Spot dolphins, turtles, and schools of colorful reef fish in their natural habitat along the Kona coastline of the island of Hawaii on this Kealakekua Bay snorkeling cruise. The tour is family-friendly and open to beginners on up, as all snorkeling equipment and instructions are included. All you have to do is to relax and spot reef fish, coral, and other sea life.
  • Swim with schools of fish, dolphins, and turtles along the Kona coastline
  • Snorkeling gear is provided, as are inner tubes and flotation devices
  • The boat features a 15-foot (4.5-meter) water slide
  • Snacks, fruit, water, and juice are provided
What to Expect
Check in a half hour before your tour time at Keauhou Bay Pier. From there, enjoy the sights of the Kona coastline as you head out to Kealakekua Bay on your boat. Along the way, catch a glimpse of spinner dolphins who are known to pop up near the shore. Once in the bay, the onboard crew equips you with snorkeling gear and provides instructional guidance for beginners. Also available are an assortment of flotation devices for those who would prefer not to swim. After your time in the water spotting reef fish, coral, and other sea life, try out the boat’s water slide. From the top deck, make a big splash into the water. Light snacks and water and juice are provided free of charge. The tour ends back at Keauhou Bay Pier.

Ever since covid, we have been home for a long time, but having a private tour to get out and do something unique was very awesome. Dante and Cory took us to the best spots and were very good with cleanliness and social distancing.
