“Being Lazy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

What a fun spot to just sit on the sea wall and watch the boats, people, and just scan the bay, we just relaxed and ate a shave ice. There are alot of super fun little shops and a couple of great restraunts across the street to venture into. If you are there in the evening somtimes you can hear and see just a little of the Lua out on the point.

“the pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

The usual stuff to buy. But once you are there for a while, you really get into the culture. Had to have an Aloha shirt and new swimsuit.

“Great place to eat by the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

This area is a great place to visit on your first few hours on the island. There are multiple restaurants to eat at next to the water. There are also a number of businesses that offer water sport rentals, cruises, and other activities. This is always the first place we go when we visit Kona.

“Bodyglove Snorkel Cruise Highly Recommended - Kailua Pier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

My family had a great time on the Bodyglove Snorkel Cruise. My 4 and 7 year old children felt safe and comfortable on the boat and would like to go again. They look forward to being 8 when they can try Snuba because it looked like a lot of fun. The cruise accommodations were very pleasant and enjoyable and there was a great variety of snacks, meals, and drinks. Ashley and Janaka were very helpful in making sure we had vegetarian meals for our special diets.

I was very impressed with every member of the crew. They were very professional, courteous, and charming, always working together gracefully to make sure everyone was happy and safe. If I could remember all of their names, I would say them all because every one of them did such a great job serving the guests and making sure the cruise a very pleasant experience. Mike made my kids laugh when they were first adjusting to being on a boat, and all of the crew members helped them feel safe and comfortable while cruising and swimming.

I cannot say enough good things about the Bodyglove Snorkel Cruise and the crew that made it so much fun! I highly recommend taking this cruise when you're in Kona for a fun and memorable experience. Mahalo Bodyglove Cruise! ~Christina Jung Bishop

“Busy Pier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

This is just across from our hotel and is used to dock a lot of the tour boats. It gets really busy. You can take pictures from the dock for island and beach views. We saw dolphins right at the pier as well.
