Big Island with the Boys

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip for myself, husband, and boys 14 and 20. We are looking at the Big Island for our interest in outdoor activities and unique experiences -- volcanos, hiking, kayaking, etc. In fact both boys are both Boy Scouts, but Mom is not camping on her trip to Hawaii!! Is there a place to use as a home base or is it better to travel from one area to the next? I saw one itinerary posted here with the suggestion to fly into one airport and leave from the other, for example.

Not sure if we should try and visit a second island and extend trip from one week to ten days or so. Any suggestions are appreciated!
