The Ultimate Helicopter Ride
The ultimate helicopter ride adventure provides you with the opportunity to circle the entire Big Island, flying over an active volcano and witness enchanting waterfalls at Waipio Valley, then land at the top of a zip line course that winds through the incredible tree canopy of North Kohala.
Stargazing at Mauna Kea
Mauna Kea is world-renowned for incredible stargazing. Every Saturday night the University of Hawaii hosts a series of evening events that include stargazing at the Mauna Kea Visitor Center.

Diving with Manta Rays
Night diving with Hawaii’s mantas is deemed by the Travel Channel as one of the top ten things to do in your lifetime. Experiencing the beauty of the manta ray up close and personal is an experience you will never forget. This is an exciting adventure that may be enjoyed by both children and adults by snorkel or scuba, the choice is yours.
