The Big Island

HAWAII "The Big Island"
• Size: 4,038 sq mi - 93 miles long and 76 miles wide

• Coastline: 266 miles

• Highest Point: Mauna Kea - 13,796 feet AS

• Population: 145,000
We are currently in Kona and then we move to Punalu'u tomorrow.
There is so much sightseeing to do on this island and you could spend a fortune taking tours, submarines, helicopter flights, glassbottom boats, Mauna Kea trek (they supply the Arctic jackets for the passengers), and even a boat that gets up close and personal with the flowing lava from Kilauea. This one costs $180 a person and sounds rather dangerous from what I read other people right about it.
But you can do a lot of these things on your own by car.
