Want to climb a volcano and find hidden waterfalls? Want to swim at night with manta rays, and by day with wild dolphins? Maybe you want to hike Mauna Kea, surf Kohanaiki, and soar over molten lava fields by helicopter all on the same day? If you can think it, you can do it.

Inspired by our optimal climate and the beautiful natural playground that surrounds us, Kohanaiki is a perfect base camp for adventure; as synonymous with adventure today as it was for generations past. And our A-Team (Adventure Team), led by Ikaika Kanuha, will organize everything to ensure that you enjoy the very best the Big Island has to offer.

From ocean sports to horseback riding and deep-sea fishing, to organized activities and personal tours, our A-Team, which includes a world-champion long-boarder and former professional surfer, will customize itineraries for all ages and levels.

Organize a ride you will not forget or a day of deep-sea fishing on the Kai Kea, our 39’ Yellowfin Yacht, or try your hand at outrigger canoe paddling, standup paddling along our mile and a half of shoreline, or experience some of the best free-diving on the island.

“We were only out snorkeling on-property for a short while and saw everything from sea turtles and Puffer fish to brightly colored Angelfish and a rainbow of others I couldn’t name.”

Just Luxe

Think of A-Team members as your personal guides to all of the island’s attractions, culture and history—everything the island has to offer on land and sea. They have mastered the art of ensuring you’re always prepared with first-rate gear, learning new skills, and gleaning a richer understanding of island culture along the way.
