Afternoon Kealakekua Adventure
Join us for a 4hrs guided snorkel tour to Kealakekua Bay, the Marine Sanctuary and one of Top 10 snorkel destinations. Admire Wild Spinner Dolphins if lucky and other sea creatures. Truly Amazing!

Set out from Kailua-Kona for a half-day snorkeling tour to Kealakekua Bay, one of the top snorkeling destinations on the Big Island. Look for dolphins and other marine life in the wild, and then use the provided snorkeling gear upon arrival in Kealakekua Bay. This tour is suitable for all levels of experience and includes a picnic lunch.

What to Expect
Make your own way to Honokohau Harbor to board your catamaran. Your guide provides snorkeling gear and a safety briefing as your boat travels along the volcanic Kona coast to Kealakekua Bay. Keep an eye out for wild dolphins and perhaps whales (seasonal) along the way.

Hear from your guide about the marine animals and history of Kealakekua Bay, which was the birthplace of the Hawaiian monarch, King Kamehameha III, and the burial place of 18th-century explorer Captain Cook.

When you reach Kealakekua Bay, hop in the warm water for snorkeling at a coral reef loaded with tropical fish.

Your tour includes a picnic lunch served on board the boat, snorkeling instruction, and use of snorkeling gear. Be sure to bring swim gear, dry clothing, towel, and sun protection. Your tour ends with return to the harbor in Kona.
