An Authentic Big Island Sailing Experience

A major part of the allure of the Big Island of Hawaii is the meaningful sense of community and rich history that we islanders share. At Holualoa Inn, we are never more proud than to have valued local partners to refer our guests to, who exemplify these ideals. We are delighted when they come back again and again with the most effusive praise for the outfit, and having experienced something special.

Big Island Canoe Trip

Wa’a Kini Kini on the Sea

One of our favorite local outfitters is Eka Canoe Adventures; A truly unique and unforgettable way to snorkel the endless colors of our coral reefs, sail along our stunning coastline, or have a once in a lifetime encounter with the manta rays that glide the night waters along Kona.  Eka Canoe Adventures welcomes guests aboard Wa’a Kini Kini, their 40-foot replica of a Hawaiian double-hulled sailing canoe. With dozens of outfitters up and down the Kona Coast, Eka Canoe stands apart not only with their phenomenal customer service, but their inclusion of “Talk Story” that brings the history and rich heritage of the land to life before your very eyes.

Their morning “Kealakekua Snorkel” could bring you up close and personal with turtles, dolphins and whales, while their midday “Historical Sail” will bring the stories & legends of Hawaiian lore to life while you navigate those very same waters. Their sunset sail is a stunning and romantic way to relax and soak in the pure rugged beauty of the Kona coast, while their nighttime snorkel immerses you in the waters of Keauhou Bay for a once in a lifetime wild encounter. They even offer a “Manta Guarantee” for a free return trip if no mantas are spotted on your trip!

They have private charters available and are passionate supporters of Hawaiian cultural programs like the Nakoa Foundation, which imparts the importance of history and sustainability to the youth of Hawaii.
