Kona is the second stop in Hilo on our cruise. We booked a whole day tour with C Big. We started seeing green turtles at the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park. Our next stop at the famous Royal Kona Coffee Center was very informative. Aside from free sampling of the

We had a great time on this tour. The group size was not to big so we didn’t lose out on any of the views or hearing the guide speak. The sea turtles were pretty cool, we were able to get into the water, knee deep...and see a bunch of them. The coffee tour was pretty

Enjoyed our day very much! The driver was a Hilo resident ( sorry we can't remember his name) and had lots of information to share while being entertaining at the same time. I went out into the water to see the sea turtles and was within a few feet of them while my husband

Mahalo Ruth for taking the time to leave a review. Your guide was Edmund. So glad you enjoyed our Kona tour. It is one of my favorites as well........mainly because the Sea Turtles :) I dont drink coffee, but as you said it is actually very interesting and they actually had some delicious Hawaiian teas there as well.

Fantastic excursion! Great if you have never been to Kona before. Driver was very knowledgeable about the island, wildlife, plants and esp the history. He did all this while being an excellent driver.

The tour time was changed from original departure time of 9:30 to 10:00. I was concerned that we might miss our departure time for ship and messaged the tour group, they were quick to respond and assured me that they work with the ship all of the time and it would be fine. The

Aloha Jessica, thank you for the review. We always adjust times in order to schedule around ship arrival and departure. To get to the Sea Turtles we first go to Kaloko Historical national park and from that stop there is an optional trail hike to the sea turtles....it is a bit hot and long so the guide drives everyone to a more hidden path that is only about 7 min walk to the turtles and Hawaiian hut on the beach. Yes it is in an odd area but that's nothing we can help :) Glad you enjoyed the tour
