The retreat begins on a Friday, February 3, 2012. Please plan to be at the Kona airport no later than 1PM. (Arriving a day or more early and staying a few days after the retreat is deliciously recommended. We can provide suggestions for accommodations). From the airport, we will go directly to a sheltered beach for snorkeling. This is an opportunity to test your gear and receive snorkeling instruction if needed.

Retreat ends with whale watching on Friday February 10 from 1-4pm with optional dinner together. I suggest you stay the weekend to give yourself time to integrate. However if you are leaving that night, (or renting your own car for the weekend) we can bring you to the airport by 5pm. Please make your plane reservation to fly out for 7PM or later.

You can be transported to the airport to pick up a car rental before the Whale Watching Boat excursion or dropped off in Kona if you decide to stay longer in Paradise!
