We loved our day in Kona. The outrigger tour was excellent, our guide was from Kona and he told us a lot of interesting stories about Kona's history. we paddled around in the Hawaiian canoe and some dolphins came up beside the boat. very cool. we had reserved beach chairs, umbrellas and snorkel gear, we relaxed on the beach and snorkeled in a little cove. we loved our day in Kona :)

I have to say this is one of the best days we spent as a family on the Big Island in Kona. The guys that run Kona Boys were fun, informative and very nice. They set us up on the beach with chairs, umbrellas and snorkels. Be prepared for the water to be cold until you get past the Hawaiian Temple - the little area is spring fed but you get used to the water very quick. Because it is so nice and calm there the snorkeling is amazing. There are so many fishes and different things to look at under the water you could spend days there. Uncle Jesse took us on our Outrigger tour and it was so much fun, his stories were awesome (fortunately, we had been to other places on in Hawaii and were used to hearing people speak in Pidgin...so we understood Uncle Jesse pretty well) He is 91 and could run circles around most people. This was a great stop for us and very family friendly. I would go back in a heartbeat.

We picked Kona for our beach day. We figured at least one day of our cruise should include relaxing at the beach and we liked that this tour included having beach chairs and snorkel gear but that we also got to go out on the outrigger boat. We had the added bonus of getting really close to a couple fo dolphins, which made the wife really happy!
