Go Ocean Kayaking

Big IslandSea Adventures

OCEAN KAYAKING is a great way to slip away from the crowds and get lost in the irresistible tug of nature. Whether you RENT A KAYAK to go or BOOK A GUIDED TOUR with an activity company, expect to move through some of the island’s most-inviting seascapes and abundant marine life.

It’s possible to rent one- or two- person kayaks ranging from a wide, virtually not tippable watercraft to sleek, fi berglass racing models. Rentals usually come equipped with soft racks designed for any vehicle, and are able to handle up to three kayaks at a time.

Another option is a jet-powered kayak that speeds over the water at 15 miles per hour. These excursions begin at Puakō Bay.

Guided tours range from a lazy paddle along the North Kohala Coast to more adventurous tours on the South Kona coast, where sea caves and secluded beaches prevail.
