Why is the Saint Damien Leper Colony such a treat to visit?

The story of the leper colony on the Kalaupapa peninsula of Molokai is one of the most fascinating pieces of Hawaiian history. The tour to visit this very special location is one of the most requested tours we offer. You will get a feel of the isolation and desperation that these people were exiled to over a hundred years ago. You will see the village where a very few patients and their caregivers still live. Visit the location where victims were dropped off of the boats, and where they set up their initial living area, which was later abandoned. See the churches where services were held each week and hear the stories of Father Damien's empathy and service to this very special population. This full day tour is an experience you won't soon forget. The Kalaupapa peninsula is one of the most beautiful locations in all of Hawaii. Don't miss it!

Of the three islands that make up Maui County, Molokai stands out as having the closest link to old Hawaii. In many ways, landing on Molokai today is similar to arriving on Maui 25 or 30 years ago.
