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 instructions and some 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 from your guide about Hawaii's nature, history, and listen to nostalgic Hawaiian music as you hover from place to place.
Since you'll start at Historic Kapiolani Park, you'll first learn to recognize some of the most popular and beautiful island trees such as the blooming Rainbow Shower, fragrant Plumeria, and massive Indian Banyan Trees. 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 neoclassical War Memorial and Natatorium, then glide over the sand along a palm tree-lined walkway to a local favorite beach Kaimana. 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 next climb up the oceanfront side of Diamond Head to marvel at the panoramic vistas, look for neighbor islands and whales in winter months, and point out hidden bunkers from Diamond Head's military history.
Heading back we stop to sample some local snacks, hover under 100-foot palm trees at a quiet beach park, listen to nostalgic tiki pop culture comedy songs, and ride through an Indian banyan that is over a century old. Try to guess Hawaii filmed movies and TV shows from their soundtracks on the way to take in the beach views while we glide towards the setting sun.
When the sun set's we light up our hoverboards and hover with oceanfront views of Waikiki. To soak up the island ambiance, we'll glide back along the promenade listening to famous Hawaiian music, even a song composed in 1874 by the very last Hawaiian Monarch, Queen Liliuokalani!
