Many record-setting marlin have been caught in the area's waters. Step into the lobby of the Kamehameha Hotel, where you can see many historical Hawaiian artifacts.

Lava java for breakfast. Rent mopeds from Fun in the Sun Rentalz. Get snorkel equipment there too. Head over to Kahalu'u Beach _ark for some great free snorkeling!

This is the only port where you use a tender because the ship doesn't have a port it can dock at. But, its also the only one you can really walk to shops, restaurants, etc on your own.

Kona Brewery supplies all the craft beer on the cruise and is a short walk from the drop off point on port (a tender is used here). However, the stay in Kona is short so we didn't get the chance to visit its brewpub or tour.
