Overview

Kealakekua Bay, home to the Captain Cook Monument, is located on the coast of Kona and only accessible by boat or hiking. With this tour, take a relaxing lunch or dinner cruise to the hard-to-reach spot, and enjoy the included Hawaiian-style buffet, cocktail, and live entertainment.

What to Expect

Your cruise begins at the Kailua Pier where you board the boat for a 12-mile journey down the Kona coastline. Sit back and relax as a local historian shares stories about the landmarks you pass on the way to the Captain Cook Monument.

Upon arrival, enjoy a cocktail from the fully stocked bar and an island-style buffet. A typical buffet includes fresh fruit, assorted cheeses, salads and local breads for appetizers. For entrees enjoy kalua pork and cabbage, braised beef brisket, BBQ chicken, or veggie rice pilaf. Make sure to save room for dessert and Kona coffee. Additional cocktails are available for purchase.

Keep an eye out for dolphins, turtles, manta rays, and seasonal humpback whales. Take in the sites of Ahu'ena Heiau, Keauhou Holua Slide, and Kuamo’o Battlefield as you sail back to the pier.

Aloha Sally I, Our boat is certified to hold 149 passengers, and the fact that we sell out at 85 is by design. It's nice to hear that when we sell out a cruise, our guests still feel as comfortable as you describe! Thanks so...More

I’ve always been a huge fan of Old A’s (old airport) which is by the baseball fields near the public pool. It has a nice long sandy beach area right by the ocean and just around sunset it’s amaaaazing!
