Arriving on your cruise ship at the port of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii will be one of the most exciting port locations you will have on your entire cruise. The main reason for this has to do with Hilo's proximity to the active volcano of Kilauea on the slope of Mauna Loa. This volcano has been continuously active since 1975 and it is one of the only place in the world that you can be assured to see a volcano in its active phase when you arrive on your travels. There are many ways to see the volcano: by helicopter, by flight seeing airplane, by bicycle, by hiking or in a touring van. Each method has its more positive aspects but the most important point is to make sure that you see the volcano one way or another when you have traveled so far to get here.
We have listed here on this page a number of tours that are compatible with the arrival and departure schedules of the cruise boats. We have listed the best timing during your cruise boat stay to take the tours and the most convenient ways to get to the tours. It is important to know that it is important to book these tours early because many are often completely "booked-out" with cruise boat passengers when the ships come into port. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding any of these tours and we will do our best to assist you in any way we can.
