Lava Boat Tour

Tuesday, September 15th, 2009

The Lava Boat Tour offers a great way to get to see lava without having to pay for a helicopter tour or having to take a hike.  Although those are the two most popular ways to view the lava, at times they do not suite peoples needs.

On the lava boat tour, you will take a “ferry style”  24 passenger boat from a town near Hilo called Pahoa along the volcanic coastline to Volcano National Park.

Along this tour you will have the opportunity to enjoy the waters off of the coast of the Big Island of Hawaii along with getting to see lava up close (as close as 20 yards).

My recommendations is spend the day enjoying Volcano National Park and then take the sunset tour.  The Big Island is well known for the volcano and you can easily spend a day taking everything in.

The tour is approximately 2-2.5 hours in duration.

Cost
Adult: $180
Children: $125

Big Island of Hawaii Snorkeling Tours

Friday, September 4th, 2009

The Big Island of Hawaii offers some of the best snorkeling in the world.  The waters of the entire Kohala Coast are filled with tropical fish, sea turtles, and much more.  While you can snorkel just off the beaches, you can not get the full experience unless you take one of the snorkeling tours.

Ocean Sports is the most convenient company, which offers tours that depart from A’Bay at Waikoloa Beach Resort, which is within walking distance from most vacation rentals in the Waikoloa Beach Resort.

Kealekekua Bay offers the best location for snorkeling in the area.  Kealekekua Bay is located in Captain Cook where the Big Island of Hawaii was first discovered.  Kealekekua Bay is one of the largest bays on the island and is a marine sanctuary.  There is an abundance of tropical fish and at times a pod of spinner dolphins will stop by.  Not only does Kealekekua Bay offer wonderful snorkeling, but the scenery is also amazing.

Body Glove and Captain Zodiac offer snorkeling tours to Kealekekua Bay.

Please contact us at (808) 987-4519 or waikoloavrm@aol.com to help you arrange your snorkeling tour.
