We had a SUP lesson one day, then went out on the Kini-Kini double hulled sailing canoe the next day. Both experiences were excellent. Kona Boys staff are uniformly friendly and they know what they are doing. We highly recommend Kona Boys.

We had 6 members in our party and charted a 1 hour paddling tour out of Kailua-Kona with the Kona Boys. Captain Eric showed us how to paddle and described our outrigger in detail and how the Hawaiians used the canoe and how it is part of the culture. We then paddled out to the bay and saw spinner dolphins, nearby water cave, and Capt. Eric described in detail the history of the Big Island. We would definitely repeat when we visit again.

For my birthday this year (2/4) my parents brought me on their Outrigger Canoe and Snorkle trip. There were 5 of us ranging in ages from 43-85 and we all had a wonderful time! The guides were knowledgeable, entertaining and very attentive.

Had a fantastic time with Jared on the tour. He was flexible and let us spend the amount of time we wanted on each activity, while passing Hawaiian history and facts. Plus free use of all equipment for the rest of the day. The included lunch was yummy and we felt the experience was well worth the money.

These guys have the best prices on snorkeling gear. They are friendly and definitely want to close their shop on-time so be there early (we were). We checked the prices of one company on the small beach by the King Kam hotel. What a rip-off. Glad we had the blue book.
