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.
