Our B&B's owner recommended Kona Boys for a half day kayaking and snorkeling trip in the bay where the legendary Captain Cook visited and met his demise. We took a chance and booked an afternoon trip which is when the visibility could be iffy but far fewer people, which we prefer.
We really lucked out! Their were only two couples, including ourselves, and our very informative guide, AJ. The kayak trip over to the Captain Cook Monument was an easy paddle. The toughest part was getting in and out of the kayaks, so wear water shoes! AJ shared Hawaiian history about the bay as we leisurely paddled to the other side where we snorkeled. I am a diver and have enjoyed some beautiful water experiences, but I must say this was fantastic snorkeling. You will snorkel in a shallow reef abundant with coral and colorful fish. If you want to be more daring, you can swim out to the edge of the reef and look down into the deep blue sea to possibly see bigger sea life. The land around the monument is off limits to all but a few companies, and Kona Boys is lucky to be one of those companies. Also, their equipment is in great condition. The company is very safety conscience, so wearing a life jacket is not an option. I would definitely do this trip again!
