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.

*Likely to sell out: Based on Viator’s booking data and information from the provider from the past 30 days, it seems likely this experience will sell out through Viator, a Tripadvisor company.

    This was a wonderful experience for us as first time snorkelers. The three employees that helped us with our gear, and took us out in the water, also gave very helpful, snorkeling tips. They were all very courteous, respectful, and patient even to this group of six seniors. we definitely recommend this company.

    Our guide (Montana) was the best. It was only our second time kayaking and she was patient with us. Now we can say we kayaked through a waterfall!

    Kayaking for a little over a mile to Kealakekua Bay (and back) with this kayak-and-snorkel combo adventure was amazing. And, the snorkeling in these protected reefs was the best we experienced on the Big Island. We were a family of four, two parents and two adult children and definitely recommend and do again!

    This was the best thing we did on the Big Island! We like to be active and learn about the places we are visiting, and the 5 hour Kayak + Snorkel with Aloha Kayak Co. ticked all those boxes. We were lucky to have owner Iwa as our guide. He knows so much about local history, and I enjoyed his anecdotes about growing up on the island. The water was a bit choppy, and landing the kayaks and even getting out of the water after snorkeling was not easy for us beginners. We felt taken care of by Iwa. He gave clear instructions and helped us navigate getting in and out of the water. I was impressed with the thoughtfulness at providing water and snacks before and after paddling, in addition to the lunch. I highly recommend kayaking and snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay with Iwa and Aloha Kayak Co.!
