Fun, quiet, safe, local-flavor Kealakekui Bay / Captain Cook Monument tour and snorkle.
, Apr 2021
Ehu and Kai Adventures offered exactly the small, personal experience we were looking for. We wanted to take a boat tour in the Kealakekua Bay and do some safe, supervised snorkeling. Uncle Peter and his crew thought of everything, from full snorkel gear, flotation devices, snacks and drinks and even a sun umbrella on the canoe! Uncle Peter shared his local knowledge and folk lore with us as he taught us how to paddle. We totally enjoyed the morning tour as there were no powerboats in the bay when we got there and the lack of a motor on the canoe allowed us to hear the waves, the trees in the breeze and the dolphins breathing as they came up for air when Uncle Peter blew his conch shell. I only give 4 stars as there is nowhere to use a toilet before you start your 2.5 hour tour so make sure you do you business before you head to the tour, and parking can be a bit challenging as the tour outfit is at the end of a narrow neighborhood street. All things considered we would do this trip again and again and recommend it highly.

Double booking through Viator! When we arrived 10 minutes prior to departure time, the guide did not see our reservation and he kept telling us “oh man, we always have a trouble with Viator” and he scrolled his phone screen up and down and told us “I don’t see your reservation, can you come back tomorrow morning? “ Well, I reserved and paid over 3 weeks before the event for 4 people and we had other plan the next day. After all my husband and one our two sons went to canoe as only room for 2 available and the other son and I just sat at the bench near the shore for 2 1/2 hour ... what a waste! I’ve requested a 1/2 refund. Tour guide is knowledgeable according to my husband.

We had an amazing time on this canoeing and snorkeling tour. We would definitely recommend this to our family and friends and would do this tour again when we come back.
