Hula Daddy Kona Coffee is the winner of the 2016 Kona Coffee Cupping Competition and the 2015 Hawaii Cupping Competition. Hula Daddy sells roasted coffee beans that have been grown on its own plantation. We offer coffee tasting, farm tours and roasting demonstrations by advance reservation only.
Coffee tour was at 10 AM. Met by an extremely knowledgeable guide who took us through the process of coffee production and why Hula Daddy coffee is special. Great coffee tasting experience which on its own was worth the price of admission.Aloha Steve Lexi enjoyed meeting you and giving you a tour. We are so glad you had a great time. Think of us when you get home and drink our coffee. Mahalo Karen

Anelakai Adventures is a Big Island, Hawaii adventure company. Our Night Manta Ray Canoe Snorkel off the Kona Coast is a once in a lifetime experience. Skip the big crowds and go for a local Hawaiian experience — there’s no better way to meet mantas than by traditional canoe! Our double hull canoes let you snorkel with manta rays in a whole different way — in a small group, and at your own pace. You’ll feel more relaxed and safe, which will let you concentrate more on the beautiful wonder of nature that you can only see in Hawaii. Rays can live 50 + years and grow to 15 feet across and weigh more than 3000 pounds. Snorkel with the Manta, or stay on the canoe and watch from above with a close-up view you cannot see from a large motorized boat. Mantas love our quiet, Eco-friendly canoe! Let us share our passion and love for the ocean with you and learn a little Hawaiian history. Kayak Tours, Daytime Ocean Tours are also available. Book now and explore Kona the way our ancestors did!
A friend was visiting from Seattle and swimming with the Mantas was a bucket list item for him. I had already heard from many others that the experience with Anelakai Adventures was truly unique. So 3 adults and 3 kids decided to give it a try. It was amazing!! To begin with the experience of paddling your own vessel was incredible! The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable. We loved the small personalized group sizes. I was surprised that both of my daughters got into the water. One liked it so much that she keeps asking when we can do it again. It also inspired her to join a local canoe club. Thank you so much for the remarkable and memorable experience.

Heavenly Hawaiian Coffee is perfectly perched in the hills south of Kona so that growing conditions are ideal and views are spectacular. Chase was very knowledgeable and personable and provided an informative and fun tour. We then had the opportunity to relax on the Lanai and enjoy a cup (or two) of their amazing brew while snacking on coffee brittle and taking in the glorious view of the Pacific. And of course we visited the gift shop and stocked up on treats, don't miss out on a bag or two of that delicious brittle!

Eka Canoe Adventures is the most unique way to experience Hawaiian waters along the Kona Coastline. Onboard a recreated historically accurate Hawaiian double-hulled sailing canoe, your experienced crew shares generations of knowledge in an old Hawaiian way, “story telling”. Guests are invited to paddle, sail or just kick back and enjoy their journey through History.
What a great time! The mantas were so beautiful and the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. We saw 3 rays and they came super close to us. The guide even took video for me so I could relax and enjoy the encounter. Highly recommend this experience and this organization.

Popular Hawaii beach for snorkeling.
Some of the best snorkeling on Hawaii. This is a great family beach with a little something for everyone — snorkeling, surfing, reasonable beach area, life guards, showers, bathrooms, and even a food truck.
Water entry can be tricky, as any of the rocks under the water at the shore tend to be slippery. This is one of those places were you are better off to ‘belly-in’ as soon as the water is a foot deep to avoid slipping on the rocks. Once thru the narrow inlet, there is plenty to explore.
There is a great variety of fish. Some of the areas are difficult to get to at low tide, so be sure you know whether the tide is coming in or out before swimming over the shallow areas. For the non-snorkelers there are rocks on the left side that you can carefully walk over to see a number of the tidal pools and even spot turtles in the shallow water.
There is a reasonable amount of off road parking, as well as additional marked parking spots. The beach is just south of little St. Peter’s church.

This is one of those "come visit us if you can find us" places. So great to visit a coffee plantation that is so down home and simply doesn't have the "commercial" feeling at all. It is located in a gorgeous, very quaint surrounding. The host in the store/visitor center was simply wonderful. She was so friendly, gracious, informative and courteous. She made you feel so welcome to be there and provided all kinds of samples for us to try, ranging from coffees to candy, to honey. At no time did we feel that there was any "pressure or expectation" to buy. Of course, after sampling the great products, how could we NOT buy some of the great products. The coffee was so, so good. Also, a neat tour personal tour of the plantation is available on an ATV for only 5.00 per person.

This is a small coffee plantation. Hideki was very friendly and educational. He knew a lot about coffee and shared willingly. We tasted the coffee and found it smooth and rich. We bought a one pound bag as our souvenir to the plantation. The chocolate coffee beans are also delicious.
