My 19 year old son and I did the Kayaking and Snorkeling Tour. Our guide was Barry. Apart from the excellent snorkeling, with an abundance and diversity of fish and great clarity, Barry brought his love and passion to his work which made the experience absolutely unforgettable. Before we started, he gave us an overview of the local culture and... More

Highly recommended and a highlight of our big island experience. Hawaiian Pack and Paddle are professional and safe. They are also passionate about sharing their love for the Hawaiian paradise with visitors. Bari is not only a great kayak and snorkeling guide, he is also a gifted teacher who genuinely enjoys sharing his knowledge of marine biology and island history... More

Had a fantastic trip with Bari. His knowledge of the history and the area was remarkable. He picked us up and dropped us off at our accommodation in Kona for a small fee, and even took time out to point out a few things in the city. Although not the perfect conditions, the kayak and snorkel was still remarkable with... More

I strolled down from the Sheraton Kona, a short 5 minute stroll just before sunset. I saw a truck with canoes on it and headed toward it. As I did so Nick came over to me and introduced himself. With the canoes unloaded, and checked for all gear working we casually chatted while the other from the party arrived. Nicks... More

The real Aloha spirit is alive and well at Hawaiian Pack and Paddle... On the day my family chose to go on the tour, the surf was up, really up. Rather than considering only the lost revenue, our guide was more concerned with our safety. He left the decision to paddle out or reschedule up to us and recommended rescheduling.... More

Bari and his whole crew were awesome! They rescheduled our group of six to fit us in before the hurricane and helped us salvage some of our vacation. His equipment is excellent. With his help I traded my personal mask for one of his and it was better! We did the King's Tour. Bari is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating, friendly and... More

We took the tour out to the Captain Cook Memorial. Our Guide was Ola (love, love, love him) He was so knowledgeable about everything the group could ask him. My husband and I got to the store right on time which apparently was not a big deal as alot of the group arrived awhile after that, but hey, we're in... More

We took the Queens tour that is supposed to last 3 hours but ended up spending 5 hours there. We got plenty of information about marine life before and during the tour as well as historical facts. The kayaking to the monument was great, it did not last too long as it is very tiring but we still enjoyed ourselves... More

Me and my 8 year old son went with the guys last night and it was awesome. They were very helpful and attentive to my son (who is a good swimmer). We saw tons of mantas and created a great memory. The trip from the boat ramp takes about 15 minutes and wasn't very difficult. Especially since I did 95%... More

Easy to rent a kayak with no staff pushing towards a tour. While tours are offered, the option is available to rent your own equipment and explore. Very knowledgable and helpful staff.
