Captain Cook, Big Island, Hawaii: Hawaiians Kill Captain Cook
RoadsideAmerica.com Team Field Report
- Napoopoo Rd, Captain Cook, Big Island, HI
- Requires long walk over loose rocks; wear hiking shoes and bring a walking stick. At Captain Cook bear right (if heading south) from Hwy 11 onto Napoopoo Road (Kealakekua Bay) and quickly park along the road. Walk downhill. You'll see a rock wall on the left, which is part of a fancy house up the hill. Immediately opposite the wall's driveway and mailboxes is the entrance to the trail, on the right side of Napoopoo Road, which has been mowed through the tall grass. Walk down to the ocean, bearing left at the bottom to the Captain Cook Monument. Budget at least three hours to walk there and back.

We visited the site by kayaking in the bay. It was an amazing outing, with dolphins swimming around us. I recommend going very early before the tourist excursion boats go.
