Description

Get a chance to spot dolphins, explore lava tubes, and swim with tropical fish in the crystal-clear waters at one of Hawaii’s best snorkeling spots, Kealakekua Bay. Suitable for beginners, this aquatic adventure offers an introductory snorkeling lesson, tasty snacks, and an entertaining captain.

Board an agile Zodiac raft—just like the Navy SEALs and the US Coast Guard use—and depart from Honokohau Marina, 3 miles (5 km) north of Kailua-Kona. Cruising along the scenic coast, listen to your captain’s tales of Hawaiian history and folklore while keeping your eyes peeled for mantas, spinner dolphins, and green sea turtles as well as humpback whales in the winter.

Discover lava tubes and sea caves as you travel along the remote shoreline and feel like you are traveling back in time. During this thrilling ride, marvel at the incredible geology as your captain skillfully drives the Zodiac raft.

At Kealakekua Bay, a national marine park, don your custom-fitted snorkel gear and plunge into the clear water teeming with fish and a variety of corals. If you’re a first-time snorkeler, get a quick lesson before diving into the warm bay. Back on the raft, refuel with fresh fruit, snacks, cookies, and beverages before returning to the marina.

The ride was so fun! The captain and first mate were entertaining and also patient as we were first time snorkelers and are not super comfortable in a wide open ocean. The historical info was great, snacks and drinks were much appreciated, and we had a blast! Definitely a highlight for the family.
