I have been following all discussions about Kealakekua Bay permit, and I'm not sure if guided tours would be available in Nov. or not. I already talked to DLNR on how to get Kealakekua Bay State Park SUP, which is free. If we rent kayak, where do we launch it from? (the wharf at Napoopoo is NOT an option)
Finally, is there any other better kayaking place on the big island? (if Kealakekua Bay doesn't work out) We are interested in watching sea life or caves from kayak...we are first time snorkelers, too.
