Cross Hilo Bay while standing on a paddleboard to catch breathtaking views of its surrounding landscape when you book this water adventure. Your tour includes a paddleboard rental, paddle, and life jacket to keep you safe as you explore the calm Hilo Bay waters on your own and see its majestic sites, including the Mauna Loa Crater, Hamakua Coast, and Liliuokalani Gardens.

With all the beautiful Hilo Bay attractions, this is the perfect tour to experience Hawaii from a different perspective.
Begin your serene water adventure by picking up your paddle boat rental from your meeting point across Reeds Bay Park. Once you get your paddleboard and gear, you'll head across the street to get easy access to the Bay and set sail as you stand and paddle to see the Hamakua coastline. Pass by the beautiful homes that dot the coastline and take in the breathtaking views of the rock gardens, teahouse and Edo-style Japanese Gardens of Liliuokalani Gardens. This historical garden was named after Hawaii's last queen and features the world's largest Japanese ornamental gardens beside the gardens of Japan.
Your tour also takes you to view the volcanic crater of Mauna Loa--the world's largest subaerial volcano. Head out to Mokuola--better known as Coconut Island--for a relaxing stop to enjoy snorkeling in the relaxing bay waters or enjoying a lunch you prepared. The island was a place of refuge for warriors and Hawaiian natives in ancient times as it was believed the island had healing powers. Enjoy relaxing on Coconut Island, soaking up the sun before heading back to Hilo to return your paddleboard and gear.
