Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We booked the morning kayak tour to Captain Cook. It was exceptional- will be one of our favorite memories this trip. Staff at Kona Boys were warm and welcoming at checkin. Our guide Evan was knowledgeable, engaging, participatory without being intrusive- all the best in a guide. The scenery was beautiful and we left feeling like we knew more about the history of the island. Highly recommend!

    I joined a small group lesson, and thanks to these great folks, I got up and surfed multiple waves! The others in my group did too!

    On land before we went out, Max taught us techniques for popping up, from lying flat on the board to standing. Then, I was paired with Santi out on the water, and he gave easy-to-understand directions and pointers customized to me. Santi was patient and supportive - what an awesome experience!

    There are a few companies that offer surf lessons at the same price at Kahaluu Bay. I totally recommend these folks over the others. The colorful building is easy to find, they walk you directly across the street to get in the water (couldn't be closer!), they've got all the gear you need and a freshwater shower, and - I already mentioned - the instructors are super. 100% five stars from me!

    This past August my wife and I made our very first trip to Hawaii. I wanted to go all out no holds bar and try and do everything and experience everything that Hawaii had to offer and I just about did! I went deep sea fishing, flew in a helicopter, enjoyed a very nice luau, & visited a lot gorgeous beaches! But I will have to say the funnest and coolest thing that my wife and I experienced in Hawaii was renting a dune buggy from “Big Island Buggy” & spent the day driving all over the Isalnd and going from beach to beach exploring new places. Feeling the cool ocean breeze blowing thru your hair & feeling the warm glow from the sun kissing your skin. WAS AMAZING!!! We are planning on heading back soon to the big island and I am planning on renting out Buggy from “Big Island Buggy” every day that I am there.

    Customer service…excellent!!!
    They delivered the buggy to where I was staying at and the owners of this company where so flipping cool. They rental of this buggy so fun and easy and they were so helpful and informative of where we should g and what we should do on the Big Island. They gave us a map and drew on it were we should go and where we shouldn’t go.

    To Big Island Buggy rentals:

    Mahalo!

    This group of young men were kind, attentive, and very well organized. We were very impressed and had a really great time. We saw turtles and an octopus! This is the tour operator to pick!!

    The light up see through paddleboards are a fun and different way to see the bay and watch the underwater life. While we weren't lucky enough to see large fish we did see schools of minnows and needle fish that literally jumped on our boards. Despite some murkey water the guides made the experience the best it could be. The sunset was a beautiful addition.
    Paddleboarding isn't for everyone. My wife got seasick because the water was a bit choppy. You don't have to stand on the boards and sitting or kneeling worked just as well but it does require some level of fitness to row the boards. Overall we recommend it if being on the water doesn't bother you.

    Booked a kayak rental for 7 AM with a different operator. When we got there, the guys we booked with have not arrived yet. Luckily, Bay Side Adventures were there. After calling my original booking, they asked Bay Side Adventures to cover my group of 3 people.
    Cyrus was very friendly and helpful and got us on our way to Captain Cook monument. We even saw a pod of spinner dolphins near the monument.

    Rented a double kayak and went to Captain Cook. The kayak worked great, I they recommend you tie rope around wrist. I tied around waist and had plenty of rope to even dive down, so I had both hands free. Super friendly. Will use next time we come.

    Jeff is very easy to work with. Dropped off and picked up our bikes from the place we were staying. Gave some good tips where to ride. Bikes were in great shape and worked well. Great places to ride long or short. Leave early if possible.

    Dived with these folks in 2014 and tried again today. Phone disconnected and neighbour across highway tells us they've moved back to France. We loved Miriam and Alain.

    Steve, Aki, and Bruce were great and super friendly!

    We wanted to go snorkeling on our last day at the Sheraton and they were really understanding in letting us keep the equipment post-check out to make it easier for us to return!

    We had lots of fun and would definitely come back to rent from them again!

    Having a bike to either do some serious biking (Ironman here I come - NOT) or to just cruise around the Waikoloa area is a great thing to consider doing here. It's fun to experience the neighborhoods by bike but be aware that there are actually not too many opportunities to bike in Waikoloa. You will have to go on the main Highway (19) and bike for example to the Mauna Lani Beach Club. We had a small issue with one of the bikes we rented but got that easily fixed without any problems. Great store also to buy bike related merch including some fantastic bikes!

    Highly recommend Brian and team! We rented 3 of the 50cc scooters and just had a blast. We went much further than anticipated. Best money we spent the whole vacation! None of us knew how to ride prior, but that was no issue...Brian taught us each individually how to ride.

    This is the place to go if you need anything for the beach. We rented beach chairs, umbrella, snorkeling gear and boogie boards for the week. The prices were excellent and the manager was so nice and helpful. We wish we had gotten a cart to haul all the stuff to the beach…next time. I highly recommend going here for any of your beach needs.
