The Destination Kona Coast Aloha Volunteers greet cruise ship passengers and other visitors at the Aloha Booth on the Kona Pier every cruise ship day. The Aloha Booth is open from 07:30 – 2:00 on cruise ship days. Each volunteer is scheduled one or more times a month for a shift of 2 to 3 hours. Aloha Volunteers can be recognized by our matching aloha wear and name badges. Our main mission is to assist visitors so that they experience the true “Aloha Spirit” of the Port of Kona & enjoy their visit to Historic Kailua Village. We provide information about shuttle buses, rentals cars, restaurants, shops, driving directions, & so many more things that cannot be listed here.
Many volunteers are full-time Kona residents while others live in Kona several months each year.
If you would like to join the Aloha Volunteers on cruise ship days, impart information to visitors, learn more about Kona and Hawaii Island from others, and meet people from all parts of the world, please contact Destination Kona Coast.
