big island private charter boat

Have you ever found that there’s not enough time in the day to pack in all that you want to do? While this can pertain to work obligations or a weekend task-list, it is also a great woe for those on vacation who want to make the most out of every day or excursion. Most snorkel tours of Kona’s Coast only are able to stop at one or two of the most popular destinations; and if you’re booking with a larger tour company, you may have a lot of people crowding you both in and out of the water.

If you are craving complete control over your adventure as well as creating a more exclusive experience for you and your group, then we highly recommend booking a private boat charter with a trusted local tour boat!

Get the Chance to Explore the Big Island’s Greatest Hidden Treasures

The Big Island, specifically Kona Coastline, has more to offer than the popular reefs you read about on touristy travel blogs. There are hidden lava tubes and sea caves scattered dotted through the water and accessible while on board a trusted local tour boat. 

Your captain and crew will have a wealth of knowledge as it relates to the various landmarks and landscapes you will see while traveling during the day, the lack of other guests aboard the boat also means that you are able to ask all your questions and get in depth answers and conversations. This is your perfect opportunity to learn as much as you can about the environment and history of the Big Island.

Create a Completely Customized Day Out on the Tropical Waters

Hands down, the best part about booking your own private charter of the Big Island is the ability to completely customize the day! If you aren’t an avid swimmer and prefer sightseeing (whether that be the lava tubes or various marine animals) then let your captain know and you can plan a day of exploration. If you are someone who wants to hit up as many coral reefs as possible to go exploring beneath the surface, again, let your captain and crew know so that they can come up with a plan to satisfy everything!

While there may be certain constraints like hours in a day, you may even get the opportunity to choose your own start and end time for the charter that works best with your schedule and preference! This may be something like a romantic sunset charter versus an early morning snorkel extravaganza.

Spot Dolphins, Whales, and Other Marine Life on a Big Island Private Charter!

Big Island boat charters can foremost serve as a way to embark on an exclusive whale or dolphin watch tour. While dolphin or whale watching tours offered to groups can be categorized as being booked up fast and crowded to the point you may not even get to see the animals; a private charter mitigates all this and creates a luxury and intimate viewing experience.

While native spinner dolphins hang around the Big Island year-round, whales tend only to migrate to the tropics during the winter and early spring months. This means that if you want to possibly hear their songs or see calves and mama whales breach above the water– you may want to secure your private charter now before they book up!
