Hawai’i, or the Big Island, is the largest island in the state, an archipelago made up of eight major islands. In all, the area is almost 11,000 square miles. They are the sparkling jewels in the exotic cruising grounds of your Hawaiian vacation.
Our mountains rise from the sea atop the remnants of ancient volcanoes. The nearshore reefs provide a habitat for sea turtles, sharks, dolphins, whales, colorful unspoiled coral, and countless species of fish, all of which make the Big Island arguably one of the world’s best areas for snorkeling and free diving. The dramatic drop off just a few hundred yards from shore is the real draw for fishermen here. 1,000 pound marlins are no stranger to this internationally famous coast of Hawai’i.
Throughout the island, you’ll find top resorts and every imaginable water sport from windsurfing to diving. In addition, there are island tours, archeological and historical, and fine dining consisting of vegetables, fresh fish, and exotic fruits which are prepared with a Hawaiian influence.
