Return : 3:30 PM

Adults $104 $99/ $94 $89 Children + taxes & fees Per Person

Snorkel at the Captain Cook Monument, the most popular and beautiful
spot in all of Hawaii.

This Captain Cook snorkeling trip is geared for those who want to sleep in or have plans in the morning, but still want to end the day with a memorable adventure.  Often times we can escape the crowds at Kealakekua Bay in the afternoon.  This more relaxed afternoon snorkel is generally less packed than our morning sessions.  Come join us for some tranquility.  Kealakekua Bay, home of the Captain Cook Monument, is home to 100’s of different varieties of tropical fish along with an occasional reef shark or spotted eagle ray.

If you are new to or have never snorkeled before this is the ideal choice!  Kealakekua Bay is known to have “lake-like” conditions most of the year, making it an ideal location to get comfortable with the sport of snorkeling. This Captain Cook Monument snorkeling adventure is particularly good for families with younger children or swimmers who aren’t certain if they are “seaworthy” enough for one of our longer trips. As we make our way to Kealakekua Bay, you will get a close-up view of the sea caves, lava tubes, and other geological formations along the coast.

This three-hour Captain Cook snorkel adventure leaves the dock at 12:30 PM and returns at 3:30 pm.  We will have you back in time for dinner in town.
