Default Can you get an excursion at Kona Pier

We are arriving in Kona aboard the Carnival Spirit. Are there any excursions available to book from the pier? The ships excursions seem to have funny times like 11am departures which seem to waste a couple of hours in the morning. Also has anyone taken the Parker Ranch tour? Would this give us a good overview of this coast? I have every other port planned but this one is giving me trouble. Had thought of renting a car but seems traffic, and rental agency is not convenient, to much time wasted. Any and all suggestions welcomed! Thanks Karen

YOu can get tours at any Hawaii port, including Kona. All kinds of tours. I don't know about Parker ranch. Driving in Kona (Hawaii) can be tricky, small roads & lots of traffic.

There is a kiosk right adjacent to the pier, or you can just walk a block or so and they pop up everywhere. We just did a walking tour and had lunch at Huggos on the Beach (oh and the shuttle to Walmart, too). So I would say this was one of our low-key port stops.
