Snorkel Captain Cook Monument

Kayak among dolphins as you cross Kealakekua Bay, to the village site where Captain Cook was mistaken for the Hawaiian god, Lono. Cook Monument is a premier snorkeling site. You can also get there by horse, or hike a steep and difficult trail 2 1/2 hours. For $40, you can rent a double kayak from Pineapple Park’s grass shack in front of the hotel. It’s about a 30 minute paddle to the Cook Monument. Tow your kayak behind you as you snorkel with your mask and fins.
