    See the island’s most spectacular natural wonders on this 6 hour adventure by hiking 4.5 miles through Kilauea Iki Crater and visiting Rainbow Falls.


    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a meandering drive south into Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The terrain and natural diversity here are so extraordinary that UNESCO deemed the park both a World Biosphere site and a World Heritage site.


    A brief stop at the visitor center will provide an introduction to the park, after which you will begin a 4.5 mile hike into Kilauea Iki Crater. The volcano has been steadily erupting since 1983 and the surrounding countryside is extraordinarily dramatic. The rising steam caused by ground water seeping onto the hot volcanic rocks makes the setting all the more surreal and primeval. After the hike you will visit the dramatic Steam Vents area with its amazing view into the vast new crater formed by 2018 outflows of Lava. Water and granola bars are available at this point.


    After the return drive to Historic Hilo, you will pause for photos at magnificent 80ft Rainbow Falls, which is named for the Rainbows that often form in the surrounding mist. According to legend, the cave beneath the waterfall was the home of Hina, mother of the demigod Maui...Relaxed by falling water we will head to Downtown Hilo for Local favorite treats of Shave Ice and other delicacies as well as the rich variety of the Farmers Market with its flowers and local fruits. From here it is a short ride back to the ship in time for a late lunch and maybe a nap after your day’s exertion.

    Your exciting day begins with a scenic narrated drive along the beautiful Hamakua coastline from the cruise ship pier to the rain forest at Botanical World Adventures.


    Take an incredible journey by bike through an area of the Hamakua Coast once dominated by Hawai`i’s sugar industry. This adventurous tour makes its way through a segment of the Old Mamalahoa Highway where you are surrounded by green rolling pastures and lush botanical scenery. This once well traveled road takes us back in time as we make our way through old plantation villages, cross over bridges from the early 1900’s and become mesmerized by the abundance of greenery. View beautiful streams and waterfalls originating from the slopes of Mauna Kea as you cross over each bridge.


    This ride engages all of our senses with the smells and sounds of the rainforest, the sights of the brightly colored tropical flowers, and the tastes of paradise. Within the botanical gardens you are surrounded with an entourage of foliage from all over the world, as there are fruits in the trees above you, orchids blossoming beside you, and a carpet of grass below you. Before you know it, you are on a treasure hunt to find all the seasonal jewels and gems this amazing botanical garden has to offer. The guides will then transport you by van to their private waterfall on the property for one last amazing photo opportunity!


    The experience continues as you journey back to the pier with a stop at Low Store, a family owned treasure since 1925 where you can purchase tropical smoothies and Hawaiian shaved ice. Then continue on the incredible scenic route of Onomea Bay to make a final stop at Big Island Candies, famous for their handmade macadamia nut shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate!
