Go Ocean Kayaking
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 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. • Adventures in Paradise Snorkeling Trips
