Hilo Ocean Adventures - Hamakua Coast Sightseeing (Seasonal Whale Watching)

See the most of the east coast of Big Island with Hilo Ocean Adventures on their 3 hour Hamakua Coast sightseeing adventure. A photographer's dream, this cruise offers highlights of tropical landscapes, lush palm tree gulches and secret coves. See ancient Hawaiian villages and the remains of Hilo's plantation era sugar mills and railroads that connected to ship landings. Two of the Hamakua Coast's best known sugar companies can be seen from the boat, including the Papaikou sugar mill on a black sand beach.  Mauna Kea fills the backdrop view with ocean entry waterfalls and is snow-capped in the winter. Also to the south you can see the evidence of eruptions of Kilauea (lava sightings are not guaranteed).

Tour Highlights:
  • Scenic 3 hour boat tour
  • Sights of tropical landscapes, palm tree gulches and secret coves
  • Sights of sugar mills, railroads and two sugar companies from the boat

  • During whale season (mid December - April) there can also be whale watching on the tour
