    Kia Ora,

    I’m very interested in the Castaway Snorkle and Dive adventure, I have had no experience in scuba diving, but I am very keen to learn and wish to experience everything offered in this trip…Will my lack of experience in scuba diving stop me from enjoying the trip being offered?

    Aloha Kia Ora,

    Our Castaway Cruise to explore hidden Hawaii beaches deep inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a Hilo attraction second to none. Whether your a seasoned SCUBA Diver, a first time snorkeler or a beachcomber this combo tour combines the best Hilo ocean activities while featuring many aspects that are only experienced on the south east coast of the Big Island due the history of active volcanoes Kilauea and Mauna Loa. Hawaii Volcano Tours are a great way to witness first hand the active Kilauea eruption as well as see the aftermath from recent ocean entry lava flows.

    Hi, I am very interesting in sunset lava tour and would like to make a reservation , however, my flight will be arrived around 230 pm in Kona airport on Friday. Do you think I can make it on Friday evering or you will suggest that I take the sunset lava tour on Sat. ? If I make a reservation for Fri. and I can’t make it, is there any alternative way to push my tour to Sat.? Thanks.

    We do not operate on Saturdays and its a 2 1/2 hour drive to make our departure time at 5PM you’d be pushing it. We have a tour on Sunday at 5PM that I think is best for you.

    Hi Shane,

    Do I take it that there is no pick up service from hotel. We will be staying at Kona Resorts near Kona Airport.

    No were almost 2.5 hours each way from Kona it makes more sense to rent a care then pay the all day expense of a tour guide or driver
