ACTIVITIES:

Snorkel A.M.

Pawai Bay has an excellent variety of tropical reef fish and dramatic terrain, with ledges, caves, shallow shelves and steep drop-offs; and all coral encrusted lava formations. Frequent visitors to the bay are manta rays (up to 10 feet across!), spotted eagle rays, and green sea turtles. Depths vary from 3-4 feet on the shallow ledges to blue water where the bottom disappears at 100 feet. Average is about 18 feet. We specialize in non-swimmers and first time snorkelers, because we think everybody should get in the water and experience Kona's spectacular underwater beauty. We have excellent floatation devices, a wide assortment of quality silicone masks and snorkels (including prescription lens masks for the near sighted), rubber fins from size 0 to 14.

Manta Ray Snorkel P.M.

Rays are most often encountered as solitary individuals, but members of this species, when feeding, often aggregate up to 50 individuals, cluster in regions offering predictably rich feeding at night (such as off the Kona Surf Hotel). The cephalic lobes are unfurled and spread (directing and sometimes apparently scooping plankton-bearing water into the mouth). The animal often swimming in slow somersaults (vertical loops) that are repeated over and over (this behavior may keep the rays within a patch of particularly rich feeding, and may also concentrate plank tonic prey to facilitate feeding); and off Yap, in the western Caroline Islands).

Snorkel P.M.

Pawai Bay State Fisheries Management Area is where we've brought visitors for over 30 years. The Fisheries Management Area means two activities are illegal - tropical fish collecting for export and fish feeding by humans. Both of these activities upset the natural balance on the reef, hence they are banned. The bay is inaccessible by car and is within the Queen Liliuokalani Trust lands at Kaiwi Point.
