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.

Volcano National Park
March 14, 2023
Great day exploring Volcanoes National Park with Volcano Bill. It was a rainy day in Hilo Hawaii. Viewed Kilauea, one of the two largest volcanoes in the world. Walked through a lava tube and rain forest. Went to the very active Rainbow Falls and then to the beautiful Lili’uokalani Japanese Gardens. A great day.

Everything I wanted
February 27, 2023
This excursion was everything I wanted to do. The guide was informative but not boring. I feel like we got to do more because it was on a smaller bus. We had more than enough time to enjoy our stops, and Kelvin did his best to make sure we had the best experience possible. I highly recommend this excursion.

Our tour guide Maggie was great. Very informative and open to all questions. Her energy level was high and she infused us with it. She gave us plenty of time at all the stops. The tour covered many spot which was just what we wanted. This was our first tour of our cruise, and she set the bar high for all other tours. Thank you Maggie.

incredible excursion
February 26, 2023
We initially booked this excursion because the similar excursion on the ship was full. Our tour was so much better than we could have hoped for The guide/bus driver was very knowledgable and showed us so much more than we expected to see. It was much better than any of the other excursions we had on our trip.
