"Go with the flow!" is the mantra on Hawaii, where the local people are used to daily volcanic eruptions as Pele (the volcano goddess) demonstrates the raw power of nature. Volcanoes such as Kilauea can both destroy and create -- a plurality that is spectacularly on display in the lower east rift zone of the Big Island. Here, the 2014 and 2018 eruptions created the island's newest black-sand beach.
You'll also stop at one of Puna's most iconic landmarks, the Painted Church.
Enjoy a shopping stop in charming downtown Hilo to sample and purchase local goods before returning to the pier.
