Experience the beauty, uniqueness, and magic of this area
You will experience the beauty & magic of this side/part of the Big Island, why it unique in the Hawaiian chain, and why I have chosen to live here. You will learn a lot about Hawaiian history, culture, the language, trees, fruits, flowers, birds, animals, and more. There will be many great photo ops. It will be a very educational, informative, interesting, fun, and memorable tour that you will remember & cherish the rest of your life.
As you'll see in the 6 hr tour, it starts in Hilo with the choices there and then moves either South to the Puna District and/or the Volcano Nation Park or up the Hamakua Coast and on to Waimea town in the Parker Ranch. Swimming and/or snorkeling is an option for those that enjoy that. The additional 2 hours is to extend either the distance covered, things seen & done, or just to spend a more time at the places and activities you enjoy the most.

Meeting location: I'll pick you up where ever you're at in the Hilo area, i.e. the Cruise Ship dock, your hotel, the airport or on out to the Pahoa/Puna District area where I live.
