Imagine…..Three snorkeling locations in one sparkling Kona day. Journey 22 miles down South.

Big Island Snorkel Tour Features:

  • Snorkel Kealakekua Bay (Capt. Cook Monument)
  • Snorkel Honaunau Bay (Place of Refuge)
  • Snorkel a 3rd remote location based on conditions
  • Lunch, snacks, juice, and water
  • Covered rigid hull inflatable vessel
  • Explore sea caves and lava tubes
  • Watch for dolphins, turtles, and whales

Spend the morning snorkeling at 3 unique and pristine locations including the 315 acre marine sanctuary Kealakekua Bay where the monument to Captain Cook was placed in 1874, the culturally significant Pu’uhonua O Honaunau, and a third remote location you wouldn’t be able to access any other way. Perhaps you’ll snorkel at a black sand beach and have it all to yourselves. Maybe a stone arch or a spectacular lava rock formation created thousands of years ago by a young Mt. Hualalai. We will take you to locations even residents of the Island have yet to see.

Explore sea caves and lava tubes in our safe, exciting, and maneuverable vessels designed to get you up close and personal with the coast. Throughout the morning we are scouting for marine life such as pilot whales as long as your boat, Hawaiian spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, and more as the diverse marine life abounds along the South Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.

After snorkeling, enjoy a deli lunch in the shade of the canopy within view of the monument to Captain Cook. Snacks, water & juice are provided throughout the day, as is all the snorkeling gear and flotation devices you need. You show up in your swimsuit with your reef-safe sunscreen and towel in hand and away we go!
