E Komo Mai,
Recently the 33ft 2015 built modern aluminum adventure cat “Lavakai II” was launched from Puako boat ramp and delivered her to the newest harbor in Hawaii Kawaihae South harbor slip SO1. As the first new harbor in the state of Hawaii in over 30 years it is a blessing and a privilege to begin commercial service to the Kona-Kohala coast. Conveniently located near Kohala & Waikoloa resorts we offer the best boat tours in Hawaii to see Whales, Dolphins, Manta Rays, and Snorkel Cruises to the best snorkel locations on the Big Island. Come see for yourself what makes this National Marine Humpback Whale Sanctuary so special.
Vessel “Lavakai II” offers luxurious seating with soft cushions and padded backrests, is 80% covered to shade you from the intense Kawaihae sun, has a full marine restroom and sink to wash up, dual boarding doors for easy water access, stereo system paid with hydrophones to hear whale songs, and unobstructed views from all seats on board. The Lavakai II was designed for Hawaiian waters paying detail to creating a stable vessel to shoot photo and enjoy your time out on the water. One trip out and were sure you will see the difference. Join us during the upcoming Kohala Whale Watch season.
