Kayaking Tours on "The Big Island" of Hawaii

There are 9 products in this category that range in price from $50.00 to $239.00.

The calm waters, abundant sea life, great snorkeling, picturesque sea caves and beautiful weather surrounding the Big Island of Hawaii make it an ideal location for Big Island kayak companies to operate a variety of Hawaii kayak tours.

The most exciting locations for kayaking on the Big Island are to be found off the Kona coast of the Big Island. Here kayaking in the lee of the giant volcanoes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea you'll find the tranquil waters to be crystal clear and teeming with sea life. Don't be surprised to see dolphins, turtles, perhaps a manta ray or even enjoy whale watching (yes, from a kayak) in season. Snorkeling is particularly great as well and can be done right from your kayak.

One of the great kayaking and snorkeling spots off the Kona coast is the famous Kealakekua/Keauhou coastline. A number of kayak and eco-tour companies paddle their way along this historic (Captain Cooke was killed here) and beautiful coastline complete with rugged sea cliffs and spectacular sea caves. Some companies even allow a supervised version of cliff diving when the conditions are considered safe enough on your kayak tour.

Kayak tours are among the most marine intensive of all the ocean activities available to you on the Big Island. You generally can choose a single or a double kayak and your snorkeling adventures off the kayaks will be some of the most rewarding to be found on any of the islands. Some companies also offer various hiking tours in conjunction with your kayaking adventure.



Pride of America Cruise Ship: Big Island of Hawaii Kayak Tours do not pick up at the Cruise Ship Dock. You can make arrangements for some of these tours by having Tom Barefoot's Tours organize a rent-a-car for you that will pick you up at the dock. You should be careful to make certain that these kayak tours are late morning or early afternoon rides to allow enough time to get back to the ship. These would be available to you on the Tuesday from the port of Hilo or Wednesday from the port of Kona....

Look for this symbol in the tour descriptions below to indicate if it is Pride of America compatible.
