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.

Very informative videos of the volcano eruptions while driving to the Volcano National Park. But the best part was the walk through the lava tube!

Extremely Happy and impressed with your Company. We were greeted at the Pier by the Driver/Guide holding the Tour Sign. I hope I got it right with his name (Edmond or Redmond). He was confident and explained the Tour / Rules for a satisfactory Tour in the allowed time. We were very happy and currently have another cruised broked on the Emerald Princesss on January 2, 2023 for a 15 day (Ocean to Ocean). We looked up the stops and are picking the excursions we want using your service.
