I rented the triple kayak for myself, husband, and 10 year old about a week in advance. Turns out that day had a high surf warning. Ehu & Kai were totally flexible, let us have the kayak the next day instead. It was terrific, that next morning the water was still and the dolphins were out, even jumping out of the water, spinning. It was such a fun experience, the kayak and gear were included in the price, we could have had the kayak all day but returns after about 3 hours. Do go early (we went at 8 am) as it can get crowded at Captain Cook around 10 am.

Staff was so friendly, we had a double Kajak and we saw dolohins in the bay and snorkel with them. Snorkeling at the Monument was also Good. Thank you very much.

We rented 4 double kayaks for 4 adults and 4 children (ages 10-18). This was probably the best 4-5 hours that we spent on the big island. Mikey at the loading site was both extremely friendly and helpful in all aspects. He outfitted us and thoroughly briefed us both on the method for snorkeling from the kayaks and the orientation of the bay. We could not have asked for a better day. We encountered hundreds of dolphin that performed for us in every way possible. They seemed to be curious of us as they would come up to the kayaks giving us the once over. Swimming with wild dolphin in the wild was something that is unique. One of our kids called it the best experience she had ever had and that it was magical watching them swim under water. Pretty cool coming from a teenager! We could have spent the whole 5 hours with them. However; the snorkeling near the monument was some of the best we have experienced in the Hawaiian islands. Overall the best bang for your buck on the island. Great area, great equipment, great people and overall great experienc!!

We had a very nice time paddling in a kayak in the bay. We saw many dolphins. The owners were very nice people. I recommend!

We had two kayaks for about 4 hours. The instructions of the Ehu & Kai staff were very helpful and we could leave our excess stuff with them. The kayaks were easy to manage and we had a great time checking out the bay and snorkelling.
