Tour & Activity Categories on "The Big Island" of Hawaii
The Big Island of Hawaii is the island chain's largest and newest
island. The Big Island in fact is so large you could fit the land
area of all the other islands combined into the land area of the Big
Island and still have room to spare. As if it's not big enough
already it continues to expand with each passing day as it is fueled
from deep within the earth below with the power of a volcanic thrust
that brings its magma from below the earth's surface and provides
spectacular daily displays of it fiery growth on the surface. The Big
Island is mostly formed by its two enormous volcanoes known as Mauna
Kea and Mauna Loa which both exceed 13,000' in height making them, if measured from the base of the sea floor, the largest mountains in the world. The busiest volcano on the island in modern times is however a much smaller vent volcano off the side of Mauna Loa which is called
Kilauea. This volcano has been going-off non-stop since the 1970's
and its slow moving lava can be seen inching its fiery pathway to the
coast and into the ocean to the visual delight of thousands of
grateful visitors anxious to see earth's creation in action.
