OVER Hawaii

The unique wonders of Hawai‘i are explored in this illuminating, off-the-beaten-path tour of Hawai‘i’s six major Hawaiian islands: Hawai‘i Island, Maui, Lāna‘i, Moloka‘i, O‘ahu and Kaua‘i.

While popular visitor destinations such as Honolulu are highlighted, much of this captivating hour features areas that can be accessed only by helicopter—or the extremely adventurous hiker. The itinerary includes unspoiled rain forests, majestic valleys, otherworldly volcanic landscapes, spectacular sea cliffs, and idyllic beaches where turquoise waters meet pristine white sands. "OVER Hawai‘i" also ventures under, diving into Hawai‘i’s waters to visit coral reefs teeming with sea life.

"OVER Hawai‘i" celebrates not only the scenic beauty of Hawai‘i but its cultural heritage as well, featuring commentary by people who call Hawai‘i home and who tell the islands’ stories from an authentically Hawaiian point of view. The soundtrack showcases a wide range of traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music.

Blending breathtaking scenery with fascinating insights, "OVER Hawai‘i" reveals the remarkable diversity of America’s 50th state.

"OVER" Hawai'i" premiered Saturday, Nov. 5, 2011.
