I wasn't interested in all the land activities here, but the open water swim course is great. There are buoys marking the 1.2 mile round trip, and the boats (generally) stay away from there. Great opportunity to swim in crystal clear water with fish and...More

Saw a ton of fish, people had seen manta rays. Need to swim off of beach behind King Kamehameha hotel and go to right to avoid boats. Was surgy that day and felt like it would have been safe to bring inexperienced snorkelers.

It's the pier in Kona where you get on/off boats. Not sure why we are even reviewing this. Most of the positive reviews are reviewing things that aren't part of the pier. As a pier its ok, but nothing exciting. Restroom is stinky. NO reason...More
