Go Ocean Kayak­ing

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - WATERWORLD -

Ocean kayak­ing is a great way to slip away from the crowd 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 un­tip­pable kayak to sleek fiber­glass rac­ing kayaks. 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 Puako 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.
