Jonny from Kailua Ocean Adventures is the best! We were out for at least 3 hours, visiting the Mokes and Flat Island. We even caught some waves in between! I live in Kailua and have been to the Mokes before in a kayak, but this was even better. If you're visiting the island, I highly recommend the outrigger canoe over... More

We had a fantastic time on our outrigger canoe trip to Mokes island. We love canoeing but wanted to try the traditional outriggers for something a bit different - it was fabulous, much faster than a regular canoe! Our guide was so friendly and knowledgable, he took us on a tour of the island, pointing out the wildlife whilst showing... More

We really liked the service and people at Kailua ocean adventures. We rented these cool retro looking bikes, which we used as our transportation for the week. The staff was so friendly and helpful, that we booked the canoe tour to the Mokulua islands with them as well. The water and weather were perfect for canoeing in Kailua. This was... More

This was not only an opportunity to paddle and explore the Mokes but to share an adventure with knowledgable and super nice guys while supporting a local Kailua family run business. They made the afternoon very enjoyable by personalizing the trip to our paddling ability and we felt safe due to their knowledge of the ocean. In addition to paddling... More

We went on the self guided kayak tour to Flat Islands and then Laniki Beach. It was a windy day and water was a bit choppy so it was very physically taxing. Enjoyed the staff at the store, great to go at our own pace and do as we wished. Really fun.

Captain Andy and Joi are the best kept secret in Kona! We appreciated the small group which made it like a small charter and extremely personal. Highly skilled and true professionals. We appreciated staying aboard until the mantas showed up, unlike the other guys. This strategy allowed us to spend our water time being awestruck instead of wasting energy and... More

Jonny and his team were great, they made our canoe ride a perfect day. They took us to the Mokulua Islands and canoe surfing near flat island. We especially like all the Hawaiian history and the information about the flora and fauna. We have such wonderful memories on the ocean and then even rented bikes to see wonderful Lanilkai and...

We had originally booked a kayak trip but it was cancelled because of recent legislation so our concierge recommended this instead. It sounded like fun so I booked it for the four of us (2 teens, 2 adults). We were picked up from our hotel in Waikiki by Joy who is the wife of one of the guides. She was... More

Took the family on the 3 hr morning tour to Mokulua Islands by canoe. If kayaking, this trip is not recommended for young kids due to the distance and often windy conditions. However, by canoe, the whole family was able to ride/paddle together with an outboard motor doing virtually all the work with windy conditions. We met Chris, our guide,... More
