Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Since this Kona snorkeling trip departs from the waters inside of Keauhou Bay, you’re treated to a tour of the Kona coastline before even arriving at Kealakekua Bay for some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling. On this leisurely motor along the coast, be on the lookout for pods of spinner dolphins that splash in the waters near shore, and, if you’re lucky, there’s even the chance they could swim right along and jump by the bow of boat.  

Once you arrive in Kealakekua Bay for 1.5 hours of snorkeling, the crew will assist you with snorkeling equipment and provide expert instruction for beginners. There’s also a selection of flotation devices if it’s easier to float than to swim. Once you’ve swam with the schools of reef fish and explored the colorful corals, return to the boat and splash in the water from the boat’s 15-foot (4.5-meter) water slide. Climb aboard from the very top deck, and drink in the panoramic view, and then go hurtling down towards the water where you’ll land with a smile and a splash.

You’ll also enjoy some onboard snacks such as a selection of tropical fruit, and, on the comfortable cruise back to Keauhou Bay, an assortment of beverages are available for purchase to bring the trip to a close.

Beautiful day, smooth ride. Super friendly, attentive crew. Sirfbwas too rough for us to snorkle from the beach, so we booked the trip. They got us into a beautiful, quiet reef.

The captain gave us several stops with history of the island in the way to our snorkeling stop. This made the trip interesting and the fish at the snorkeling stop were fantastic.
