Two kayak companies return to Kealakekua Bay

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Department of Land and Natural Resources has approved permits for the return of two commercial kayak tour companies at Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park.

Starting April 1, Aloha Kayaks and Kona Boys are authorized to launch permitted commercial kayaks from Napoopoo Landing so guided tour clients can get across Kealakekua Bay and land a limited number of patrons at Kaawaloa Flats.

Conditions for these operations include limitations on the number of landings and areas of use at Kaawaloa, number of customers per trip, and duration of landings.

Vessels must also not deploy additional water craft from the boat, discharge passengers at Napoopoo Wharf or Kaawaloa, or contact or disturb marine mammals and other ocean life within the Marine Life Conservation District Bay.
