Your hoverboarding adventure starts when you make your way to the front of the Honolulu Zoo in Waikiki and meet your local guide. After safety instruction and practice, your hoverboard will become an extension of you to effortlessly explore the island on. Pop on your wireless one-ear audio receiver to learn about Hawaii's nature, history, and listen to nostalgic Hawaiian music as you hover from place to place.
Since you'll start at Kapiolani Park, you'll first learn to recognize some of the most popular island trees, such as exceptional Indian Banyan, Rainbow Shower, Monkeypod, Ironwood, Plumeria, Coconut Palm, and more. We take in the impressive beach views while learning about ancient Hawaiian and modern surfing on Oahu, known as the 'birthplace of surfing'. Stop at a little known prior human sacrificial temple location and learn about Hawaii's ancient Gods, Kings, Queens, and priestly Kahuna. Listen to beautiful examples of uniquely Hawaiian instruments such as the slack key guitar and ukulele as we explore the bandstand, then take a profile pic worthy photo at Diamond Heads most photogenic location. Hear about the island's volcanic birth, and learn how the fire Goddess Pele created it all!
Hover to the Waikiki War Memorial and Natatorium, then glide over the sand along a palm tree-lined walkway to a favorite local beach Kaimana Beach. Take in the charming historic cottages and multi-million dollar mansions in the Gold Coast while learning about the architecture and real estate development of Hawaii. You'll stop at a nearly secluded beach, and we'll point out hidden bunkers from diamond head's military history.
Heading back, we'll stop at where one of the richest men in Hawaii in the '50s and '60s once lived, listen to nostalgic tiki pop culture comedy songs, ride through an Indian banyan that is over a century old, and learn about Hawaii's first and last king's. Try to guess Hawaii filmed movies and TV shows from their soundtracks while hovering along a canopy-covered trail of monkeypod trees.
You'll then glide along near the water with views of the world-famous Waikiki beach. Your island adventure concludes by enjoying the breathtaking beach views hovering back to our start location and listening to famous Hawaiian music, even a song composed in 1874 by the very last Hawaiian Monarch, Queen Liliuokalani!
