We went on line and traced a now canceled historic walking tour of Wileahea. It made a boring town super interesting!!

Parking was barely adequate, although a couple of spaces were taken up by people apparently living out of their vehicles. Monument to Captain Cook requires a pair of field glasses to get a good look.

We were able to view the monument and bay where captain Cook was killed as we were on a Body Glove Dinner cruise eating in the bay.

The landing site is just an area of coast, which can be seen from the Russian Fort, and no real reason to visit. The memorial to Captain Cook is located in the town, adjacent to the main road. A statue with a commemorative plaque recording the discovery of the Hawaiian Islands and a first landing at Waimea, January 20 1778.

The Cook Monument is touted as a tourist stop, but watch out. You need to follow a trail down to the beach which is steep and of course is very steep kiking back up. You should be fit. If you are fit enough and capable of snorkling, the site offers pretty good opportunities to see fish. If you are not fit, stay away. It's hard hiking to see a monument.
