Breathtaking Snorkeling Adventure in
Kailua Kona, Hawaii

Snorkeling in Kona
This Kona snorkeling adventure is a half day excursion. We provide guests with the best kona snorkel trips, 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 (Captain Cook Monument):

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 Kailua 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 Captain Cook at this bay on February 14th, 1779. The waters here are clear, offering great visibility. Kealakekua Bay 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.

Snorkeling in Kona
Honaunau National Historic
HONAUNAU BAY (Place of Refuge):

Honaunau Bay at Pu’uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historic Park often referred to as the “Place of Refuge” is a famous Kailua-Kona Snorkeling location. Honaunau Bay is 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.

Kona Snorkeling 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).

Let us show you why snorkeling in Kona, Hawaii will be the highlight of your trip.
