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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
