Kealakekua bay - how to NOT tow a kayak when snorleling?
Hi
I'm staying at Cooks in July. I plan in kayaking in Kealakekua Bay as much as possible. I know landing kayaks in the bay isn't allowed but I was looking at govt maps and see that the protected area ends at Cook point just past the monument. Is it legal / feasible to land a kayak outside of the protected area and swim back to snorkel?

Or could I anchor a kayak in zone B of the bay where I read you can as long as it's in sand and swim in?

As you can tell I really don't want to tow a kayak behind me when snorkelling.

Thanks much.

It's not a good idea to anchor your kayak outside of the bay and swim in because the currents are too strong, so it's too dangerous. You could join one of the guided kayak tours that take you there (which are authorized to land at Ka'awaloa). Check out the official government site that lists three authorized Kealakekua Bay kayak tour companies: http://dlnr.hawaii.gov/dsp/parks/hawaii/...companies.
