Join us on a 5 hour Sea adventure as we find Pilot whales, Dolphins, or Humpback whales and creatures of the ocean. From the deep sea, coast with us to Kealakekua Bay where the Captain Cook monument stands. Relax, float and snorkel as you enjoy the beautiful waters of Kealakekua Bay. Follow the myriads of reef fish as you snorkel, watch as the reef fish eat algae off the reef or territorially keep other small fish from their coral domain. After swimming at Kealakekua Bay enjoy a light Deli Lunch as we head back up the Kona Coast. Keep your eyes open for Spinner Dolphins. If you would like to, join us for a swim when we find a pod of Dolphins. Watch these amazing and brilliantly smart creatures in their world. Spinner Dolphins are native to the Islands and are typically nocturnal creatures. We practice a passive observer technique not interupting their natural habitat. You will have the chance to discover the beautiful seascape and Kona coastline with the Captain Zodiac Crew. Explore the intricate sea caves, lava tubes and amazing wildlife on this adventurous tour departing from Honokohau Harbor. Learn about some of the culturall historic Hawaiian locations along the coast.
Plan to arrive at Kealakekua Bay when the other boats have left, we provide a more intimate, uncrowded snorkel experience. Captains have the option to add a second snorkel site, more site seeing, or added time with humpback whales, pilot whales and dolphins! Includes
