Hawaii, the Big Island

Curated Activities – The Best of Hawaii (the island!)

Volcano, Lava Field and Stars

The Big Island is the biggest Hawaii’in island and this is a day tour to match. Learn local history as you look for sea turtles. Bring layers because you will be going to a lava field a few thousand feet high. Morning it’s 80, evening it’s 46! Just in time for twilight stargazing. Lunch and dinner included. – by Viator

Guaranteed Manta Rays

Mantas feed at sunset and beyond, and this sunset cruise to their feeding grounds is a must. Your expert boat crew knows where the mantas feed after dark, but if you somehow don’t see any, you get a free tour on another night! You’ll be fitted with gear and hang on a platform with your face in the water for as long as you care to. Bring warm/dry clothes for your return on board. – by Viator

Kona Coast Snorkeling

From South Kona you will head out to a little-known cove for some world class snorkeling. Once underway, expect a great safety briefing (with optional scuba for those who are qualified). An excellent breakfast buffet and bbq lunch await. You might also get lucky and see an underwater lava flow during your day tour. – by Viator

Volcanoes and Kona Coffee

Delectable Kona coffee right at a coffee plantation starts your day right, plus a few Hawaiian pastries. Carry on to the black sand beach at Panalu’u . Then you will hike through a lava tube at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. This is a nature day focused on ecosystems but far from dull. – by Viator

Kohala Coast Helicopter Ride

See Kilauea Volcano from above as well as viewing dense jungles and glimmering beaches. Enjoy a great helicopter ride over the Big Island. – by Viator

There is magic on the Big Island of Hawaii. The night sky is so clear, you can’t help but feel closer to heaven itself.”  – John Romano
