Island of Hawaii Activities

The island of Hawaii offers a variety of places to explore, including some of Hawaii’s most incredible natural wonders and historic sites. No other island gives you a place to swim with manta rays, horseback ride and whale watch, all on the same visit. No other island lets you see a fiery volcano, a 420-foot waterfall and a black-sand beach. No other island offers so many cultural treasures in so many varying environments. With so much ground to cover, you’ll see why it is known as “Hawaii’s Island of Adventure.”
