takes you on a spiritual adventure that will make you feel as if Father Damien himself is standing beside you. Our tour is a celebration of Father Damiens life and his commitment to those suffering from leprosy during the late 1800s, and the recognition the Catholic Church has bestowed upon him with his canonization to Saint-hood on October 11, 2009.
The entire trip is an enlightening and emotional experience. The dramatic scenery of Kalawao is breath taking and the simplicity of the church and its setting, inspiring. It is therefore easy to get caught up in the story of Father Damien and his cause, which in the end, was his demise. A day in Kalaupapa is an experience of a life time.
