We rented a kayak from some locals near where Napoopoo Road meets up with the coastline. We were charged $60 cash. We paddled across the bay in about 20-30 minutes and got out and snorkeled near the Captain Cook monument for almost two hours. As we neared the shoreline we could see coral and lots of fish below us. The... 更多
Although "going it alone" by renting your own kayak is still possible, it is being highly discouraged by the state because of too much activity in the area near the Capt. Cook memorial. We went with a group of 5 scheduled through "Kona Boys" and as a result we were able to actually go ashore at the memorial, which you... 更多
We used Adventures in Paradise to Kayak through the beautiful bay to Captain Cook. We kayaked through a pod of wild dolphins which was sooo cool! The water is very clear hear and the coral is colorful. Plenty of fish. All I can say is go early! Adv in Paradise was the first in the bay other than a few... 更多
History fans and Snorkelers unite! This place is amazing. Go early!!! It got crazy crowded by 10am. We had the place to ourselves from 7-9. We did the Adventures in Paradise Kayak and Snorkel. Our guides local historical overview was learned at a bar and ridiculously long considering how much we paid to snorkel- not listen to amateur hour. Try... 更多
Absolutely beautiful snorkeling. The water was crystal clear and saw a large variety of fish. Also had incredible bonus of seeing a large pod of Spinner Dolphins in the bay. They were doing their signature spin as well as one was doing backflips in the air. It was worth the price of the ticket to Hawaii just to see this... 更多
AMAZING! We took kayaks thru the bay, then snorkled and had lunch. There were hundreds of dolphins. The coral reef was pretty cool too.
the snorkeling in the bay is beyond terrific. our best place so far has been next to the place of refuge. multi coral and a zazillion fish. kayaking has been fun. the dolphins have made appearance in a cove near capt cook monument. it is off the beaten track of hilo and kona. few tourists. quiet.
Being our first time, we set up a 1/2 day kayak/snorkel trip w Kona Boy, one of the 3 outfitters for the Kealakekua Bay. The leaders, Laura and Lauren, were great. We loved the trip across the bay and encountered several Spinner dolphins, one of which did, indeed, spin above the water in the air. . We landed ashore at... 更多
Lots of people, but once in the water you can swim away from the masses and still see lots of reef fish. And turtles. If you are really lucky you can swim with the spinner dolphins. We saw them spinning one day and another time swam out to be with them. Below, on each side, and if you swim down... 更多
If you can only snorkel one day on the island, this is a must! Take the Adventures in Paradise kayaking tour and be brave and take the first tour of the day. You won't regret it.
