We weren't even on the tour, but Grant Mitchell of the Kapoho Kine tour was introducing his clients to the wonders of this Volcano. My wife and I were standing nearby, and really enjoyed talking with - and learning from - Grant. He was showing his clients a close-up view of the MAGMA (not lava, since it's not flowing) through...

The tour was an all day visit to Volcanoes National Park. We were picked up in Kona and drove across the Island to Hilo for other passengers, then up to the Volcanoes. Our guide/driver Carl Benson was very knowledgeable about the Island economy, places to see and eat and the geology, fauna and flora. The van was comfortable and the... More

Shane met the group and gave us our briefing. The Lava 1 accommodates 45 at most. We chose the sunset cruise. While it was a bit pricey, the larger boat probably got to the lava flow faster With a less rough ride than smaller boats. He got us really close to the "river" of lava and made sure both sides...

This being our first trip to Hawaii, my husband and I wanted to see as much as possible. Our experience today on our tour with Kapohokine Adventures (with Erik, our tour guide)gave us more in 12 hours than we could have ever done in days of touring by ourselves. Not only did we get to experience the glow of the... More

Our guide - Lawrence - was fantastic! We highly... More

Thanks to Taj for his interesting and fun tour of Volcanoes Natl Park today! A great day was had by our entire family. Viewing the VERY active eruption on Kilauea at the end of the day was a pretty sweet way to end 2016 on NYE -- Mother Nature's fireworks. Taj knew so much about geology and Hawaiian culture it...

This is one excursion that you will get your monies worth! Started at 10 am and ended at 9:30 pm. Our tour guide Justin M was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. We saw the most amazing sunset and night time lava glow only one mile from Kilauea volcano. Food was ok. Rest of the trip was a five star.

We LOVED this tour! Our guide, Jon, was fantastic! He gave us so much fun and interesting information about the things we did and saw. The day just flew by. We stopped at a coffee farm (with an amazing view), a bakery, the black sand beach, the volcano, a winery for wine tasting and dinner, then back to the volcano... More

Ehitu gave such an in depth history of the area and the park. An saavy tour guide who knew to get the biggest bang for our buck. Do not miss the Lava tubes, Sea Arch, Steam Vents and of course, Kilauea -at-night! Bring an extra battery charger and clear out space on your phones or cameras so you do not... More
