On your day in port in Hilo, explore two of the Big Island’s most spectacular sites on a shore excursion. First, discover Hawaii’s scenic Rainbow Falls amid the lush foliage of Wailuku River State Park. Then head to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, and ascend from sea level to the 13,667-foot (4,165-meter) summit of Mauna Loa, one of the world’s largest volcanoes. This Hilo shore excursion allows you to enjoy the best of Hawaii’s natural beauty - from active volcanoes to cool waterfalls.

Start your day in port on the Big Island of Hawaii at Wailuku River State Park, where you’ll see Rainbow Falls. This 80-foot (24-meter) waterfall drops over a natural lava cave. Legend says the lava cave was the mythological home to Hina, an ancient Hawaiian goddess. On sunny mornings, you can see rainbows in the mist over the waterfalls and get a taste of tropical forest wonder.

Your Hilo shore excursion continues to Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Factory, where you’ll get a special tour of Mauna Loa’s nut and chocolate processing plant and watch the nut-husking and drying process. Learn how a macadamia nut is grown and processed, and be sure to try a few samples of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts!

Continue to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, one of the Big Island’s most popular attractions. The park is home to two of the world’s most active volcanoes – Mauna Loa and Kīlauea.

Walk through the Thurston Lava Tube, where a river of red lava rushed through hundreds of years ago. Get up close to the enormous Halemanumau Crater, which measures 3,000 feet (915 meters) across and 280 feet (85 meters) deep, and watch it come alive with hisses and steams. Stop by Jagger Museum to learn more about Kīlauea, and then step outside on the overlook to get a fantastic view of the crater.

Finish your day at the Akatsuka Orchid Nursery. Step inside a colorful and fragrant paradise of orchids, and learn about the different orchids and tropical flowers native to Hawaii.

While you’re in port in Kona, get a taste of Big Island history and culture on this shore excursion. Learn about the history of Kona at Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park – an ancient Hawaiian place of refuge for law breakers. Visit Saint Benedict’s Painted Church, where Belgian-born priest Father Velghe painted colorful biblical scenes on the walls of the church. Finish your day at Royal Kona Coffee and sample a delicious Kona cup of joe.

The Big Island isn’t only breathtaking scenery and beaches – it also has a history and culture just waiting to be explored on a shore excursion. On this historical and cultural tour of Kona, you’ll take a step back in time to Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, which translates to “Place of Refuge at Honaunau.” In ancient Hawaii, residents who broke Hawaii’s system of kapu (law) would receive death as punishment. The only option for survival would be to escape to the nearest puuhonua, or place of refuge.

Today, you can experience the peace of Puuhonua o Honoaunau National Historical Park, where ancient temples and ki’i (carved wooden images) hint at stories from the past. Stroll around this palm-covered sanctuary and enjoy the view of Honaunau Bay.

Continue your historical journey to St. Benedict’s Painted Church, where Belgian-born Father Velghe’s three-dimensional paintings depict heroes from the Bible. This artwork served as an important teaching tool in a time when many people couldn’t read and write. Father Velghe painted this church in 1842, and this parish continues the work Father Velghe began more than a century ago.

Finish your shore excursion at the Royal Kona Coffee Visitor Center, where you’ll see how coffee “cherries” are processed into delicious Royal Kona coffee. Enjoy the view of Kealakekua Bay in the distance and savor a sample of Kona coffee.
