Big Island Keauhou Bay Kayaking and Optional Snorkeling Cave Tour
From US$99.49
Explore the magnificent cliffs, sea caves, and marine life of Hawaii’s Keauhou Bay on this 3.5-hour kayaking and snorkeling adventure. Set off on the calm bay waters in a kayak, and paddle through rocky sea caves and lava tubes for a better understanding of the Big Island’s geologic history. Splash under the clear-blue water to snorkel among coral gardens and tropical marine life, and enjoy a heart-racing finish as you jump into the bay from a towering cliff.
What to Expect
Travel to a launch point on the shore of Keauhou Bay after meeting your guide at the town of Honalo in the morning around 7:30a.m. Gear up with all the equipment you need, and set off into the calm waters in a kayak. No kayaking experience is necessary for this tour.

As you navigate south toward Kuamoo Bay, keep an eye out for local marine life, including spinner dolphins, sea turtles, and manta rays. Admire the gorgeous scenery of the rocky coastal cliffs and natural blowholes. Paddle in and out of sea caves, and explore ancient lava tube formations with a flashlight while your guide shares the stories of Hawaii’s volcanoes.

Drop anchor in a lovely protected cove, and put on a snorkeling mask and fins to explore the vibrant underwater world. Swim among intricate coral gardens to get a glimpse of electric-colored fish, turtles, eels, and stingrays. Replenish with chilled beverages and a snack back above the surface.

For an adrenaline-pumping finale, scramble up a rocky cliff, and gather your courage to jump into the deep bay water below. After soaking up the spectacular scenery and warm water, climb back in your kayak to return to the departure point, where your 3.5-hour tour concludes.

Fun but unprofessional

We signed up with this company because they advertised as eco friendly, which is important to us. They were also competitively priced. Since we have done kayaking previously, we were pretty sure we would like it no matter what, and we did. However, the staff...More

Jason, our tour guide, was well informed, funny, and super helpful! He was full of interesting facts and local knowledge (which plant leaves to use rather than spitting in your mask to defog). And very considerate of the dolphins (that literally swam right beneath our...More
