One of the best things about living in Kona, Hawaii is the ocean. With the Kona Impact office a block away, we often find ourselves going for a stroll and looking out at the magnificent Pacific Ocean.
One of our new clients runs a glass bottom boat tour tour from Kailua Bay. What we love about Gus’ boat and tour is that they allow people who may not be interested in or able to snorkel or scuba dive a chance to see the wonders of the Kona coast. With hundreds of endemic fish (i.e., found only in Hawaii), spinner dolphins and green sea turtles, there is plenty to see from the boat. Add to that some lovely pencil sea urchins and centuries-old coral heads, and you have an underwater world that is like no other.
The other great thing about the tour is affordability: it’s only $40 for adults and $20 for children under 12–the best value in Kona for any tour.
The boat is also available for special charters like school trips, company outings and for memorial services (including scattering of ashes).
So, if you’re in Kona for a vacation, make sure you check out Kailua Bay Charters–www.konaglassbottomboat.com.
