Discover the island’s diverse natural beauty, including lush rain forests and rugged sea cliffs as your guide shares history and legends.

 

Heading into the Waipio Valley, switch to a 4WD van to traverse shallow river streams and pass by taro fields surrounded by native flora and fauna, marvelling at Hawaii Island’s tallest waterfall, Hi’ilawe Falls. Then, admire the rugged sea cliffs as you head back to Waipio Valley lookout for the stunning views as you enjoy a picnic-style lunch.

 

With full bellies, the tour continues the drive down the scenic Hamakua Coast. Walk through a rainforest and discover the towering Akaka Falls that plummets 442-foot (135-meter) into a stream-eroded gorge. Then, if the weather permits, you will get to swim under Kulaniapia private waterfall to cool down and relax. This 60-foot private waterfall can be seen in several Hollywood movies. 

 

In Hilo, you will visit the famous Rainbow Falls. It's a beautiful 80-foot (24-meter) waterfall with a giant banyan tree beside it. You'll also get the chance to descend into the ancient Kaumana lava cave to learn more about the volcanic processes that continue to shape the Big Island.

 

Big Island Grand Circle – Waterfalls, Turtles & Volcanoes

 

This full-day nature tour offers an in-depth look at Hawaii’s youngest and largest island. From desert to rainforest, pasture to dry forest, discover diverse landscapes and 8 out of 13 climate zones in the world. Explore the active volcanoes of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, walk through rainforests to cascading waterfalls, and stroll black-sand beaches, scanning the horizon for green sea turtles.

 

You will first stop of the day is at a Kona Coffee Farm to walk through the orchards while sampling a warm cup of Kona-grown coffee. See views of South Point, the southernmost point of the United States, and Kealakekua Bay before stopping at Punalu’u Bakery for some famous Hawaiian malasadas.

 

From there, you will have time to relax and take it all in at Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, a great place to spot marine life from the shore. Then, the adventure continues with exploring the wonders of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, where you'll learn how the island was formed. See steam vents, past lava flow sites, the Halema’uma’u and Kilauea Iki crater lookouts, and take a short hike through the 600-foot-long Thurston Lava Tube formed hundreds of years ago, followed by a picnic lunch. 

 

The rest of the afternoon is filled with visits to some of the most majestic waterfalls on the Big Island. First is, Akaka Falls, a 442-foot (135-meter) waterfall that plummets into a lush ravine. The second waterfall is small by comparison but not by beauty: Rainbow Falls is a stunning 80-foot (24-meter) waterfall with a giant banyan tree beside it.

 

Finally, continuing on the drive along the Hamakua Coast, more postcard-worthy views will pass by your window, ushering you to the next destination.

The bigger the boat, the more stable it is. The catamaran vessel is 65’ in length with 30’ beam and is the largest boat of our kind. It’s total different experience than being on a smaller boat or raft.
