Big Island Activities Review
The Island of Hawaii, also popularly known as the Big Island, is the largest and youngest of all the Hawaiian Islands. Known for its vast lava fields and dormant and active volcanoes, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, respectively, the island brings in roughly 1.5 million visitors a year.
The Big Island offers activities and amenities that are offered on the other islands, as well as exclusive, unique activities that can be done nowhere else.
One of the main activities that are recommended to do no matter where you are is to attend a luau. Luaus on the Big Island are a delightful activity to partake in that exposes you to the true essence of the Hawaiian Islands, while being able to sit back, relax, and enjoy wonderful company, food, and hula entertainment. While staying on the Big Island, be sure to check out the Island Breeze Luau or the Royal Kona Luau, as either one will provide you and your family with a great time!
Another activity that is recommended and highly praised is a helicopter tour on the Big Island. The Big Island boasts 11 of 13 climate zones that exist on Earth, so seeing all of these different climate zones, along with the constant lava flow into the ocean from Kilauea volcano will surely take your breath away. The Kona Volcano Deluxe Helicopter Tour takes you on an hour and 45 minute flight that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime!
One last activity that is special and unique to the Big Island is the Manta Ray dive trips. Throughout the last 30 years, these gentle giants have become conditioned to know that during these dives, they will be provided with a free dinner! Therefore, it is an almost full guarantee that you will see manta rays while on this trip! Their wingspan range on average from 5-8 feet, yet some can be up to 14 feet! There are a couple of options to participate in this activity on the Big Island and it is hands-down an incredible experience!
Besides these three major activities available on the Big Island, some other highly recommended activities, including parasailing, jet-skiing, and kayak tours, are worth keeping in mind!
