Kona, Hawaii Ocean Activities Travel Guide

For many visitors to Hawaii, trips to neighbouring islands are often their second visit to Hawaii. For better or for worse, many people visit the Waikiki area of Oahu first for their first vacation, and then for subsequent vacations visiting the main neighbouring islands: Kauai, Maui, and the island of Hawaii. Each island has its own tastes and activities. This article will focus on things in or out of the water in the Manta Ray Snorkel Tour.

The Kona Territory of the island of Hawaii is the area in the lee (western) portion of the island of Hawaii, which extends from the southern tip of the island to about three-quarters of the west coast in the north. Nearly everyone in the Kona area lives a few miles from the sea, as the interior is dominated by the Mauna Loa and Hualalai volcanoes.

The best place to start a trip idea to Kona, Hawaii is from the ocean. With 50 miles of coastline and nearly all of the island's visitors living just a few miles from the ocean, Kona, Hawaii is a sea lover's paradise.

For those who prefer to stay afloat, Kona has known the world over for some of the best gossip fish in the world. This includes many species of marlin and the so-called canvas fish. The biggest catches are often in the thousand-pound range. 

Other small fish that are often caught in Kona waters include tuna, mahi-mahi, and ono. The only way to fish in Kona waters is by charter fishing. Shared rentals, most of which depart from Honokohau Harbor, are the cheapest option for spending half a day or a full day on the water.
