This program, with a maximum of 12 guests, begins with your pick up at the Hilo cruise pier. Departing the harbor, you will drive through the historic town of Hilo as you begin the approximately 50-minute drive to the Volcanoes National Park.

One of the most popular sites on the Big Island, Volcanoes National Park is famous for its unique landscape and ongoing volcanic activity. Here you will see the dramatic geologic changes that took place during the 2018 eruption.Once inside the park, the first stop is to see the Halema'uma'u Crater, which is located within the larger caldera of Kilauea Volcano.

You will have the opportunity to gaze down into large, once active crater of Kilauea and view the frozen black lava landscape. Chances are you will also see steaming vents and smell the sulfur banks coming from the depths of the earth. One of the highlights of the day will be looking at the sacred home (Halema'uma'u Crater) of Pele, goddess of the volcano.

You will then walk over rolling terrain in a rainforest to reach the cave-like Thurston Lava Tube. Once an underground conduit for molten lava, your approximately half a mile walk through the tube will reveal some of the many incredible characteristics of the lava. As you drive through the park, you will see other interesting lava formations as well.

Avoiding the crowds, your guide will take you to other spots in the park where you can have a more in-depth understanding of volcanoes.

No visit to the big island would be complete without sampling the locally grown macadamia nuts and chocolate. A 40-minute drive brings you to a wonderful stop where you will have the opportunity to sample homemade chocolate, locally grown nuts, and Kona coffee.

After a 20 minute drive, a photo stop will be made at Richardson Black Sand Beach where sea turtles may be spotted. The pounding surf on the islands black lava creates this dark unique beach. You will also make a photo stop at Liliuokalani Japanese Gardens for the view of Hilo Bay and Mokuola (Coconut Island - a tiny island covered in coconut palms just off the shore).

Nearby is the breathtaking Rainbow Falls, an 80 ft plunge in a tropical setting over a lava cave, just outside of town. After a break to take photos of the falls, you will be driven back to Hilo and your cruise pier.

Please note that there will be a stop around mid-day for picnic lunch that is provided - bottled water is also included.

The local operator closely monitors the volcanic activity and your safety is top priority. Please be assured they only operate in areas deemed safe by the national park and local country government. Volcanic activity changes frequently and they reserve the right to adjust or cancel excursions to ensure the safety of all guest. The listed itinerary is subject to change as the public access is allowed. There is no guarantee guests will see active lava.

Me and my family had a blast, the landscapings you get to see are just WOW!! The only mistake I made was not wearing comfortable walking shoes, there is a lot of walking but time goes by so fast when you are enjoying what you are doing... The snack provided can be improved.
