Explore Outrigger's Hawaii Island

Hawaii Island is big. Really is big. At 4,038 square miles, bigger than all the other islands combined. It sits on a hotspot on the floor of the Pacific Ocean which percolates an active volcano, Kilauea.  With a dozen different micro-climates, this island offers a level of diversity found no where else in Hawaii including Mauna Kea's arctic-like conditions--yes, we mean snow--and some of the clearest skies in the world.  Hawaii Island is also known for aromatic Kona Coffee, spectacular scuba diving, and dramatic black sand beaches.
