Best of Big Island and Volcanoes National Park

Join us on this magnificent Volcanoes National Park tour. This tour highlights some of the Big Island's most precious gems, such as rainforest waterfalls, black sand beaches, craters, lava tubes, and much more!

The first stop is at the Richardson Black Sand Beach, where sea turtles are usually spotted. The Black Sand Beach is a local favorite and is a great way to see how the ocean and volcanoes make fine black sand.

Next, you will pass through the historic town of Hilo and stop by a breathtaking 80 ft waterfall, Rainbow Falls. Once you leave Rainbow Falls, you will head over to the Liliuokalani Japanese Garden, where you will enjoy the pleasant scenery and trails.

Your next stop will be Big Island Candies, which was established in 1977. Big Island Candies manufactures and markets fine quality macadamia nut candies and cookies, using 100 percent Hawaii-grown macadamia nuts, Kona coffee, island eggs, real butter and high-grade chocolate. Since its founding, Big Island Candies has continuously introduced new and imaginative products that "wow" both the eyes and taste buds of its growing legion of fans.

You will then make your way to the summit of Kilauea volcano at the Volcanoes National Park, the most highly regarded and revered volcanic area on Earth. The park dramatically displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution - processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with unique ecosystems, and a distinct human culture. The park highlights two of the world's most active volcanoes, Kilauea and Mauna Loa, and offers insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and views of dramatic volcanic landscapes.

At the park, you will stop at the Visitor Center, see the highly acclaimed Jaggar Museum, and witness the spectacular Thurston Lava Tube, steam vents, sulfur banks, and fascinating scenic lookouts. No trip to Hawaii is complete without a trip to Volcanoes National Park.

Kilauea was on my bucket list and we were fortunate to have Kelvin be our tour guide to the volcano site and other highlights of the island! He is a local Hawaiian and his extensive first hand knowledge and love of his heritage were shared throughout the tour. Kelvin was one of the best guides we’ve ever had!

Hello, There was no problem finding the excursion as it was clearly marked when we were in the terminal. The only problem was getting on the proper bus and since we were the last ones, we were seated 5 across on the back seat, so was a bit crowded and we got off and on several times. Would have been better to be 4 across instead of the 5. Once we were on the right bus everything went smoothly. We enjoyed all the stops and the highlight for me was seeing the active crater! That was amazing! The Black sand beach and the Rainbow waterfalls were very beautiful! Would recommend this tour to anyone as it was well worth the money we paid! Thank you!

This Tour was Amazing. Our guide Armond was great, he got off every stop with us and explained how thing came to be and the Hawaiian's beliefs. Seeing the Crater and walking through the Thurston Lava Tube is something you have to try once in your lifetime. Thank you Armond for your knowledge and kindness.
