Having chosen the tour length that works for you, meet your guide at the selected time in the town of Honalo. After a safety briefing, board your kayak and head out toward the Captain Cook Monument and Kealakekua Bay.
While paddling, listen as your guide points out and explains the coast's features, from the towering sea cliffs of Pali Kapu o Keoua to Napoopoo Beach, and the ancient remnants of Kaawaloa village. Keep an eye out for Hawaiian spinner dolphins splashing and leaping by the shore. In winter, you may also spot humpback whales breaching in the distance.
Upon arrival at the Captain Cook monument, pull your kayak up on the shore and embark upon a scenic hike before snorkeling in the waters of Kealakekua Bay. Enjoy lunch or a snack by the monument (depending on tour selected) before paddling back to Napoopoo Landing where your tour concludes.
