Snorkel two of Kona’s best spots on one trip!

This Kona snorkeling adventure takes 4 hours. Providing guests with snorkeling, as well as cultural, and environmental information relevant to the island of Hawaii and its history. Along with the snorkeling and history, your captain will show you several spectacular, unique volcanic geological phenomena including sea caves and lava tubes.

Kealakekua Bay  is a well-known historical site and underwater marine sanctuary. The name “Kealakekua” means “Pathway to God” and the “mana” (spiritual power or energy) can be felt here by all. The large bay is situated to ensure calm waters year round and one of our best Kona snorkeling tours.

British explorer James Cook landed here in 1779. Today this is where the Captain Cook Monument is found commemorating the death of Capt. Cook at this bay on February 14th, 1779. The waters here are clear, offering great visibility. Kealakekua is home to over 100 different varieties of tropical fish, and, at times, sleeping reef sharks. As we leave the bay, we may even spot some dolphin.

Honaunau National Historic
Honaunau Bay at Pu’uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historic Park often referred to as the “City of Refuge” is a famous snorkeling location. Honaunau Bay is a uniquely beautiful, the Travel Channel named it one of “America’s Best Beaches”. 
 
Pu’uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historic Park is a centuries old historic site that was of great importance during Pre-Discovery Hawaii. Most of the site dates back more than 500 years and is currently taken care of by the National Parks Service. 
 
The Pu’uhonua is still considered a sacred site to this day. You will feel the spirit of peace and forgiveness that continues to surround and bless this special place.
 
Snorkeling here is almost always calm and the waters have exceptional visibility most of the year and is quite different than snorkeling Kealakekua Bay.  You get to explore beautiful coral shelves with white sandy patches in between.  It is here that you might get to see a Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle).
