My husband and I were planning a trip to Hilo and wanted to see lava. I happened upon a website for C Big Island Tours and booked the lava boat tour. Best decision ever! The experience with this company from start to finish was awesome. The Captain of our boat was very informative, the boat was not crowded, we were able to see several areas where lava was flowing, and the ride out to the lava and back was comfortable. Overall, an awesome time!

Thank jennifer m

Thank you so very much for the fabulous review! The lava has been quite active lately giving great shows. You captain grew up on those waters his whole life and knows that side of the volcano very well. We are so thankful to have the captain we have. I will let him know your review as well. He will be so excited to hear it. Than you again :)

We happened upon C Big Island tours after getting off our cruise ship and deciding what we were going to do. We were lucky enough to meet Brandy the owner. We wee interested in seeing the lava flows and our helicopter tour in Maui had been canceled so we had the extra money to spend on a fabulous boat tour. Brandy drove us about 45 minutes to catch the boat which was a great 6 seater. We were quickly loaded and had a fabulous hour cruise on the Pacific to see the Lava flows going right into the water. We stayed for about 1/2 hour before heading back. It was definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity and one we don't regret. Brandy is a wealth of knowledge a we thoroughly enjoyed his company.......thanks Brandy.

C Big Island tours literally MADE our time in Hawaii an amazing experience. Not only were the sights and tours they had to offer a fantastical selection, but the tour guides were amazing as well. Pavy and Chapo went out of their way to make sure my mom and I had an unforgettable experience traveling around the big island. It wasn't just the experience we had with these two brothers that was amazing, but seeing them in their element. The entire C Big Island crew is a big family, and being led around by Pavy and Chapo for the day and night made us both feel as if we were a part of this large Hawaiian ohana. There were honestly times when I forgot I was a tourist on vacation, and felt as if I was spending the day looking at waterfalls with my friends.

The staff of C Big Island go out of their way to make you feel both happy and safe during your stay in and around the Big Island. I think it would be a pity if anyone visiting the big island missed out on this experience.

Request Pavy and Chapo as your tour guides. You will not be sorry!! They are two of the most amazing people I have had the pleasure of meeting during my extended stay in Hilo Hawaii.

Before I came to Hawaii I felt that Hawaii was overrated but once I got to Kona, I fell in love. Everyone in my group of ten had the best time ever on this tour that let us see some of the things that made this island so wonderful. My tour guide, Chapo, is what made the trip. He was full of information about the island and had the answers to all our questions. Also he was extremely kind and even helped me through the worst drive ever. He's amazing as is Big Island. I'll be back

Chapo is the greatest tour guide of all time. Without chapo I would not have had as good of a time. He also drove back out to help me find my fanny pack. CHAPO IS THE MAN
