Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This Kona snorkeling cruise leaves from Keauhou on the southern edge of town, which makes for a short and comfortable cruise to Kealakekua Bay. Start the tour with a steaming cup of Kona grown coffee, which is sourced directly from the Dant family farm and served with muffins and fruit. 

When you arrive in sheltered Kealakekua Bay, the next 2.5 hours are reserved for swimming, snorkeling and splashing with marine life. Take a turn on the 15-foot (4.5-meter) waterslide or the high jump platform from the ship, or follow schools of colorful fish as they flit and dart about the reef. 

While you’re enjoying the clear waters or lounging out on the deck, the captain will be firing up the barbecue grill for a lunch of burgers at sea. There are also garden burgers and vegetarian options for your meal with an ocean view, as well as a wide selection of beverages available for purchase on board.

Very well organized, good equipment, excellent staff, and a very comfortable boat. And ofcourse, the snorkeling location is one to die for. Pristine crystal clear water makes it one of the best snorkeling locations I have ever been to.

A great way to visit and experience the Kealakekua Bay

What a great way to experience the Kealakekua Bay on a hot summer day. While on the cruise, we saw incredible views of volcanic formations along the Kona coast as well as spinner dolphins and manta rays! Snorkel equipment and instructions were provided. The staff and crew were very helpful and friendly. I'd highly recommend SNUBA, which is not included in the cruise package, but totally worth the extra money. Our instructor, Hunter, was very knowledgeable and patient with us. One minor downside I feel is that there were too many people on the cruise.

Talk about a well run tour! Great scenery and very helpful guides! Snorkeling was great and then they allowed us to just “play” with the kids and have fun. Good bbq and continental breakfast-plenty of food. I highly recommended!

I've never written an online review - but have to for this! The crew is outstanding - laid back, friendly, and you can tell that they truly enjoy what they're doing. The boat is a great size - includes slides and places to jump/dive off the boat. Sometimes on excursions like these you feel packed in like sardines - but this was not the case. There was plenty of room for everyone! The snorkel site is amazing! Our boat was by far the best boat there for accommodations, size, etc. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!!!!!!!!

I loved this trip. With all the rocky shores on the Big Island, this trip gave me my snorkeling fix. You snorkel right next to Caption Cook's Monument (i think that is what it was called). Great lunch and snorkeling. We saw a couple little sharks in a crevice too and spinner dolphins. Our boat caught several fish while we were going to the snorkeling spot, it was very entertaining. I would definitely recommend this snorkel cruise.
