We arrived on the cruise ship and were able to spend the day enjoying the beauty of Kailua-Kona. The outrigger trip was a real treat and can be enjoyed by everyone. The shops are always fun to visit and explore, but the Sunny Beach was a wonderful way to spend the day..

We booked this excursion through hawaiicruiseexcursions.com. Excursion was called: BIG ISLAND OUTRIGGER TOUR AND BEACH DAY EXCURSION. The outrigger tour itself didn't go out very far. It was interesting but I was expecting to go farther along the island. We stayed right there in the beach area. The beach was nice. They set up umbrella and chairs for you and also provide you with snorkeling equipment and explain how to use them. This was our first time snorkeling and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband didn't enjoy it as much. He has a mustache and beard so the mask wasn't as water tight and his flippers were too big. Again we snorkeled right there in the beach area. There was plenty of fish to see. The beach got pretty busy later in the day. There's lots of places to eat close by and a hotel that you can go in and use the facilities.

This was lots of fun! We snorkeled and swam in the morning and lounged on our beach chairs. We got burgers from a little restaurant right beside the beach, very good! Our boat ride left from our beach at 1pm and we cruised around, the breeze on the water was wonderful! We did see dolphins but they were at least 20 feet away, I was hoping for closer. I'd have to say that was my only complaint, it was a wonderful day, wonderful tour. Highly recommend!

I have never heard of an Outrigger canoe ride before but it looked fun so we booked this tour in Kona. We had a fantastic experience. Our guide was a very knowledgeable and we learned a lot about Hawaiian culture and history. We even saw a family of spinner dolphins which was a real bonus. All of the staff were extremely helpful. We highly recommend this tour and will definitely use their services again.
