Activity Highlights

Join us on a 3.5 hour kayak and snorkel adventures starting at Napoopoo Pier at beautiful and historic Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park. We provide kayak gear and instruction and then help you launch your double kayak for the trip across the bay to our snorkeling spot at Awili Cove near the Captain Cook Monument. Along the way we oftentimes see Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins which we typically stop and watch with insights into their habitat and behavior. We provide exclusive state permits to land near the Captain Cook Monument which you will visit and snorkel from the pier. We provide snorkel gear and instruction and your guide will help you find the best spots to snorkel safely and see the myriad of tropical fish and coral gardens below. After snorkeling, we provide bottled water and snacks before heading back to our starting point. Join us for this popular and interesting adventure in paradise! Paddlers age 10-65 are welcome, but be aware the paddle across the bay is 35 minutes of strenuous paddling & guides set a brisk pace. Kayakers often times capsize & a significant physical effort is required to right the kayak and complete a push-up to reenter the kayak.

  • Both the tour guides were incredibly knowledgeable and so so helpful! My parents came along and were very nervous to go kayaking/snorkeling and they did everything to make them as comfortable as possible. They took care of us so well - helping clean off and bandage little wounds from the rocks (after our kayak flipped over), they even helped out a little kid who wasn't part of our group! Super positive the entire time! Can't say enough good things about this experience and the guides. We even got to see a baby shark while snorkeling.

  • What a great tour! The kayaking was not too strenuous. Our family of 4 (mom, dad, 2 teenage daughters) had a blast! First time snorkeling for our kids and they had no problem. Guides Caesar and Miles were so helpful and a wealth of information on nature and culture. Reef was amazing! Thank you!

  • The guides are great. The reef is beautiful and the sea kayaking is awesome. We were lucky and had a pod of dolphin swim with us on our way back. Highly recommended.

  • Kayaking to the Captain Cook monument. Very calming experience. JC and Adam were very friendly and willing to assist a rookie like me and family.
