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.

Our family had a great time kayaking and snorkelling on this trip. We had experience kayaking but not on the ocean so the big waves were a bit intimidating at first. Our guide Haoli was great, really friendly and reassuring. We didn't get to go into any sea caves as the waves were too high which was a bit disappointing.... More

My wife was very nervous about ocean kayaking but with the guides help and a tandem kayak she was good to go. Definitely the best activity for your money. In fact we are doing it again before we leave. Kevin Gifford

Devon and Keahe did a great job. We really enjoyed the kayak and snorkel. Even the snack was fun as we got to see some of the small sea life along the waters edge.

This was a very fun trip. Our guide Hau'oli was excellent! He was very friendly and made us feel comfortable in our trip. It was my parents first time kayaking and they were very nervous at the beginning but he made sure they felt comfortable and enjoyed their trip. I would definitely recommend Ocean Safaris

This was a most informative tour, with an excellent mix of excitement! We went with one adult and one 5-year old in each of two boats. The quite was excellent and provided a good mix of information and activity. Very much recommended.

Ocean safaris Kayak Adventures guides did a great job making our time on the water fun and safe. Our guide was a native of the island and was very friendly. Our family of six adults and couple on their honeymoon made up our group. One of our family members got seasick and our guide (I wish I could remember/pronounce his... More
