Snorkeling is a popular Kona coast activity, and booking a tour ensures you’ll experience the area's best snorkeling spots. Thanks to provided snorkeling equipment and a guide to take you through Kealakekua Bay, all you have to do is jump in the water and enjoy sightings of tropical fish, bottlenose dolphins, and even whales. Two upgrade options are available to add multiple snorkel locations, as well as lunch.
What to Expect

This Kealakekua Bay tour meets at Keauhou Bay at the time you've selected. Depending on which tour option you chose, you’ll snorkel in Kealakekua Bay; Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau Bay; or Kealakekua, Honaunau Bay, and one other location.

Your guide gives a safety briefing, so you’ll feel confident to hit the water, and also provides snorkeling equipment. Then, you’ll set out for a spot to snorkel in a rigid inflatable raft.

As you snorkel, keep a lookout for sea creatures such as tropical fish, bottlenose dolphins, and whales. Your guide knows the best spots for catching sight of sea life. Snacks are provided for the two shorter cruises. Lunch is provided for the longer Expedition Cruise.

Your Kona coast snorkeling tour ends back where it started.

We kayaked over to Captain Cook from N' Opo Opoo on the 7am outing. No more had we gotten set to do some snorkeling when THREE big boats pulled up and loaded hundreds of NOISY passengers, some of whom got into the water snorkeling.
