Enjoy the best of the Big Island through easy interpretive nature walks, from volcanic landscapes to waterfalls. Your small-group tour begins with a trip along the lush Onomea Bay Scenic Drive to the famous Akaka Falls. View this breathtaking 440-foot waterfall set among the beautiful valleys of Hawaii's Hamakua Coast. See Rainbow Falls -- a cascading 80-foot waterfall right in the heart of Hilo.
Continue your journey down the southern part of the island to enter Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. With your ranger-trained guide, you will stop by the Kilauea Visitor Center to browse among the informative displays and park information. Your guide will reveal the park’s highlights as you learn about the active volcanic craters, sulfur banks and steam vents.
Finish up your Big Island exploration with a brief stop for shopping on Banyan Drive. A picnic-style lunch is included along the way.
Participants must be able to negotiate stairs to view Akaka Falls. While this is not a hiking tour, please be aware that the longest nature walk is about a half mile each way. Guests with a heart condition are not allowed to participate. Children 7 years and under require a car seat, per Hawaii state law; the tour operator can supply a child safety or booster seat at no charge with advance notice to the Shore Excursions office on board.
