Beekeeping and Honey Tasting Tour

Location: Kona, Big Island

Expand your knowledge of our environment and go on an exploration of bees! Join our beekeeper for a fun & educational exploration about bees, beekeeping, & honey.

What to Expect

During this open beehive demonstration, you will see a live beehive opened & learn where the queen resides, how honey is made, & what makes bees so special--all from a safe, screened area.

Make sure not to miss out on the chance to taste delicious raw Hawaiian honey when you take our Beekeeping Tour. We offer free honey samples so you'll get to savor the different varieties of honeys made from the nectar of the Big Island’s unique flowers. We hope you'll enjoy it even more with a greater understanding of the process of making it available to you.

You can also browse our store full of honey, beeswax products and beekeeping memorabilia.
