Hawaii Cruise Ship Shore Excursions

Our cruise ship shore excursions give Hawaii cruise ship passengers in Hilo and Kona the best opportunity to experience the best sites on the Big Island. Specific tours have been developed to account for your limited time on shore. Because each of these Hawaii tours is private, you can develop your own itinerary and we will adjust to accommodate your particular schedule and interests.
