Hawaii Map, Big Island Dive, laminated, 2011 by Frankos Maps Ltd.
Side 1 shows Frankos Map of Hawaii with a shaded relief depiction of the island as it ascends from the sea to nearly 14,000 feet on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. These volcanoes, plus the very active Kilauea, as well as Hualalai and the inactive Kohala mountains (in the very northern panhandle of the Big Island) are clearly shown, along with the roads that circumnavigate and cut across the island. Shaded in a gray tone, the major lava flows from the last 200 years are depicted, indicating just how volatile the underlying volcanoes of Hawaii are in this era.
The various scuba diving and snorkeling sites that are the delight of millions of tourists are shown. Most of them are along the leeward side of the island, from Kawaihae and Kohala, down through the Kona Coast to South Kona. They include places to see the magnificent Manta Rays at night, as well as sites to see an absolute myriad of tropical reef creatures (almost everywhere along the coast). A few dive sites are also shown in the Hilo area. Dozens of colorful tropical reef creatures swimming amid the corals of the reef are depicted.
Side 2 of Frankos Dive Map of Hawaii zooms in on the Kona Coast, Hilo Area, Kilauea Volcano, and Kailua-Kona, and has a fantastic view of the whole chain of The Hawaiian Islands, as it stretches hundreds of miles across the middle of the vast North Pacific Ocean.
The close-up of the Kona Coast shows diving and snorkeling spots located and described, plus locations of many places to see or visit along the Kona Coast, such as the Captain Cook monument, golf courses, or resorts.
The Hilo area with its many waterfalls and other features is detailed with its major roads and features. The town of Kailua-Kona is shown in detail with the locations of shopping and lodging sites.
You will note the extensive and on-going lava flows rolling down the flanks of Kilauea to the Pacific Ocean. The constant eruptions and vast lava flows have caused a considerable revamping of the Kilauea map detail each year.
