Paddling Kona’s clear, pristine waters since 1994, Ocean Safari’s Kayak Adventures have introduced countless visitors and Kama’aina (Island Locals) to the fast growing sport of kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and paddle-surfing. We focus on small groups of adventurers, making safety and fun top priority. Every Kayak tour is different and may include dolphin and whale watching, snorkeling, sea cave exploration and maybe even cliff jumping. You may see tidal pools filled with eels, sea turtles and colorful tropical fish while wild parrots can at times be seen flying overhead. Join us for a night snorkel with manta rays!All our guided adventures are led by experienced watermen/women who are Hawaii Lifeguard Certified and we are fully insured. Ocean Safari’s Kayak Adventures assist with water safety at Kona’s annual Ironman Triathlon as well as other water events.

What a wonderful experience out exploring on the open ocean, through sea caves and bonding with the various sea creatures when snorkeling in the deep turquoise and cobalt blue waters.

Beautiful day. Highlight for the kids was jumping off the 30 foot rock cliff. Our guide, Paola, was fantastic. Best of all, kept he watch over everyone so I didn't worry about my kids.

Had a great morning on the water and the availability of snorkel gear was just a surprising extra. Happy our guide was fun and informative. Great excursion and the gear was all in good shape.
