Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your journey begins as you board your air-conditioned van and set out to discovery the duality of the Volcano Goddess, Pele, on this tour highlighting the beauty of Puna.

Learn how volcanoes like Kilauea can both destroy and create, a phenomenon spectacularly on display in the lower east rift zone that experienced the 2014 and 2018 eruptions firsthand. See the island's newest black sand beach and learn the story behind its creation. Along the way, stop at one of Puna's most iconic landmarks, the Painted Church.

Finish your tour with a shopping stop in Hilo to sample and purchase local goods before returning to the pier.
