Kealakekua Bay is a marine sanctuary with a variety of tropical fish and a robust coral reef system. Most of the fish on the reef can only be seen in Hawaii.  Every day is different at the reef, there’s no telling what you might see.  Sea Turtles, Octopus, and the occasional Dolphins call this bay home.

Additionally, this Kealakekua Bay snorkel trip is ideal for the budget-minded traveler who wants to check the block at this beautiful reef.  This trip is not advised for travelers who want to go at a slower pace or need a lot of snorkeling instruction.  Please see our other adventures if you want to take your time and need more personal attention.
