Departs from Hilo

The Hamakua Coast is one of the most beautiful regions in all of Hawaii. More than 80 inches of rainfall every year brings forth extraordinarily lush rainforests, breathtaking waterfalls, and serene green valleys. You’ll experience it all on this thrilling new Blue Hawaiian tour, but your expert pilot—a State of Hawaii Certified Tour Guide—will also reveal the historic side of the area’s stunning beauty, along with the Big Island’s myths, legends, and creation story. Indeed, the tour from Hilo encompasses much of the "Hamakua Heritage Corridor," including Lover’s Rock, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, World Botanical Gardens, Laupahoehoe and its famous Train Museum, and much more. Emphasis will also be on the phenomenal palette of spectacular waterfalls: Onemea Falls, Kaiwiki Falls, Upper Falls, and the legendary 442-foot Akaka Falls—also known as wailele (leaping waters). Don’t miss this magnificent exploration of the heart of Hawaii.
