Shore Excursion: Historic Kona Tour from Kona

Step off your cruise and step back in time on this tour of historic Kona.

On this cruise ship excursion, we share Kailua-Kona’s history to set the stage for your trip back in time to Pu’uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park – an ancient Hawaiian village of refuge for kapu (law) breakers.

We show you a beautiful scenic view overlooking Kealakekua Bay – an underwater preserve and where a monument to Captain Cook stands. Here, he sailed in and was received as the god, Lono, yet he proved to be a mere mortal and was slain. Visit the Painted Church – the tiny church Belgian priests painted to be a grand cathedral. Experience history as rich as the brew at the Kona coffee factory we visit as well.

Don’t miss your chance to discover Kona on this Hawaii cruise excursion!
