We went on a snorkely trip to the Bay. You can't access this bay from the shore. You'll either have to rent a kayak from an approved provider (limited number) or book one of the boat tours. It is well worth it. We booked a...More
If you’ve ever skin-dived before or if it’s your first time, this is a wonderful cove. The water is crystal clear and at a depth of only 3-10 feet you can find a decent number of multicolored tropical fish of various sizes in the reef...More

You can’t take your own, or rented kayaks to Kealakekua Bay. The only way to snorkel is to pay for a boat excursion, or a kayak guide through a licensed company. You can hike a couple of miles to the Captain Cook monument from the road with your snorkel gear. We paid for a kayak guide and were the only ones snorkeling for about an hour until an excursion boat arrived.

Yes, the older gentleman’s name is Derrick, he owns Kona Kayaks and can set you up for a kayaking trip at the bottom of Napo’opo Rd. It’s a fun adventure to kayak across the bay. Don’t forget to bring your snorkel gear, as there is excellent snorkeling by Cooks Monument and you may get lucky enough to see spinner dolphins that frequent the bay.
