Best Kayak & Snorkel Tour on Big Island!! Definitely must if you interested in seeing great underwater biodiversity of Big Island

Reviewed by: Laura & Djani Drocic, 2016/05/30

At the time we made this reservation my wife and I did not realized that this would be a best thing we did on our vacation. From the moment we met our Guides, husband and wife Kevin and Noni O'Conner we were treated with such care and attentiveness to our requests and needs during the whole trip. I would highly recommend that anyone interested into snorkeling on Big Island to look for King Kayak Tours. To start with they specialized in small groups tours, that day it was only us!! We enjoyed this trip a lot more that any other snorkeling tours that we were on previously. Location where we did go was close by to our launching point, we had seen a lot more tropical fish and turtles that anywhere else. Equipment was a top notch, snacks provided during the tour ware excellent and plentiful. We absolutely love it, and this would be one of the tours that we would do it again just to be in such a great and knowledgable company such is Noni and Kevin. Added bonus is that they bout are fluent in Japanese, and are offering tours for Japanese speaking tours as well as for English speaking groups. For Laura and I this was such a special treat since it was our wedding anniversary that day end memories that were built during this tour will stay with us forever. Another note, don't worry about photos during the tour they have great camera and they will be taking photos of you so you could focus on enjoying your self.
Once again thanks so muck Noni and Kevin for making our Special day even more Special!!

Lovely time with whales

Reviewed by: suiki, 2015/04/07

We are visitors from Japan. I participated the kayak and snorkel tour in Puako with my son (10-years old) and wife. The instructors are thoughtful persons paying kind attention to us all the time. After 15 min guidance on a shore, we sailed out to see whales and play snorkel. We saw a number of (several dozens, if my memory is correct) whales from the kayaks. We were so surprised to see these whales at the close distance (but not dangerous). Later, we parked our kayaks at a buoy and played snorkeling. At the beginning, my son was a bit frightened to do it because of the depth (about 10-m), but soon realized it's very safe not only because of the life jacket but also because of kind help of instructors (they pilot the kayak close to us during snorkeling). Needless to say, we saw very beautiful scenery of colorful fishes, octopus, and coral reef. After the snorkeling, we enjoy sailing with kayak again. My son felt so comfortable and slept soundly on a quiet ocean. I visited the Big Island many times, but this is the best marine activity. I strongly recommend the tour!
