In response to 143458: cruise ships, posted by Fred M on Thursday, 22 August 2019, at 11:46 a.m.

A side note... Kona is the only port in Hawaii where the cruise lines must use tenders. This is due to our shallow port.

There was talk years ago (I don't know how honestly) about dredging a larger port north of Kona and allowing the ship to dock. I heard one suggestion about Kawaihae but that had to have been a joke as it is so far from town that nobody would make it to Kona.
