Kealakekua Bay is a culturally sacred place to the Hawaiian people, rich with history and not without controversy. We are lucky to be allowed to provide tours in Kealakekua Bay and feel that it is our responsibility to share some of that history while enjoying the Bay's majestic beauty. Know for it's marine diversity and coral cliff, the snorkeling is some of the best on the planet. When you aren't looking down at the display of colorful reef fish, you'll gaze over the surface of the most protected deep water bay in the Hawaiian Islands, surrounded by dramatic cliffs and coco palms. We are one of only three companies that provide kayak tours to this amazing destination and we pride ourselves on providing the best customer service, equipment, and knowledge to ensure that you get the most enjoyment out of your time in the Bay.

We were lucky enough to have a private morning magic tour simply because no one else had booked the trip for that morning. The tour guide greeted us at the launch site at the bay with some excellent kayaks and was very polite. Tyler had some great stories to share about the

Kona Boys offer a great, effortless experience to Kealakekua Bay. Remy was our kayak guide in early March 2020 and was easy to hang out with, gave clear direction, was engaging throughout the trip, and fantastic with my two 10yo kids. The morning magic tour was the perfect

Tyler was an amazing guide! Our morning started at the shop with a brief orientation by Frank. He was super helping fitting our equipment. We drove down to the launch site where we met Tyler and had a wonderful paddle across the bay stopping to see dolphins and to hear the

Had a magical morning with Tyler & our fellow kayakers! It was a beautiful day, the ocean was calm, and, to all of our great delight, we were honored with a spectacular show by a group of adult & baby whales! One in our group counted EIGHTEEN tail slaps in a row by one whale.
