What You Can Expect

Big Island Keauhou Bay Kayaking and Optional Snorkeling Cave Tour

Finish your tour with an exciting jump into the water

Begin your fun-filled kayaking, snorkeling and cliff-jumping adventure at Keauhou Bay, the birthplace of Kamehameha the Great, a former Hawaiian king. Your local guide will provide you with the necessary equipment to start your outdoor adventure. Paddle into the calm and picturesque Keauhou Bay, where you'll receive more equipment and safety instruction.

Kayak south away from Keauhou and head toward Kuamoo Bay. During your journey, you'll have the opportunity to encounter dolphins, manta rays and turtles swimming in the pristine water. On the way, admire the beautiful natural scenery, such as the soaring cliffs and blow holes. Kayak into Kuamoo Bay and explore the mysterious sea caves.

Continue paddling along the coastline, where you will pass coral gardens and underwater lava tubes. Take a flashlight and explore the lava tubes in the cave. Next, you'll arrive at a cave in a protected cove, where you'll drop anchor and snorkel over the colorful coral reefs and explore the busy underwater world. Get up close to sea creatures and look for parrotfish, yellow tangs, eels, stingrays and green sea turtles.

Finish your adventure with cliff-jumping! Climb up to the towering cliffs and jump into the deep water for an unforgettable experience. Relax and walk over to the tide pools to watch the eels hunt crabs. Bask in the warm sunshine and soak in the magnificent views. Then hop back in your kayak and head through the smooth water back to Keauhou Bay, where your tour ends.

This adventure made our trip very memorable! We kayaked and snorkled with manta rays during the day (which is rare), kayaked 2 miles along the coast, learned history about the area, snorkeled in a cove, jumped off a cliff into the water, and kayaked back. An excellent workout and adventure!!!

We had a great time with Aloha Kayak! Our guide, Cricket, was a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the area. He was really patient with our young girls and helped them quite a bit. Thank you for a great trip!

This trip was amazing!! Booboo and Rabbit were awesome tour guides. I would recommend them for sure!! They were so much fun, and knew their stuff. They made us laugh and we really enjoyed our trip with them. Kayaking was kind of tough, but they were patient with us. :-)

We had a great time kayaking. We saw dolphins, plenty of fish and even a small reef shark! Our guide was great and knew all about the area. They take care of everything including transporting the kayaks and lunch. One of the best kayaking adventures we have ever taken!
