We took the 2 1/2 mile hike down 1800 feet to capture the tranquil scene of Captain Cook monument and Kealekekua Bay, where we had both an eagle ray and a sea turtle "fly on by". The footage will serve as a historical lens into the time of COVID-19 as there are no charter boats in the bay, save for one who brought his friends to snorkel.

This video is part of our "365Kona Moment" series.

If you want to see the hike and the bay during "normal" times, here is our longer form video from March 2019: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-oZtY1-_BY
