Full description
Enjoy a fully narrated adventure that starts with a stop at a Kona Coffee Farm. Walk through a lava tube and the orchards with your guide to learn about the harvesting and milling process while sampling a warm cup of Kona-grown coffee. Continue the leisurely drive and pass the scenic view of the Kealakekua Bay and South Point, the southernmost point of the United State, then relax and take it all in at Punalu’u Black Sand Beach, a great place to spot marine life from the shore, like Hawaii’s green sea turtles. In the afternoon, visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with a trip around the Chain of Craters Road, for the “mountain to sea” experience. Various stops are made to view magnificent volcanic eruption, and flow sites of the past, the beautiful park coastline, and the remarkable Holei Sea Arch. In addition, your certified tour guide provides educational and insightful narrative about the volcanoes as you visit Kilauea Iki Lookout, steam vents, Halema’uma’u Crater, and crater rim trail. After enjoying a sit-down dinner at a local café near the park, your guide will take you to a secluded and ideal location for stargazing. Depending on weather conditions, you will observe stars, planets, galaxies, and more.

We took an eleven hour tour where we got to see a coffee farm and tried some samples. We had lunch at the southernmost bakery of the US and saw a black sand beach where turtles were swimming in the sea. We even visited the volcanoes National Park and looked right into the crater of a volcano and took several photo stops. The great day ended with a very good dinner and stargazing out on the fields. Our guide Ehitu had a lot of interesting Information to tell and shared fascinating stories about the Hawaiian culture. He was so kind and it was such a pleasure just listening to him. He also always drove the van safely. It was a perfect day for us and even if we were really tired when we got back to the hotel we would absolutely do it again

The star gazing would have been better through a telescope on the summit. clouds prevented a good view. 12 hours could be reduced to no more than 9 or 10 hours.

Covers many parts of the island... Derek (our guide) was knowledgeable & savvy in taking us around different parts of the national park to see / do what was most convenient with the weather. Really enjoyed it.
