Hilo Bay Kayak On Your Own
Step back in time as you kayak along the Hamakua Coast in the serene waters of Hilo Bay on this kayak adventure. Your self guided tour includes a kayak rental that you'll use at your own pace to explore the scenic area and coasts of Hilo Bay. See the luxury homes along the coastline, make a stop at Coconut Island and take in the gorgeous garden views of Queen Liliuokalani Gardens. It's the perfect tour for the independent tourist who is looking for a self-guided water adventure.
Start your water adventure by picking up your kayak at your rendezvous point across from Reeds Bay Park, where you'll get easy access to the public bathrooms and Hilo Bay. Grab your kayak and set sail to explore the scenic view as you sail past the Hamakua Coast and take in the breathtaking views of the crater of Mauna Loa--a majestic volcano with wintertime snow-capped mountains and overlapping pit craters. Continue your journey and gaze on the beautiful green spaces and floral arrangements of the Queen Liliuokalani Gardens. With its Japanese gardens, teahouses, and rock gardens, this landscaped park offers breathtaking views in a serene setting.
Your kayak adventure will also take you by Mokuloa, which is also known as Coconut Island--the small Hilo Bay island that is known as the healing island in Hawaiian and a part of the Liliuokalani Gardens. Legend has it that the island has healing powers and has helped improve the health of the sick who swim around the island three times. Land on Coconut Island for a quick picnic or go snorkeling before heading back to return your kayak and returning to your port destination. Just remember to rent snorkeling gear at the kayak rental location and plan for your picnic before you head out.
From breathtaking garden landscape views to a relaxing picnic on Coconut Island, there's much to do and see on this water adventure. Sign up for this exciting self guided kayaking adventure today and get ready to take in the sights of Hilo Bay for an unforgettable experience.
