Located at the very edge of pristine Kahuwai Bay on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii’s Big Island, the iconic Kona Village Resort announces an “Ocean Promotion” theme for 2007. Each month, the resort will highlight a different aspect of coastal and marine life. This closer look at the elements of the ocean will extend to everything from water sports and activities to featured fare at resort dining rooms.

Beginning in January, executive chef Mark Tsuchiyama will present Big Eye Ahi (tuna) specialties as the star of the menu at Hale Samoa, the resort’s fine dining establishment.

For the month of February, island-fresh swordfish will make its annual debut in all kinds of sumptuous Hale Samoa dishes, and in March the delicate, delicious flavor of mahi mahi, which can be prepared in an abundance of ways, will headline as fish of the month.

Other monthly themes throughout 2007, in keeping with the Ocean Promotion, will include island fish such as Ono, Moi, Yellowfin Ahi, Kampachi, Kona Lobster and Abalone, Halibut, Opakapaka and Ehu.

January will see Kona Village Ocean Adventures offering excursions for viewings of enormous Humpback Whales wintering in warm Hawaiian waters.

In February, the resort’s new Ribcraft (Rigid Inflatable Boat) will headline the list of excursions, providing guests with quick access to more than 20 nearby dive sites, offshore snorkeling excursions and, once again, whale watching while the winter months last.

Outrigger Canoe Paddling will highlight the activity list at Kona Village Ocean Adventures in March. This year, Kona Village Ocean Adventures will also continue to offer guided kayak adventures, double-hull canoe rides, scooter snorkel and dive adventures, windsurfing, SCUBA diving, sailing lessons, and Keiki (children) surf lessons.

Kona Village Resort, located on 82 private acres that were once the site of an ancient Hawaiian fishing village, is an ideal location for guests interested in experiencing the bounty of the ocean. Its 22 oceanfront acres are home to 125 individual thatched-roof hale (ha-lay, or bungalows), from which guests can soak in the treasures of the sun and surf firsthand.
