Hawaii Tropical Botanic Gardens
Explore the magnificent Botanic Gardens, located north of Hilo on the Hamakua Coast. You will have 1½ - 2 hours to stroll on your own through a slice of tropical rain forest, complete with orchids, heliconias, ginger, waterfalls, a fern garden, exotic birds and ocean shoreline. The more than 2,000 different species of plants are all labeled, including a very large display of orchids. Umbrellas will be provided in case of rain. En route back to the ship, relax on a guided panoramic mini-tour of Hilo’s Old Town.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Not suitable for guests using a wheelchair.
