This activity will end right where it started.
Check in with your guide in the early morning at a pre-arranged location in Keauhou Bay. Your lifeguard-certified guides will start the trip with safety instructions and tips on paddling your kayak.

Then climb aboard your boat and paddle along the coast, stopping to explore sea caves and to search for the resident spinner dolphins that frequent the area. You’ll take a break at two of the coast’s best snorkeling spots, allowing you to slip beneath the waves to explore colorful coral, more than 50 species of fish and, if you’re lucky, a variety of marine critters like Manta Rays, Hawksbill and Green Turtles, and Humpback whales (seasonal).

If you haven’t had your fill of adventure and activity, there will also be time for on-land exploring as well. Depending on the day and timing you may also get to check out local features like ocean ‘blowholes,’ lava tubes, and local attractions like ‘The Elevator’ and ‘The Rings.’ More daring group members can even do some cliff jumping. You’ll return to your starting point by the late morning, allowing to beat the afternoon heat.

Excellent experience!

Kayaking off the Big Island
, Oct 2021
Very nice trip. Our host Kevin was punctual, helpful, professional and obviously new the best places to take us. Particularly liked kayaking the cave and jumping off the lava rocks into the ocean. Definitely recommend this tour and really like experiencing the sites while also getting in some exercise.
Fun above and below the water
, Oct 2021
Kevin combined one of our favorite activities (kayaking) with some Hawaiian special twists including snorkeling, cliff jumping, and exploring a cave. It was nice to head out early to have relatively calmer waters. The gear is specially suited for ocean kayaking -- loved the high back seat, handy oar leash, etc. We also really appreciated the small group excursion and Kevin's numerous tips. We saw a variety of fishes snorkeling, found the cave experience unique and exhilarating, and truly enjoyed the water both above and below. Very much recommend for all experience levels.

The Best Way to Start your Day!
, Sep 2021
Our tour guide, Kevin, made the experience amazing! He helped us feel comfortable in the kayak and alerted us of any potential dangers to keep us safe (we are not used to being in the ocean). He has some great stories and Hawaii trivia to share along the way. We were not too excited about the early morning start, but it was so so worth it. Seriously, rock jumping, a lava tube, and amazing snorkeling, and all in a small group; I would highly recommend!
Kevin is fun and very...

Beautiful vistas and amazing outing
, Aug 2021
What a wonderful time with Kevin! A lot of paddling and I was out of shape, but everyone else in the group did just fine. The cliff diving was memorable for my son and the snorkeling was terrific! Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend our first half day on the Big Island.
