A Typical Day on Kailua-Kona
On most vacations, you stay in a resort and dive with that resort’s in-house operator. Not so in Hawai’i, and especially the town of Kailua-Kona, where most of the prime real estate is taken up by oceanfront condos under management by companies like SunQuest Vacations (sunquest-hawaii.com). When staying at a condo, you'll need to rent a car and drive to the harbor, about 30 minutes away, to board the boat for your day’s diving. When the diving’s over, you can head home, sit back on your balcony with a cold one, and enjoy the views of honu hauling themselves up on your private beach.
