Captain Cook performed the first Christian ceremony on the Hawaiian islands, a funeral service for a crew member.
Later he was killed across the bay in an altercation with the native Hawaiians. The monument placed a hundred years later marks the location. It's only reachable by a strenuous hike or by boat.
In our travels we have followed Captain Cook across the Pacific to Easter Island and to Hawaii.
