Visit Kona: Big Island Abalone

If you're looking for something interesting and educational to do while on the Kona coast, book a tour with Big Island Abalone!  

We were hosted for a tour as part of Na‘au, and there turned out to be several tourists who joined the tour, and they were very interested in abalone, asking a lot of questions and taking lots of pictures!

We learned about how the access to deep sea water and the abundance of sunlight creates an ideal environment for abalone production.  Big Island Abalone produces over 100 tons of abalone a year!

We saw lots of live abalone of all different sizes.
Big Island Abalone producers Ezo abalone, a type of abalone found off the Hokkaido coast, and they feed on dulse, which Big Island Abalone also produces.
At the end of the tour, we got to taste some abalone.

During the week, they have a truck from which you can order abalone dishes!
