Again, discount Hawaii car rental and Jeep on over to Volcano National Park. Get the Gypsy guide app for the Big Island and it will direct you to all the must see areas. I suggest going to the Punaluu Beach Park first to see the black sand and sea turtles and then make your way to the Volcanos.

We took a taxi tour by a local Hawaiian, this was a wonderful option for us, it wasn't a ship excursion, just a local guy. We spent about 3 hours driving around the island taking pictures and he showed us all the sites. Much cheaper than any ship excursion and we got the "real" feel of the island. Cost $50 for 2.

Enjoyed our visit to the volcano and were lucky to see lava. The Nani Mau gardens gave us an opportunity to see the beautiful flowers, plants and trees up close and take pictures. We really liked seeing the Mauna Loa Nut operations.

Went on the Volcano excursion which was informative and educating. Seeing the volcano and the lava rocks it produces was unbelievable, If I had to do it again I would make sure it was the excursion that took you to the volcano which was actually flowing into the sea in a video it was a sight to behold,
