About this Kailua-Kona, Hawaii tour
No one can blame you for wanting the beachside paradise of the Kona Coast all to yourself.
After all, with its gorgeous waters, huge variety of undersea life, and interesting landforms, this part of the island holds some treasures that are best kept to yourself.
Begin the excitement by boarding your Zodiac boat, a zippy watercraft that will keep you safe and secure. Your pirate crew will ensure that you have a jolly roger of a time while onboard.
Snorkeling at the bay with just a few other human souls is an experience like none other. You'll hear nothing but the gentle rush of water and the sound of your own breath as you glide through the underwater sanctuary of one of the most significant marine preserves in Hawaii. While human crowds may be small, you'll have plenty of company, including turtles, eels, rays, and schools of colorful tropical fish.
Here the treasures aren't all below the surface. On your trusty Zodiac, check out the interesting and textured rock formations that were created by scalding magma flowing through these areas over thousands of years. These ancient relics of volcanic activity, once considered sacred by natives in the Kingdom of Hawaii, are now the perfect setting for a unique adventure.
Though the state has 750 miles of coastline, few are as varied and historically significant as the Kona Coast. And on this small group tour, it's all yours.
A Nice Final Resting Place
The Hawaiian name Kealakekua translates into "path of the gods," which makes sense when you consider that ancient Hawaiians used the sea caves and lava tubes as burial grounds. Their remote, difficult-to-access locations ensured that those laid to rest next to the beautiful bay would stay undisturbed for eternity.
