Upon arrival in Kealakekua Bay, peer overboard at the crystal clear waters that teem with colorful reef fish. After receiving expert instruction and snorkeling equipment onboard, you'll jump in the water to experience some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island.

This activity will end right where it started.
Since this Kona snorkeling trip departs from the waters inside of Keauhou Bay, you’re treated to a tour of the Kona coastline before even arriving at Kealakekua Bay for some of Hawaii’s best snorkeling. On this leisurely motor along the coast, be on the lookout for pods of spinner dolphins that splash in the waters near shore, and, if you’re lucky, there’s even the chance they could swim right along and jump by the bow of boat.  

Once you arrive in Kealakekua Bay for 1.5 hours of snorkeling, the crew will assist you with snorkeling equipment and provide expert instruction for beginners. There’s also a selection of flotation devices if it’s easier to float than to swim. Once you’ve swam with the schools of reef fish and explored the colorful corals, return to the boat and splash in the water from the boat’s 15-foot (4.5-meter) water slide. Climb aboard from the very top deck, and drink in the panoramic view, and then go hurtling down towards the water where you’ll land with a smile and a splash.

You’ll also enjoy some onboard snacks such as a selection of tropical fruit, and, on the comfortable cruise back to Keauhou Bay, an assortment of beverages are available for purchase to bring the trip to a close.

We saw the most fish that we have ever seen on a snorkel trip. Our Captain went out of our way to see some Manta Rays on our way back. The crew was amazing.

Fun, crew was helpful. Downfall didnt see much fish and the juice and snacks they provided were just water , pineapple and local potato chips. They didn't offer the juice they stated in booking. Other than that it was a good experience.

Captain John (water gun), Isaac (in the water life guard), and all the ladies were amazing. Very fun boat and Kealakekua Bay was probably the best snorkel spot we have ever been. Snack of golden pineapple and sweet potato chips are very tasty. Crew really enjoy their jobs and make it fun for the guests.

It was good.

It was a nice, slow cruise to Captain Cook Monument. The kids loved the slide and high dive on board. We had a 2 year old, who was able to join us in the water because the staff had provided a floatie with a seat built into it. Having been on other catamaran’s, I would say this one is average in comparison to Body Glove. The ride would’ve been livelier with music. We didn’t see dolphins either, and it’s not guaranteed like other trips are. Overall it was good.

A must do excursion!

Our favorite part of our vacation was our snorkeling excursion. I think everyone that visits the Big Island should go. The boat ride out was gorgeous and they explained the historical relevance of certain parts of the cliff. The crew were friendly and funny. The reef was gorgeous and the fish were beautiful. And to top it off, the spinner dolphins were so fun to see!

I was my 1st time snorkeling at age 66. They showed us first timers how to use the equipment. They helped us in any way could, they were great. Got to see dolphins, tunas feeding and flying fish. Couldn’t ask for anything more!!
