Discover four of Hilo's favorite attractions, beginning with the Lyman Museum & Mission House. This beautiful, gently senescent missionary home contains a fabulous collection of historic Hawaiian relics.

Head to Rainbow Falls to view one of the Big Island's loveliest sights--a cascade that usually makes its own rainbow.

At the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory, you'll have time to visit the gift shop and snack bar. Most visitors find that every macadamia nut offered is a mandatory visit to the dark side of caloric seduction.

Finally, see the breathtaking Akaka Falls--the longest unbroken waterfall in the state--plunging 442 feet over a volcanic cliff. Walk along the one-mile natural pathway through lush tropical forest to view the falls before returning to the ship.


Wear comfortable walking shoes. The Lyman Museum is closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Tour does not operate on Sundays.
