Safety and Comfort On Your Private Boat Charter in Kona

Your safety and comfort are paramount when you embark on a private boat charter with Dolphin Discoveries in Kona, and our experienced guides are dedicated to ensuring that your experience is not only enjoyable but secure. Our commitment to safety is a fundamental aspect of every journey.

Our guides are not just professionals; they are experts with a profound understanding of the unique conditions and challenges of Kona’s coastal environment.

Allow Dolphin Discoveries Show You The Best Way to Experience Hawaii

There are few limits to what you will be able to explore along the Kona Coast, and even fewer limitations to the knowledge and experience that our captain and crew will pass along to you while aboard the vessel. From Hawaiian history and culture, to marine biology, there’s so much to discover!

On our other tours we boast about visiting a few of Kona’s most popular snorkeling destinations and being able to create intimate encounters with some of the largest and smartest animals in the world. But with our Kona private boat charter: while you are relaxing above deck and soaking in the tropical UV rays, you may get to witness a humpback whale breach above the water, a sea turtle glide along the surface of the Pacific Ocean, or be entranced by a pod of Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins if they choose to check out you and the boat itself. All the while knowing you can visit any and all of the best reefs in Kona just by saying when!

The beauty of booking a private boat charter is the exclusivity and the world of choice that it opens up. On the other hand, there is intense excitement that comes with the unknown involved in boating around the Kona Coast– this is left to the surprise visits of our sea-faring friends or being able to explore hidden gems like Lava Tubes, lesser known reefs, and Hawaii’s Sea Caves.
