A Sunset Segway Tour on the Big Island
Step aboard as your Kailua-Kona Village Segway tour takes you back in time as you experience one of technologies most fascinating, personal forms of transportation – the Segway Personal Transporter (PT).
After our Segway riding lesson, you and your guide glide along Kuakini Highway heading to the “Old Kona Airport” or the “Old A” – originally built as a WWII landing strip and today is a mile-long State Recreational Park where we glide freely through a botanical garden while taking in the oceanfront activities and its beautiful vistas – even more stunning with the setting sun painting a beautiful backdrop.
We then head back to Kona Town and oceanfront Ali’I Drive, designated as a Hawaii Scenic Byway, as we get comfortable on our Segways and taking in the beauty of the ocean views and the “Royal Footsteps Along the Kona Coast.” This byway offers archaeological sites that have survived over hundreds of years.
Our Kona Town Segway tour continues as we learn about the area’s rich Hawaiian history and stop at the Kailua Pier, the starting and finishing point for the Ironman World Championship Triathlon (October). Then, we continue north of the pier to Ahu’ena Heiau (place of worship), a temple in the location of King Kamehameha the Great’s personal retreat and temple and where he spent the last years of his life. We glide by the historic Kona Beach Hotel – next to the heiau that is built on the grounds where King Kamehameha once resided and Hulihe’e Palace. This Palace was the vacation residence of Hawaiian royalty and today is a museum. We then stop at Moku’Auikaua Church, the Island’s first Christian Church built in 1820 and is right across the street from the Palace. Be sure to bring your camera to capture these historic Hawaiian sites and to snap photos of a mesmerizing Hawaiian sunset.
Our Segway tour of Kona comes to a close as we continue gliding along Kona Village’s main thoroughfare with all its fun beach shops and activity stops to our starting point. Guests 10 years and older can experience this fun Kona Village tour.
