About Captain Kimo

I was born and raised in Hawaii, from the country in Kahaluʻu.  I first started my real commercial boating career at Heʻeia Keʻa Pier in 1965.  From there I worked on many different boats, fishing, diving, salvage, charter boats, and Tugs.  I retired in 2012 as a Tugboat Captain in the Oil and Fuel industry.  Continuing my passion in the Charter boat industry and sharing my love of Hawaii with the tourists as I have done for years, I decided to start my own non-profit tour company.   Captain Kimos Hawaiian Adventures is a Hawaiian Culture and Ethnic Awareness company that shares these stories while touring the coastline of Hilo, on the island of Hawaii. 

I share these stories with the tourist guests, kamaʻainas and especially the youth, to continue and perpetuate our profound Hawaiian Culture.   Not only do my guests enjoy the moʻolelo (stories), but they also get to participate in a part of the Hawaiian Culture, taking back with them even some olelo (Hawaiian language).

Other Interests

Captain Kimo loves to take people fishing for Big Game, such as Giant Yellow Fin tuna (Ahi), Mahi Mahi, Ono, and Marlin.   When the time permits we also Bottom Fish for Snapper, etc.


Captain Kimo also loves to share the thrill of sailing on his Waʻa (canoe) as you skip across the crystal clear ocean, enroute to his favorite snorkeling or swimming spot.

Each tour begins with an introduction in Olelo Hawaii (Hawaiian language), introducing yourself and others.   Next is the Aloha Oli or Chant to announce the beginning of the tour.   This is done out of Respect for all the elements around us, so we may proceed in safety, and enjoy the tour.
