Clear Bottom Kayak Rentals in Kailua-Kona

Definitely a “Must-Do” if your on the main island. If your going to rent a kayak, this is the way to go. We paid for 2 hours for a 2 man kayak and they basically rented it to us for the day. We kayaked for about 3 hours. Definitely a good deal! They were very nice and accommodating. It was cool to be able to see the coral and fish below through the bottom of the kayak.

Helpful and friendly store owners. Easy and short walk to roll the kayak to the small cove beach entry by pier. Cove area was great to see a variety of tropical fish which made it worth it. The waves were a bit to choppy the day we were there to take it past the break so we just stayed in the protected area. Highly recommended!

We had a wonderful experience renting the clear bottom boats. Saltwater Soul is a beautiful shop and the owner was so welcoming and accommodating. It was such a fun experience!

We absolutely loved Saltwater Soul’s glass bottom kayaks! We love the water and we’re excited to see it from this view. We have a 1 year old who’s very comfortable on the water so we were happy to take her out with us (we brought her life jacket for the experience to make sure it fit). Lori, one of the owners, was beyond accommodating. The boat was in pristine shape. They provide you with everything you need, even a “fish identification card” to ID what you’re looking seeing. The experience was fantastic. We rented all day (9 am - 4 pm). Took it in and dropped the boat off to go get lunch. Then went out again in the afternoon. The water was perfect, clear, safe for a kid. We absolutely loved it!! Will do it again when we return to Kona!

These clear bottom kayaks are so cool! You can see more below through the bottom of the kayak than from above the water! We saw dolphins, barracuda, a shark and breaching whales! So exciting! The owners are really nice family people too! They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Thank you Lori!

We had an awesome time, the kayaks were very new and Cool Destinations/Groupon offered a great deal for the experience. $23 per person for a tandem clear kayak for an hour which was enough for us newbies. If you get the two hour deal you get to use the kayak all day long. We saw fish and corals.Check in did take about 30 mins so plan accordingly. Also note that you should be able to lift and push a little bit as the shop is across the street from the water, about 5-7 mins walk pulling the kayak and you will need to load and unload the kayak. Which wasn’t hard if you’re pretty able bodied or have help (I couldn’t have done it alone). My parents were able to manage they’re in their 50s-60s.The operator was super nice and they sell sand cloud towels too! Would totally book again and recommend to friends

Seeing the dolphins under water, literally under my feet was amazing, lucky for me whales are in season and saw them up close for the first time! The store is right across the street from the beach made it easy to load the kayak into the water, the kids loved it as much as I did and will be back next time as we come to Kona often! 5 stars
