There are so many outstanding adventures you can have, especially when you choose some of the fascinating Kona adventure tours to take you to some of the top places. From up close encounters with beautiful manta rays to flying high over an active volcano, to the sight of lush green rain forests, adventurers love spending time on this scenic and historic island.
Manta Ray Tours are Simply Awe Inspiring
Swimming with manta rays might not be something you’ve ever thought about doing, but when you’re looking into things to do on Big Island experiences, it comes to the top of the list. When you embark on Big Island manta ray tours, you might feel a bit excited and feel heart palpitations. This is completely expected. What you’re about to do is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
From the moment you go over the edge of your boat, you’re immersed in an underwater wonderland. Manta rays come incredibly close to you as you watch them through your snorkel mask. The board you’re using is lighted, which attracts plankton, and in turn that attracts the manta rays as they search for food. Sometimes affectionately called butterflies of the sea, manta rays are gentle and gigantic. They’re fascinating to watch. On most Big Island manta ray tours, you’ll have about an hour to spend being inspired by these beautiful creatures.
Helicopter Tours of Volcano Sites
Choosing to take a helicopter tour to see the active Kilaeua volcano is a must-do venture when you’re looking over your list of Big Island attractions. Watching fiery lava or even steam rising as hot molten lava meets the cool ocean waters is fascinating and inspiring. The sheer greatness of nature is overwhelmingly beautiful to watch. There are plenty of Kona adventure tours to inspire everyone!
One thing you should do on land is to check out Volcanoes National Park and stop first at the Kilauea Visitor Center. There you’ll find all the latest information about the safest places to hike and where lava is currently flowing. Another fascinating experience is the Jaggar Museum where you’ll learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about volcanoes, how seismographs work, and you’ll even see volcanologist protective suits that are worn when scientists venture up close to the volcano.
National Parks are Entertaining and Educational
National parks are high on the list of things to do on Big Island adventures. One park to check out is the Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historic Park. This park is where lawbreakers were once sent to have their actions forgiven by priests. It’s also a place featuring fascinating wood carvings or “ki’i”, incredible temples and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles.
Kealakekua Bay is recommended for snorkelers and for those who wish to see Spinner Dolphins and sea turtles. Tropical fish are mesmerizing to watch as you enjoy a snorkeling adventure in the blue-green water. People who are fascinated by history will be excited to learn that Kealakekua Bay is where explorer Captain James Cook landed and stayed until tense times developed with the locals and he was killed on the bay. Punalu’u Black Sand Beach is another amazing site to check out.
Spend a Day Exploring in Kona
One of the Big Island attractions you don’t want to miss is a visit to Kona. You’ll love browsing through quaint shops and enjoying a meal at your choice of restaurants or cafes. Kona town at one time was a getaway spot for Hawaiian royalty, and that sense of history is still reflected in the town. Visiting Mokuaikaua Church and Hulihee Palace provide fun ways to spend an afternoon. At night, you can enjoy authentic Hawaiian music and entertainment.
Near Kona you can browse in farmers markets, take a coffee tour or stop at a local brew pub. A bit south of Kona you’ll find The Kau Coffee Mill, which is a fascinating stop featuring a visitors center and a retail store where you can shop for coffee and macadamia nuts. Learn all about the ideal island geographical and weather conditions for producing Kona coffee.
A Cave Spelunking Adventure
Another adventure that is well worth taking on the Big Island is a cave and lava tube cavern exploring experience at the Kilauea Caverns of Fire. This is a trek that ranges from safe and easy to long and adventurous. This lava tube is part of the Kazamura Lava Tube system, and it is ranked among the deepest and longest lava tubes worldwide.
This is a natural wonder among geographical explorers and has been featured by National Geographic. You’ll trek through caverns seeing the different colors of lava and breathtaking formations that could have only been created by nature. No matter what Big Island attractions you choose to visit, your stay on the Big Island of Hawaii will long be remembered as a captivating, mystical adventure of a lifetime.
