Kalapana Lava Boat Tours
Due to no flowing lava the lava viewing tours are not currently running. However, Kalapana Lava Boat Tours also offers whale (in season) and waterfall boat tours on the Hilo side of the Big Island of Hawaii.
Specializing in exciting, memorable ocean adventures, Kalapana Lava Boat is a humble and homegrown tour company that promises comfort and plenty of aloha. They offer a variety of boat tours, departing from Hilo Hawaii. The tours available depend on the current conditions of the volcano, seasonality of ocean visitors such as whales, and even include a tour to see dolphins and waterfalls.
When lava is flowing, their lava viewing tours are offered throughout the day, including twilight and sunset experiences, you and your family will have plenty of opportunities for photography as you explore and take in the awe and wonder of creation itself. Throughout your tour, your guides will explain the history of volcanic activity on the Big Island as well as ancient Hawaiians’ relationship with these sacred volcanoes. With the highest degree of respect for the land and the sea, a tour with Kalapana Lava Boat and their crew offers a fascinating educational opportunity for visitors and residents of the Big Island alike.
A locally-owned and operated boat tour company, Kalapana Lava Boat makes perfect sense for small groups and families seeking adventure along the Big Island’s eastern shores. With multiple tours offered throughout each day, this 45-foot Double Hull Vessel offers unprecedented views aboard a large, modern craft. The waters on the eastern side of the Big Island can be choppy so you should read the water safety and health information on their website.
