Join this exploration of Hilo’s famous waterfalls, Pana'ewa Zoo and Gardens, and black-sand Punalu'u Beach with a deli-style picnic lunch.
At Hilo Coffee Mill, tour the farm and learn about the process of making some of the richest coffee in the world.
Next up is the Pana'ewa Zoo and Gardens, situated on 12 acres within the Pana‘ewa Forest. The zoo was completed in 1978, currently houses almost 200 animals, and receives approximately 125 inches of rain a year.
Picturesque Punalu’u Beach is lined with swaying coconut palm trees and is one of the best black-sand beaches on the island. Stroll along the beach to look for honu (green sea turtles) feeding just offshore or sun-worshipping on the sand.
In quaint Hilo town, you’ll drive along the historical waterfront to the Boiling Pots. Impressive photo opportunities are often found here when the river "boils" up through depressions in the rocks.
You will follow the Wailuku River to Rainbow Falls. This iconic waterfall features an 80-foot twin waterfall system. Look for the rainbow effect that gives the waterfall its name.
There's time to shop for macadamia nuts, local crafts and products, Kona coffee and more on your way back to the port.
