Big Island Tours & Activities
Hawaii Tours from Hilo or Kona Hawaii
The best things to do on the Big Island?
From family-friendly activities to luxury tours, you will find fun activities from Kona to Hilo and everywhere in between. As the name suggests, the island of Hawaii – known as The Big Island – is the largest of the Hawaiian chain. Home to two active volcanoes, lush rainforests, and incredible beaches, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Where you are staying on the Big Island will depend on what tours are available. Located on opposite sides of the island, Hilo is wetter with tropical rainforests and huge waterfalls where Kona is much drier, making for wonderfully warm, sunny days. Book an adventure snorkeling (with manta rays), attend a luau, or watch the sunset and go stargazing. All are amazing experiences here!
Perhaps you will want to take a full circle tour of the island and visit some of our favorite spots, including the Waipi’o Valley, the Kona coast, views of Mauna Kea, and black sand beaches. Or choose individual tours to Volcano National Park or our famous Kona coffee farms and a winery.
We are here to help you uncover all there is to see and do on the Big Island. We know the best companies to choose from for land, sea, and air tours, to luaus, volcanos, and neighbor island excursions that will bring you and your family stories to cherish for years to come!
The best tours on Big Island tend to be things you can’t do as well on the other islands like visiting an active volcano, going snorkeling with manta rays and enjoying clear Hawaiian night skies way up on a mountain.

Seeing any of the Hawaiian Islands from the air is an amazing experience, but a helicopter tour of the Big Island is more worthwhile than anywhere else. The island is so extensive that it can take several days just to get an idea of where to go. By kicking off the trip with an air tour, you’ll get an invaluable overview of the entire island, learning all you need to know about where to go and what to do. That’s why we recommend doing an air tour early-on in your trip to grasp just how big the Big Island really is!
