Kilauea Volcano has been erupting for over 30 years, continuously. On the Big Island rising above the rainforests of Puna is Kilauea Volcano. Sometimes shrouded in low rain clouds, it’s not that visible. Like many of the secrets of Hawaii, it doesn’t look like a treasure hidden from view. But, yet there it is, spewing molten lava at a rate that is adding square miles to the coast of the Big Island. Discover Hawaii Tours Volcano Tours give you a couple different options to see this spectacle up close and in person.

Helicopter Tour

This Maui tour begins with a flight to Hilo, Hawaii. From here it differs from any activity in Hawaii. Blue Hawaiian Helicopters Circle of Fire flight is just on the other side of the tarmac. The flight lifts up from the heliport flying over Akana Falls on the out skirts of Hilo. Akana Falls is the largest and most spectacular of any waterfall in Hawaii. You will see it from above as it roars down to a deep pool with a zipline racing across its face. The flight veers east towards Kilauea and you can see it looming, smoking, and pushing lava out of its main vents from afar. The helicopter tour of Kilauea takes you not over the caldera, but also follows the stream of lava as it slowly works its way down the slopes, pouring into the ocean. You will witness the power of Kilauea as its lava rages as it meets the cool waters off the coast. Steam plumes rise hundreds of feet into the sky, you can scratch seeing an active volcano off your things to do in Hawaii. The helicopter tour of the volcano is a 45-minute flight. Once you arrive back at the heliport the tour resumes with a drive up to the Kilauea Crater. Fern tress crowd the road on both sides as you rise up the flanks of Kilauea. Once in the National Park your tour visits the Jagger Museum, the Puu Vent Crater and a host of other sites along the rim of the volcano. Volcano House, is a restaurant overlooking the main caldera. Its windows have a direct view into the crater where it all began. Here a no host lunch is offered. The journey continues around to the coast where you can walk on lava flows to view where the lava comes out to dump in the ocean. This is the single most breathtaking sight in Hawaii. Relish the moment. Winding your way back to the airport, the tour makes several stops depending on the season. Some stops may include a coffee plantation, mac nut orchards and a fern tree forest. Out of all the tours in Hawaii, regardless of the island, this is the most exciting of them all. Take a day and explore the active volcano on the Big Island and you will have memories that will last a lifetime. The bus used for this tour is a large one. The tour consists of guests from both Oahu and Maui. It’s a very popular activity and advanced reservations are required.

A no host lunch can be purchased at the historical Volcano House Restaurant overlooking Kilauea Crater.

Ground Tour

Discover Hawaii with a tour to the Big Island and explore Kilauea Volcano. Your day begins with a flight from Maui to Hilo on the island of Hawaii. From there you will embark on tour of Hilo. Just outside Hilo are some impressive waterfalls. You will be able to take pictures and watch as a zipline tour zips across the face of the waterfall in one of Hawaii’s most exciting activities. After a time, the journey takes you through rainforest of the Puna District, arriving at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.  After entering the park, you will discover the power of Pele the fire goddess of Hawaiian folklore. As you travel along the Chain of Craters Road you will make stops the Thurston Lava Tube and Kilauea Iki Crater. You will visit the Jagger Museum viewing the exhibits that define the power of Kilauea Volcano. As you leave the national park some of the stops along the adventure is the fern tree jungle and the Steam Bluffs where the lava from Kilauea flows into the ocean. The are some of the seasonal stops on this awesome tour of Hawaii may include the Macadamia nut factory and the Orchid and Arthurian Nursery. There is ample time to explore the volcano. Your guides will share the legends and myths that surround Kilauea Volcano. Kilauea Volcano has been erupting since 1983 continuously. Each year it adds land to the island. It appears to be forever growing in size. Sometimes guests ask us why does this adventure in Hawaii takes so long. The answer to that is the airline and the size of the Big Island. Even though the island is Hawaii the largest of all the Hawaiian Islands, there aren’t many roads to drive on. The route taken on this tour backtracks down Kilauea to connect to the road that leads to the coast where the lava is dumping into the ocean. The bus used for this tour is a large one. The tour consists of guests from both Oahu and Maui. Discover Hawaii Tours Volcano tours are very popular activities and advanced reservations are recommended.

Wonderful Experience ❤️❤️. We had an amazing experience of Pearl Harbor and Honolulu city tour with Discover Hawaii Tours. Our guide Jorge was knowledgable and full of humor. We would love to visit Hawaii again with you guys next time. Thanks for the lovely time.

Experience of a lifetime
I had NO IDEA how to go about the trip, what to do, where to start.
Luckily I contacted Discoverhawaii! (Dennis) was great. They organized all aspects of my trip so I did not miss the all the MUST sees!
Thank you for the excellent service.

Like so many others our tour with these thieves was cancelled the day before we are due to go. Numerous calls to their office to get refund only to be told they will send me a check. I did not waste time as no company these days issues cheques for a refund so I immediately contact the credit card company and claimed refund. Strongly suggest not to book with these thieves. Go with someone reputable.

Be careful with this one. If they cancel a tour on you, they will do absolutely nothing to refund the cost of the tour to you. In fact, they will try to make you jump through hoops - which I am still doing after a tour that their company cancelled in May of this year.

We had a wonderful experience with Doscover Hawaii Tours! We did the Road to Hana. Our tour guide Stan was very friendly, entertaining and informative. The day was perfectly planned out. It was so nice to sit back, relax and enjoy the road to Hana without having to stress about driving it and knowing where to stop, and Stan was able to point out things we never would have known on our own. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Maui. We highly recommend it!
