Home to many Hawaiian chiefs over many years and Captain Cook’s death, Kealakekua Bay hold a special place in the hearts of all who visit it.
This bay was once a center of Hawaiian activity, sometimes filled with hundreds of wooden outrigger canoes and thousands of Hawaiians. Across the bay at Ka’awaloa, many ali’i (royalty) lived and ruled.
Today Kealakekua Bay retains its beauty, however it is no longer filled with huts and villages. Instead, the waters are a Marine Life Conservation District and the shoreline is a mix of public park, beach, and private housing.
The snorkeling here is fantastic, as is whale- and dolphin-watching. Getting to spend an afternoon on Kealakekua Bay is always a privilege.
