Discover the Best Snorkeling Spots in Kona on Our Tour.

The beauty of booking your Kona snorkeling experience with Dolphin Discoveries is that we go above and beyond. Our experienced and compassionate captain and crew are dedicated to ensuring that you get the most out of your time out on the water. While our Captain Cook snorkel tour offers an amazing time out on the water, we will only stop at one spot, Kealakekua Bay. However, this Kona Snorkel Tour is perfect for those who want to spend more time in the water and see the hundreds of tropical fish that are native to Hawai’i at two different locations.

Our Kona Coast snorkel tour goes above and beyond both any other snorkeling experience we offer as well as most snorkeling tours on the island. We go to two different popular reefs, each renowned for their lush and vibrant marine life. These reefs are home to hundreds of species of fish as well as a center of activity for marine plant and animal life.

We guarantee an amazing time filled with two eventful locations where you will be able to drop into the water and explore the majesty that is the reefs around Kona Coast.

Experience the Beauty of Kona’s Marine Life on Our Snorkeling Adventure.

While the hundreds of species of tropical fish that you will see on our snorkeling adventure are something to write home about– that is only scratching the surface of what you can expect when embarking on our Kona Snorkel Tour at Dolphin Discoveries!

If you are booking your snorkel excursion during the winter, you may be able to see Humpback Whales breaching off the side of the boat! This is not to discount the spinner dolphins, manta rays, and honu (sea turtles) who call Hawaii home. These animals are known to frequent those same reefs that we are visiting.

If you are unsure what fish you are seeing make sure to ask our crew! They are not only passionate about Hawaiian marine life, but know almost all there is about each specimen we will encounter.

Book our Snorkel Tour and Explore the Wonders of the Big Island’s Tropical Waters.

Our Kona Snorkel tour is known to go above and beyond. Not only are we experiencing different marine life hot spots; but our experienced captain and crew will make sure and show you other Big Island attractions like lava tubes and sea caves; things you wouldn’t be able to see anywhere else!

Hawai’i and the Big Island specifically, is not only known for the wonderful sea that ebbs and flows against the island, but the structures that lava over thousands of years has created for all nature to inhabit. If you are looking to maximize your time in Hawaii, and your day out on the water, be sure to book with us.
