- a picture of me at Kealakekua Bay. Captain James Cook entered the sheltered waters of Kealakekua Bay on the morning of Jan 17, 1779, during the height of a local religious festival. He was welcomed originally but behaved rather badly and in the end, Cook was surrounded and killed at this very spot. There is a monument on the spit of land were the original village was, and it is only approachable by rugged foot trail or by water. Hence the kayaks!
