Get ready for a Big Island adventure to remember! This Jeep tour has a little bit of everything you’re looking for including breathtaking views, the Pu‘uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historical Park, Kona coffee tasting and more!
Experience Pu‘uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historical Park, also known as the City of Refuge. In ancient Hawaii, breaking a kapu (sacred law) was punishable by death. However, if an offender could reach the City of Refuge before being apprehended, he could return home with his transgression forgiven. At the park, you’ll find canoe builders, demonstrations of traditional Hawaiian games, and a massive L-shaped wall that was built around 1550 from thousands of lava rocks. You’ll also have the opportunity to view massive ki‘i (Hawaiian temple structures) that guard the historical structure.
The Big Island of Hawaii is the birthplace of Kona Coffee, one of the most sought-after coffees in the world. During your tour we’ll take you to a local Kona Coffee farm where you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at the coffee-making process from seed to harvest to store. Then, choose your favorite blend and enjoy a coffee-break during a free Kona Coffee taste test. Next, we’ll take you to the oldest macadamia nut/coffee factory co-op in the United States, where you’ll enjoy free samples and a generous inventory of gourmet coffee, macadamia nuts and chocolate candies.
Once you’ve filled your belly, it’s time to fill-up on historical knowledge about the Big Island. Your guide will take you to the historical Captain Cook monument at famous Kealakekua Bay. This is where the first Westerner, Captain James Cook landed on the island and incidentally was murdered about a year later following a skirmish with Native Hawaiians).
We’ll then take a break with a stop at “2-step,” one of the most spectacular snorkeling spots in the state (Optional). Enjoy views of breathtaking underwater reefs, fish and sea life while you cool-off in the refreshing waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Coffee and culture are mainstays on this fascinating island, and you now have the opportunity to learn about both on the same day.
