Explore cascading waterfalls, craters, and the tsunami-stricken city of Hilo on this comprehensive volcano adventure tour. Bear witness to the 2018 eruption that drastically altered the island’s landscape. Peer into the depths of Halemaumau Crater which has remarkably doubled in size and watch steam clouds form as ground water seeps onto hot volcanic rock at the famous Steam Vents.

Enjoy an included picnic lunch at off-shore Coconut Island. Marvel at not one by two spectacular waterfalls – Rainbow and Akaka Falls. Gaze at sweeping coastal views at Kealakomo Overlook where older lava flows melted into the ocean. Stroll barren Devastation Trail to see evidence of Kilauea’s eruption in 1959 and drive down scenic Chain of Craters Road.

Captain Rob did a stellar job taking us from Hilo all the way up to the Volcanos. He was filled with an immense amount of knowledge (more than I even expected to learn) and showed us some amazing things that we probably would’ve missed if we decided to do this by ourselves!!

Great trip!

Worth the 45 min drive in a comfortable bus to view Kilauea crater in Volcano National Park. Lots of interesting information from the tour guide. Really enjoyed the day
