There were 5 of us (little ones included) and we chartered an outrigger canoe, complete with a guide (Jessa), for $174 for an hour to paddle out to watch the dolphins play. It was great. The dolphins came right up close to the boat. We enjoyed every minute. The Kona Boys offer so much more than the outrigger canoe ride such as kayaking, snorkeling, paddle boarding, surf boards, rentals and lessons. They are located right at the international pier in downtown Kailua-Kona, Hawaii which is walking distance to everything.

We used these guys for equipment rental for our wedding and they were FANTASTIC!! They were very easy to work with, which was awesome since everything had to be done via email. They were super professional, gave great recommendations on places to go, and activities to try out. They also did a fantastic job co-ordinating our equipment pick up and drop off. They were the best vendor we dealt with for our wedding, super awesome nice people.

Last week on Thursday we went on a kayak and snorkeling adventure with Kona Boys. I met both owners and three different employees over three visits. All were helpful from making sure we had really good gear for snorkeling to recommending local restaurants. The kayak and snorkeling with AJ could not have been better. I highly recommend Kona Boys.

Our family vacation was in Kona Hawaii this year, my husband and I, and my daughter 23 and son 20. I scheduled the Day at the Beach with Kona Boys after reading reviews on trip advisor. What a great decision! Jessa was our guide for the day, and she is awesome. What a wonderful personality and so patient. We had a wonderful time and most of all we did not feel rushed at all throughout the day. It was so relaxing and we were able to go at our own pace. I would recommend this excursion for a little taste of everything. We kayaked, had standup paddle boarding lessons and snorkeling. We had an added bonus of swimming with the dolphins. The view of the mountains and the island from the ocean was breathtaking. The location was perfect and it's good for all ages. The entire staff was so friendly and attentive...a must if you visit kona!

Was told by our resort manager to go here to learn to paddle board. Boy was she right. Very knowledgeable staff and it's located right on a calm bay which allowed us to get use to the board before heading into open waters. They also validated parking, which parking is a premium in this part of the city.
