    If you are comming this way it’s ok, don’t come just for the park…as you will be dissapointed. It is interesting to browse for about 30-45 minutes.

    This well-sheltered cove has excellent access to fish, coral formations & swimming with turtles & was a twice return spot for us & will be again! Drive from Kailua on Allii Hwy through mtn coffee area & south of Capt Cook Bay follow signs to Refuge/Park then turn right across tiny bay from it -& with luck park under trees. Easy access over flat rock at ‘two steps’ into deep clear water -usually calm but heads up timing small/moderate swells on entry/exit to avoid bumping rock-face. You may well see divers & turtles way below you in clear water when snorkeling! However If you dont want deep water & have smaller kids there are in fact far-more accessible very shallow little bays with more dense numbers of fish & turtles at the beach/park w/facilities further up the coast just north of the Sheraton.

    Lovely location and the snokeling at two step (same location) is famous for it’s turtles and plenty of coral, however I expected to see more fish and it’s not safe for kids at least where all the adults go, there is a little black sand beach near the boat ramp. Do visit for the refuge is very pretty and kids can swim in tidal pools until i found some water snakes in one but these pools are a few hundred yards from two step. If family swimming is on the days agenda read below. I found a more protected area great for families and snorkeling b/c of the break-water further out to sea keeps it relatively calm-fish everywhere and turtles in the shallows. The underwater footage here brought me back three times during my vacation. Head to kealakekua bay, no admission, lifeguard and Sam Choys grill nearby 🙂

    Beautiful! And the park has a very Interesting history. There’s usually a park ranger guide giving daily presentations of the park’s history. She’s excellent – if you sit in to listen, you’ll be glad you did (it’s maybe half an hour long). A must-see when exploring the Kona/Captain Cook region of the Big Island.
