What You Can Expect

Spend the day enjoying an adventure in paradise during this 6-hour shore excursion exploring the giant volcanoes, beautiful waterfalls, rare plants and tasty treats of the Big Island. If you’re looking for a great way to sample all the amazing scenery Hawaii has to offer, this is a great way to do it.

Start your trip from the Hilo Port in the morning, heading to Hilo for a glimpse of this historic town before moving on to Rainbow Falls, a picturesque waterfall that looks straight out of a movie. After Rainbow Falls, your adventure really kicks into high gear as you journey into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and up to the summit of its massive Kilauea Volcano.

You’ll have a chance to peer into the smoking expanse of this stark volcanic site before heading to the famous Thurston Lava Tube to walk through a volcanic cave. Before leaving the park, spend time at the Jaggar Museum, where you can learn the science and history behind this fascinating geological area.

Continue your day by stopping to view some of the Big Island’s most beautiful rare orchids at the Akatsuka Orchid Garden, where more than 500 of this gorgeous plants (some worth more than $20,000!) are on display. If you’re feeling hungry, have no fear because your next stop is at one of the state’s largest producers of macadamia nuts. Learn about the harvesting of these uniquely Hawaiian nuts, and then sample some tasty snacks or food such as sandwiches, hot dogs or coconut macadamia nut ice cream.

Cap off your epic Hawaiian adventure by stopping at Richardson Black Sand Beach. This unique dark-colored seashore is produced by the slow erosion of the local volcanic rock. Keep your eyes peeled on the beach for the resident sea turtles that like to hang out on shore. You’ll be returned back to the Hilo Port in the afternoon.
