NEW! Pele's Creation
Departs from Hilo

Pele, the Hawaiian volcano deity is said to embody the lava and natural forces of the volcano. She has made her home on Hawaii Island (the Big Island) and continues to make her majesty known from mountain to sea. Embark on a breathtaking adventure seeking out the island’s unique and newly formed landscapes. Get your camera ready as you come upon Kilauea’s Iki Crater and Hale Ma’uma’u Volcano Crater. As one of the most active volcanoes on earth, and considered to still be active, view several steam vents and the ever-changing landscape. Next, as weather permits, we tour over to the Mauna Loa (meaning ‘Long Mountain’ in Hawaiian). Mauna Loa has historically been considered the largest volcano on earth sitting over 13 thousand feet above sea level with it’s base going 5-miles into the ocean floor. This enormous volcano covers half of the Island of Hawaii. View the remnants of the last eruption which occurred in November 2022.
