  • The Big Island of Hawaii has 11 of the world's 13 climatic zones with a very wide range of elevations, temperatures, rainfall, wind and water. The Island is also home to numerous active volcanoes in daily-changing levels of activity that make tour planning very dynamic. Charter tours require making sure that the plan can accommodate everyone involved, so careful coordination is necessary for groups that might include guests with restrictions in mobility, children, or physical conditions by tour type. Volcano area activities often involve exposure to steam or dangerous volcanic gases and are not recommended for people with any kind of breathing impairment or risk.
  • Rates apply to the entire van, for up to 12 people maximum, with any combination of children or adults, however all children must be accompanied. Child seats are available upon advance request.
  • Minimum age: On charters that include EXTREME Lava hiking or hikes to Mauna Ulu or Kilauea Iki Crater.
