What you'll do

We start by touring the prettiest road on the island, close to the ocean and lava cliffs, near tidepools and spots with breathtaking sunrises that usually are followed by rainbows! Then we mosey on down to swim and snorkel in the geothermal ponds at the King's Bath, a hard to find picturesque hot pond that will not disappoint. We most always have the area to ourselves due to the time of day, making it feel like your private oasis! There is no lava flow to view, the ponds are heated by the lava underground making natural hot tubs!

I am a mother, travel lover and adventurer with a passion for the island! I love to travel like a local and want to provide other adventurers the same opportunity by taking them to experience places and moments that are local treasures <3 I left Florida where I had lived most of my life, sold my house, quit my job and moved to the island without knowing anyone here. I have embraced the culture and it has embraced me. My unique perspective will provide travelers with an experience like none other!

Where you'll be

Although we will meet in Hilo, (for guests staying in Pahoa, we can meet there) the location we are driving to is in Pahoa as these are the only hot ponds on the island. We will stop at a lava cliff to watch sunrise, see the NEWEST black sand beach and swim in the Kings Bath hot pond! There are three different hot ponds to swim, lounge, and even snorkel in! Snorkel gear is included, but any guests that want water shoes should bring their own.

If you are looking for someone to take you around to places that are so stunning and very low key, definitely book with Dawn! Not only did she bring us to places with beautiful views and great experiences but she made it such a fun day! I stepped out of my comfort zone and did things I definitely wouldn’t have done without Dawn, and I’m so glad I did. If you’re interested in specific things, just talk to her! She gave me a list of options to pick from and put our itinerary together based on my picks. She’s super friendly and knowledgeable about the the wild life and all of the places we went weren’t crowded at all. Contact her, book with her! Super easy to talk to, great communication, gave us suggestions for our stay on the island and brought us places we never would’ve found on our own.

I spent a full day with Dawn, and she made it magical. I will definitely go to Dawn again to see more secrets of the Big Island.

We really enjoyed our sunrise tour with Dawn. She brought us to an amazing, quiet beach to watch the sunrise and then took us to swim in hot spring pools. Dawn was a great host and she shared her personal experiences from her time on the island. After the tour, she made us a personalized video to commemorate our time together!
