Our favorite port. Most notably because of our once in a lifetime experience of watching the volcano erupting from a helicopter & watching a huge cliff fall into the ocean whenever the 6.9 magnitude earthquake struck the island. We were in the air whenever it hit & literally watched a huge 400 ft tall, mile long cliff/shelf fall into the ocean. We have the video to prove it!

We had an excursion with a local who drove us up to Volcano, where we saw hot lava from the Jagger observatory! He took us to off the beaten paths to see steam vents and explained things that we had never heard about (Pele's tears and hair). Saw the Thursten Lava Tube then he took us to Hilo to the Mauna Loa Nut Factory, Hawaiian Candy Factory and black sand beach, where we saw 4 turtles sunning themselves.

Not much in Downtown Hilo, but visit the awesome Botannical Gardens (if the volcano tours are cancelled). Although the volcano tour was cancelled, the ship cruised slowly past the volcanic area at night. It was an awesome sight and a trip highlight

We went on an excursion to visit the Hawaii Volcano National Park and Rainbow Falls. Very enjoyable all day experience. It's great to see the ground steaming around you.....made me feel about as small as I've ever felt before. That was a really great feeling as my ego can be a bit too much sometimes. It really puts things into perspective.
