You will have to board a tender boat to get to the island. You may have to navigate some steps to get down to the boats and be prepared for long lines waiting to get off. But, it is worth getting off the ship. As soon as you got to the dock, there was a beach. There were several large turtles that you could see swimming in the beautiful blue water. It is also a beautiful island. There were several vendors near the dock where you could buy things. The person we had planned to take a tour with never returned so we boarded an open bus and rode around for $2.00. We were dropped off at mall and then caught a free shuttle to Walmart. It was nice sitting down and still be able to see some of the island.

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.

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.

We road the Kona Trolley for $2. Road all around town and out the coast a ways. Just get on and don't get off. The trolley will pick you up across the street from the tender port by the banyan tree if you can get there in time for the shuttle it is a great deal and a pleasant ride. You can get off the shuttle a few stops from where you started and walk back thru the town area.
