Hiking and Kayaking with Lodging on Kealakakau Bay
What better way to break away from the mainland
winter than to take a trip to Hawaii?
Our lodging on the warm Kona Coast is a gorgeous
large house right on the water on Kealakekua Bay, well-known by
locals as one of the best snorkeling spots in the islands. Temperatures
are usually in the 70s and 80s.
We'll hike across a lava crater in Hawaii Volcanoes
National Park, visit waterfalls in magical Waipio Valley, and relax
on a white sand beach by a blue lagoon where you can swim with huge
sea turtles. In the evenings we'll return to our comfortable house
to watch the sunset and feast on pu-pus (island appetizers) and
Pacific Rim cuisine.
Our local guides will give you an insider's view
of the Big Island, and they'll turn out fabulous feasts for your
dining pleasure. Our menu features the bounty of the islands, such
as grilled fresh-caught fish, platters of tropical fruit, and macadamia
We'll also have a kayaking overnight on the south
Kona coast near an old native Hawaiian fishing village. Beginners
will have no problem with this easy paddle, and if you want more
kayaking you can go further down the coast. On previous trips we
have seen dolphins, turtles, myriads of colorful reef fish, manta
rays, shark, and whales with their young.
Whether you're a beach potato or an avid hiker
and kayakeryou'll love this great escape from the mid-winter
blahs! Price includes lodging, ground transportation, most meals,
kayak trip, and more.
