Come enjoy a kayaking and snorkeling adventure with us as we paddle down the beautiful and quiet Kohala Coast to our favorite snorkel spot. We usually end up snorkeling with turtles, octopus, or even manta rays, along with countless tropical fish on the reef. Sometimes we see spinner dolphins and from Jan-March this can become a whale watching tour!
Included on our tours:
masks, snorkels, fins, snacks, photos, life jackets (optional), water, kayaks and paddles. We also provide a dry bag to keep your keys and phones dry.
Description of tour:
After a brief safety and paddling demonstration, we launch the kayaks and paddle along the beautiful Kohala coast for about 20-30 minutes to our favorite snorkeling spot.
Once we arrive, we tie the kayaks up to a buoy and pass out snorkel gear. We carefully explain how to properly use the gear and how to get in and out of the kayaks (don't worry, anyone can do it and the guides can give you a little boost back in, if you need a little help).
Your guide will be snorkeling with you and can help you find and identify all kinds of cool sea creatures. We know these reefs like the backs of our hands and take you to the best spots for seeing marine life. After snorkeling, we get back in the kayaks and eat a light picnic of fresh fruit, snacks and drinks before paddling back to the beach that we launched from.
Custom/private tours also available with or without snorkeling and at any time that fits your needs. Best conditions are early in the morning. More experienced kayakers can request a trip to a cool sea cave that's a bit of a further paddle (ocean conditions permitting).
We meet up at a Puako public beach access where we become immersed in huge coral gardens within minutes. We also take you up the coast past gorgeous beaches into a protected marine sanctuary and explore hidden underwater coral archways and tunnels.
