While you’re in port in Kona, get a taste of Big Island history and culture on this shore excursion. Learn about the history of Kona at Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park – an ancient Hawaiian place of refuge for law breakers. Visit Saint Benedict’s Painted Church, where Belgian-born priest Father Velghe painted colorful biblical scenes on the walls of the church. Finish your day at Royal Kona Coffee and sample a delicious Kona cup of joe.

The Big Island isn’t only breathtaking scenery and beaches – it also has a history and culture just waiting to be explored on a shore excursion. On this historical and cultural tour of Kona, you’ll take a step back in time to Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, which translates to “Place of Refuge at Honaunau.” In ancient Hawaii, residents who broke Hawaii’s system of kapu (law) would receive death as punishment. The only option for survival would be to escape to the nearest puuhonua, or place of refuge.
Today, you can experience the peace of Puuhonua o Honoaunau National Historical Park, where ancient temples and ki’i (carved wooden images) hint at stories from the past. Stroll around this palm-covered sanctuary and enjoy the view of Honaunau Bay.
Continue your historical journey to St. Benedict’s Painted Church, where Belgian-born Father Velghe’s three-dimensional paintings depict heroes from the Bible. This artwork served as an important teaching tool in a time when many people couldn’t read and write. Father Velghe painted this church in 1842, and this parish continues the work Father Velghe began more than a century ago.
Finish your shore excursion at the Royal Kona Coffee Visitor Center, where you’ll see how coffee “cherries” are processed into delicious Royal Kona coffee. Enjoy the view of Kealakekua Bay in the distance and savor a sample of Kona coffee.
Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your timely return back to the ship in Kona Pier for this activity. If your ship is delayed and you are unable attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

We begin our day at Honaunau Beach Park with
an informative briefing to ensure your
safety. We then head due north approximately
two and a half miles following the rugged
coastline. This stretch of coastline is very
isolated. Once we begin our trip and leave the
bay of Honaunau, there are no points of exit
due to the rugged nature of the coastline. If the
water is calm, we will explore the mysterious
sea caves lining the coast.
That is what makes our trip so very special — it
is just our small group surrounded by the beauty
of Mother Nature. The only sounds you shall
hear will be the calls of the seabirds and the
crashing of waves on the coast. If we are lucky,
we may be visited by a pod of dolphins that
regularly frequent the area.
At the half-way point, we take a refreshment
break consisting of local tropical fruits and
beverages while your guide shares stories about
the rich history and geology of the area before
returning to Honaunau Beach.
After an enchanting paddle, you will enjoy a
scrumptious buffet lunch under the palm trees
at the City of Refuge, Pu’uhonua O Honaunau.
Once we are well rested, you will be able to
tour the National Park at your own pace while
being swept into the ancient ways of old Hawaii.
The State Park, nicknamed “Two Steps,” is
also known for some of the most incredible
snorkeling in the Hawaiian Islands, so bring your
snorkel gear for after the trip.

See the breathtaking landscapes of the Big Island of Hawaii like a VIP on this unforgettable helicopter tour from Kona. Home to some of the most biologically diverse and dramatic natural features on the planet (volcanoes, beaches, rainforest, lava fields, waterfalls… need we go on?), the Big Island was made for helicopter tours, and this one is particularly wonderful, as it includes a Champagne toast, is perfectly timed with the sunset and is a whopping two hours long. Circle the whole island, from the Hamakua Coast to Kilauea, enjoying the amazing aerial views. This exclusive Viator experience can’t be booked anywhere else!

After hotel pickup, head to the Kona airport to begin your VIP helicopter tour over the Big Island. When you arrive, enjoy a traditional lei greeting and glass of Champagne to mark the occasion. Then board your comfortable Bell 407 helicopter and take off, heading north to fly over the secluded beaches and lava fields along the Kona, Kohala and Hamakua coasts. Throughout the tour, listen to commentary from your pilot, who you can communicate with via your two-way headset.
Next, fly to the far side of the Kohala Mountains to look down on a series of lush hidden valleys, and then cruise down to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to hover over Mauna Loa, the largest volcano on Earth, and Kilauea, the most active of the Big Island’s volcanoes. By this time, the sun will have fallen behind the mountains, allowing you to spot the glowing lava more easily and admire the magma lake in Halema'uma'u Crater.
Continue to the southern tip of the Big Island, passing over the black-sand beach of Punalu’u and the green-sand beach of Papakolea, two of Hawaii’s most striking stretches of coastline. Round the tip of the island and head back north along the west coast, flying over Pu’uhonua ‘o Honaunau National Historic Park, which once served as a refuge for ancient Hawaiians who broke a law. As you fly from the park to Kealakekua Bay, a couple of miles north, the sun begins to set, creating quite a show.
Watch the sky turn shades of yellow, orange, red and purple, and keep your eyes peeled for the rare flash of green that appears on the horizon when the conditions are just right. When the sky finally turns dark, return to the airport, from where you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.
Flight time is approximately two hours; total duration is approximately three hours including the check-in and pre-departure process.
