Unique to Hawai’i, the Big Island is where you can visit an active volcano and witness the birth of new land. This popular adventure begins before lunch, visiting and exploring amazingly beautiful and historic sites along the way. Let us show you where the western world made contact and changed life in Hawai’i forever. Take a trip back in time to understand the rituals and way of life of the ancient Hawaiians. Afterward, we explore as much of Kilauea Volcano as we can and get as close to the enormous Kilauea Caldera as possible. No one gets you closer. All in the comfort of our air-conditioned, full-sized SUV and with your very own certified interpretive guide. End your day with a dining experience just a few miles from the caldera followed by brief stargazing (weather permitting) before a relaxing drive home. Not to be missed.
