A Hawaii vacation can be greatly enhanced with a tour by sea.


Norwegian Cruise Lines - Pride of America Cruise Ship:

Sightseeing Boat tours on the Big Island will not pick up directly at the cruise boat pier but these excursions can often simply be reached by taxi or they can be reached via a Rent-A-Car that can be arranged through Tom Barefoot's Tours and you can be picked up by the Rent-A-Car shuttles right at the cruise ship dock. Dependent upon the individual tour these are generally available on the Tuesday when you dock in Hilo or on the Wednesday when you dock in Kona.

Look for this symbol in the tour descriptions below to indicate if it is Pride of America compatible.
