AFTERNOON KONA SNORKEL TOUR

EXPLORE THE KONA COAST ON A TROPICAL SNORKELING TOUR.


Check-in: 1:45 pm

Location: Keauhou Bay (Departure & Return): 78-7130 Kaleiopapa St, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740

Trip Time: 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm


Your afternoon, Big Island snorkeling tour begins with a sail down the beautiful Kona Coast on the Hokulani, our spacious 45-foot trimaran. We’ll stop in the pristine waters of world-famous Kealakekua Bay. This marine sanctuary is one of the best snorkeling spots in Hawaii, with clear blue waters and a vibrant reef to explore.

ITINERARY

The Hokulani sets sail from Keauhou Bay at 2:00 pm. As we sail down the Kona Coast, keep an eye out for Humpback Whales, from Dec-April, and Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, year-round.

Approximately 45-minutes later, we’ll enter Historic Kealakekua Bay, where you’ll spot the World Famous Captain Cook Monument. “Hawaii the Big Island Revealed” guidebook says, “snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay near the monument is perhaps the best you will find anywhere in the state.” Bring an underwater camera to capture the colorful schools of fish and sea life swimming through the vibrant reef and ancient lava flows.

Enjoy the view and sip on a beer or tropical cocktail over light snacks, or “pupus” as the locals call them. These include Maui Style chips and fresh, tropical fruits and beverages. Then it’s back to Keauhou Bay, arriving by approximately 5 pm. While your Hawaii snorkel adventure has come to an end, your memories will last a lifetime.

IN THE WATER

Your captain selects the best snorkeling sites in Kealakekua Bay and our friendly crew members provide site briefings, historical facts, snorkel tips and safety instructions to guests of all ages and experience levels. Masks, fins, snorkels, life jackets, floatation noodles and viewfinder boards are provided aboard the Hokulani.

Our professional crew will guide you in the water and can also provide you with fish identification cards. Snorkel time is approximately one hour.
