Head out into the waters off Kona, HI for an intimate whale-watching adventure from our 24-foot rafts, which give you a front-row seat and move fast so we get into viewing position quickly.
This also means the rafts can take a little splashing during transit, so we suggest wearing clothing that can get wet (such as swim suit and cover up or windbreaker) and for camera/video equipment some waterproof protection (plastic bags or backpack).
This district on the Big Island of Hawaii is home to several nation and state historical parks at places like Kealakekua Bay. Kona is also famous for its special Kona coffee and being the host of the Ironman contest.
