Keauhou Bay is located in beautiful North Kona on the Island of Hawaii, fronting the Outrigger Kona Resort and Spa. This historic area was the birthplace of King Kamehameha III in 1814. He was the second son of Kamehameha the Great, who united the Hawaiian Islands in 1810.
This area was once a hideaway for Hawaiian royalty and today, there are many restored heiau (Hawaiian temples) and sites in Keauhou that should be treated with the highest of respect.
If you’re looking for things to do in Hawaii, Keauhou Bay is best known for being a gathering place for manta rays. The graceful manta rays are harmless to humans and come out at night, feeding on plankton. Sea Paradise was one of the original manta ray tours in Hawaii, helping guests experience swimming with the Keauhou manta rays since 1985.
