Check-in: 8:30 AM
Return : 12:00 PM

Adults $99 / $89 Children + tax Per Person

Snorkel the most popular and beautiful spot in all of Hawaii, Kealakekua Bay.

This three-hour adventure leaves the dock at 9 AM and we visit the best snorkel spot in Kona, Hawaii!  Kealakekua Bay, Captain Cook’s monument, is home to 100’s of different varieties of tropical fish along with an occasional reef shark or spotted eagle ray.  The experience of snorkeling Kealakekua Bay is breathtaking.  You will feel as though you are swimming in a fish tank.

When you join us on this adventure you will learn the history of Captain Cook and get an up close look at the sea caves and lava tubes that scatter along the rugged Kona coast.  Then, time permitted, we will set out in search of other marine life that we are blessed to have here in Kona.  

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 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.
