Summer Special Hawaiian Style! Save 10% + Free Shipping at Coffees of Hawaii. Promo Code: COFFEE10 - 468x60

Aloha travel friends! Let me tell you a little secret… There’s no better way to celebrate the May flowers than donning a gorgeous, aromatic Lei in Honolulu. Now is the perfect time to beat the crowds and the rising temperatures with the ultimate tropical escape – that’s right, it could only be Hawaii. Summer is right around the bend, and there are TONS of exciting Eco tours from Honolulu for you to do! Get off the concrete and discover the gorgeous natural beauty of the Islands. You’ll be glad you did, and remember your adventures for years to come. From active volcanoes to hidden waterfalls, pristine beaches to incredible mountain views in the clouds, swimming with sea turtles to zip-lining through the rainforest, Honolulu really is an Eco Paradise.

The Hawaiian Islands, located at center of the Ring of Fire, are formed entirely of volcanoes, one of the most destructive natural forces on earth. Everyone knows how deadly volcanoes can be. But did you know the benefits of them? Many volcanic materials are very beneficial to nature and human life – lava that is continuously forming new landmasses and islands, diamonds and other precious gemstones, generating geothermal energy, volcanic rocks used for making roads, natural glass from lava (pumice), volcanic ash that is rich in nutrients and greatly improves soil fertility, and carbon dioxide and hydrogen released into the earth’s atmosphere that begin the processes of photosynthesis and the water cycle. Volcanoes have a delicate balance with nature – fire & water, death & life, ashes & lush vegitation. Hawaii is one of the greatest mysteries of the universe. See these marvels up-close for yourself on our Eco adventure tours!

My first recommendation has to be our Big Island Grand Circle Island Volcano Adventure from Honolulu. Not only will you see the magnificent ancient Banyan trees, coffee farms, and Orchid and Anthurium Nursery of Hilo, but you will also get to see the beautiful 80 foot tall and almost 100 foot wide Rainbow Falls. Then the highlight of the tour – a visit to the world famous Kilauea Volcano, which has been steadily erupting since the 1980′s. Your tour guide will entertain and educate as you explore the Volcano National Park, the Jaggar Museum, Thurston Lava Tube, Fern Tree Jungle, Kilauea Iki Crater, and more. Don’t forget your camera on this fantastic tour, or you might just cry. And then have to buy another one. Don’t miss this amazing adventure in Hawaii!

My second recommendation is our Mauka to Makai: Zipline, Kayak, Snorkel & Eco Hike with Lunch from Honolulu. See Oahu the way that you have always dreamed of during a thrilling Eco-adventure on the Windward coast of Oahu. Hiking through the rainforest of the Ko’olau Mountains, soaring above the trees of Oahu’s valley, and kayaking through the crystal clear waters of the Pacific are all included in this fun-filled day trip! Your expert ecologist is devoted to showing off the unique life that exists only in Hawaii’s climate. This popular tour sells out well in advance, so reserve early.

On our Ultimate Circle Island Eco Adventure with Lunch from Honolulu, you’ll get to see Hawaii’s wide variety of wildlife with stops at a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle basking grounds and bird watching at native Hawaiian wetlands. Your professional tour guide will share information about the many different plants, birds, and animals that call Hawaii home. Designed to both entertain and educate, this tour will expose you to Oahu’s raw natural beauty with stops off the beaten path. You will also visit Byodo-In Temple, enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, see famous lookouts and beaches of Oahu, hike Waimea Valley and enjoy a refreshing waterfall swim!

No matter what you wish to do in Honolulu, Aloha Tours is proud to be your source for sightseeing tours and attractions on the Islands of Hawaii. We offer tours and activities on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, The Big Island, Lanai, Molokai, and Molokini. Indulge in some of the best foods in the world, take in some sun in this tropical climate, and enjoy a never ending array of things to see and do.

Big Island Tours and Activities

Hawaii’s Big Island is filled with energy. Polynesian legend claims the goddess Pele gave volcanic birth to the Islands of Aloha. Hawaii’s Big Island is her latest and greatest creation, and it is still warm from its fiery birth. The Big Island is twice the size of its sisters combined, and growing every day as its active volcano, Kilauea, sends new land to a steamy meeting with the ocean 4,000 feet below. There are countless waterfalls feeding rainforests, and the landscape is more like that of a fantasy. There are massive black lava fields that remind you of the island’s relative youth, and the numerous uncrowded beaches let you catch your breath amidst unspoiled beauty.

Lanai Tours and Activities

Lana’i is a place of pristine, primal beauty, Hawaii’s “Most Enticing Island” where you can walk a mile on a beach without seeing another person. The former site of one of Hawaii’s major pineapple plantations, Lana’i has been transformed into a destination known, and coveted, by discerning travelers from all points of the compass.

Lana’i visitors can choose from two world-class resort hotels or unique “local style” accommodations. Golfers will revel in the challenges offered by two distinctly different championship courses. Visit Lana’i and you will find unexpected treasures joyfully shared by a people who are genuine and kind. We provide sightseeing day tours to Lana’i from Maui.

Molokai Tours and Activities

Moloka’i is Hawaii’s “Most Natural Island.” A haven for outdoor explorers, eco-seekers, and ocean adventurers, Moloka’i has little traffic and no traffic lights. On this special island folks go along at a very different pace. Many work the land, others harvest the bounty of the sea. Visitors can choose to hike through lush, magnificent valleys, ride horseback along gorgeous coastlines, mountain bike over soaring sea cliffs or kayak miles of pristine barrier reefs. We provide sightseeing day tours to Moloka’i from Maui.
