Marine sanctuary with the most amazing snorkeling.
Soooo many fish!
You are supposed to have a permit to pull your kayak ashore, but this seemed ignored. Careful of slippery rocks. There is a plaque in the inlet to the left of the monument. Watch for dolphins and eel.
The hike back up to the road is a BEAST! Bring water!
Not a hike for the those who aren't in shape. Almost killed us. DO NOT hike back up mid-day when the sun is beating.
Given the cultural significance Cook had on the antipodes, it's remarkable how little signage etc there is to the monument. We finally chanced upon finding it but only from Kealakekua Bay
Take the hike it's not bad, best snorkeling on the big island.
Favorite place on the kona side of the island for snorkeling. Lots of beautiful coral and sea life to see here!
Don't bother taking a paid boat ride out here. Rent kayaks. It's cheaper and more adventurous.
Great snorkeling area. No sand, all rocks.
Take a kayak over. Don't forget your snorkeling gear, excellent diving in front of monument.
The Snorkeling is great. Bring water shoes to get in and out! The hike back up is no joke, bring plenty of water and sunblock.
Пешком идти более часа по застывшей лаве, так что нужна комфортная обувь. Питьевая вода также не помешает.
