Hilo Ocean Adventures - Hilo Bay Myths & Legends Waterfall Lagoon Adventure

This Big Island Sightseeing Tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Big Island Sightseeing Tours page for other available tours.

Come aboard a Zodiac raft and be transported into a Polynesian postcard setting on this relaxing tour of the calm waters of Hilo Bay. Pass by Coconut Island, a small isle that was a refuge for warriors back in ancient times. Legend has it that anyone who was ill could swim around the island 3 times to be healed.

Visit other popular sites in the bay, including the ice ponds and bayfront black sand beach. Then travel upstream on the Wailuku River, the Big Island's longest river. Along the way, you'll pass under the Singing Bridge. The Hawaii Belt Road runs across this repurposed railway bridge and the steel grid deck underneath the road creates a singing sound as cars drive across it. Once you reach the waterfall, you can enjoy a refreshing swim in the waterfall lagoon or swing from the banyan trees over the lagoon.

On this tour you'll also enjoy views of historic Hilo Town and learn about its history of thriving sugar plantations and a large sampan fishing fleet before two major tsunamis in 1946 and 1960 changed the nature of the town. Book this rafting tour now for a fun introduction to Hilo Bay, Hilo Town and the Waikulu River Falls.
