Start your day in port on the Big Island of Hawaii at Wailuku River State Park, where youll 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 youll get a special tour of Mauna Loas 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 Islands most popular attractions. The park is home to two of the worlds 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.
