Hawaii is home to a variety of unique geological features, and the Big Island of Hawaii is no exception. One of the most popular attractions is the lava tubes. These ancient caves were formed by when lava cools and forms a solid crust. Sea caves are another must-see stop on the big island. These caverns were carved out by waves crashing against the cliffs, and they are truly a sight to behold. Many of the sea caves are only accessible by boat and on this tour, you will have the opportunity to see Sea caves at the base of Hualalai.
