Kona History By Segway

Offer Image
Discover Kailua-Kona on a Segway! See King Kamehameha's temple, the island's first Christian church, and more.

Kona History by Segway

This 1.5 hour tour is the perfect introduction to Kailua-Kona. After a brief training session, you will hop on your very own Segway personal transporter and glide along the oceanfront Ail'l Drive. This designated Hawaii Scenic Byway will reward you with stunning ocean views beside the Kona Coast. During your outing, your guide will take you to the Kailua Pier, the starting and finishing point of the annual Ironman World Championship Triathlon.

Head north of the pier to Ahu'ene Heiau, King Kamehameha the Great's retreat and see the temple where he worshipped during the last years of his life. You will also pass the nearby historic Kona Beach Hotel and Hulihe'e Palace. This former royal vacation palace-turned-museum houses furnishings that were in place during the monarchy. Next up is Moku'Auikaua Church, the first Christian church built on the island in 1820.

Conclude your time in Kailua-Kona riding along the village's main thoroughfare with its funky beach shops and activities as you make your way back to the starting point.

Book now for a fun and novel way to explore Kailua-Kona.
