Captain Cook

Kayaking & Canoeing · Water Sports · Bodies of Water
A small town with big ocean views, Captain Cook lies on top of an ancient fault line that was responsible for creating the nearby Kealakekua Bay thousands of years ago. Named after the unfortunate explorer who landed and died nearby, the site remained part of a sprawling private ranch for most of its history. Today, the town of about 3,000 serves as a convenient base for snorkeling, kayaking, and scuba diving. Because it sits between 240 m (800 ft) and 610 m (2,000 ft) above sea level, the town and surrounding area is ideal for growing coffee. To taste some of the region's finest brews, visit one of Captain Cook's many roadside coffee roasteries and tasting rooms.
