Experience Kealakekua Bay’s beauty and wildlife on either a 6-hour or 3.5-hour kayaking and snorkeling tour. Your guided Big Island adventure starts at Napoopoo Landing, where you’ll hop in your kayak and paddle through the bay toward Captain Cook Monument at Kaawaloa Point. Along the way, catch glimpses of playful Hawaiian spinner dolphins while you soak up the tropical atmosphere. Keep your eyes out for the occasional humpback whale, too!
As you paddle, your guide will tell you the historical background of the island and point out natural features like the Pali o Kapu o Keoua (towering sea cliffs), Napoopoo Beach and the remains of the village of Kaawaloa.
When you reach Captain Cook Monument, leave your kayak on the shore and spend time exploring the great Hawaiian outdoors! On the 5-hour tour, you’ll have two hours of snorkeling time (one hour each in two separate locations) and one hour of hiking before refueling with lunch at the monument. The 3.5-hour abbreviated tour includes the same, but with only one hour of snorkeling and a quick snack instead of a lunch break.
Both options end with you and your guide kayaking back to Napoopoo Landing.
