BOATING AND KAYAKING

The calm waters near shore around Kona are excellent for boating. Farther out though currents and winds make boating more challenging so you won't find a lot of cruising sailboats or interisland boating in the Hawaiian Islands

Boat Tours

There are several operators offering dinner cruises, sunset cruises, and other boat excurions. During the winter you'll also find whale-watching trips. Another possibility is go on a snorkel trip even if you don't plan to get in the water.

Kayaking

To see more of the island, try kayaking. Keauhou Bay is located a short walk from the condo, at the west end of King Kahmehameha III Road. The harbor is close to some impressive sea caves and cliffs just south of Keauhou Bay, easily accessible by kayak. Boats can be rented for a very reasonable cost right near the water from Ocean Safaris. You can rent kayaks to explore on your own or join a guided tours, but be sure to watch the currents and tides and be aware of the weather.

In South Kona, visit the marine sanctuary at Kealakekua Bay and at Captain Cook, where Hawaiian spinner dolphins are spotted regularly in the early morning.
