Casually cruise the Kona coastline and snorkel with tropical marine life, as you splash in the waters of Kealakekua Bay on this deluxe Kona snorkeling cruise. Snorkeling equipment is provided on board, and professional instruction makes this Big Island snorkeling cruise a fun-filled family adventure. On the cruise between shore and the snorkeling site, keep your eyes peeled for spinner dolphins, turtles or even manta rays, and enjoy views of volcanic formations along the Kona coast.
  • Snorkel cruise along Kealakekua Bay
  • Snorkeling adventure in the warm waters
  • Delicious breakfast including Kona coffee and snacks
  • Huge water slide
  • Lunch including garden and cheeseburgers
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.

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.

This cruise was beyond fabulous. Very relaxing to and from our snorkeling destination. Great food. Attentive and knowledgeable staff. LOTS of time to enjoy snorkeling, with all gear provided. Optional SNUBA available, which I took advantage of and absolutely LOVED. Also saw some frolicking whales in the distance! Maybe I'll do it again before I go home!

We had a large group for breakfast and lunch but didn't feel crowded. They had equipment for everybody from 80 to 3. Flotation boards with windows , view cubes, tubes even scubalike equipment. Food was good and crew did everything for you. Slides and high dive for the young and young at heart. Great day snorkeling with no sand in your suit or in your car.Fresh water showers on the steps was a nice touch. Movie on deck on sea life and Adult beverages available for the ride home, fun was had by all.

This snorkeling trip was terrific! The staff was very professional and the outing was very well run. It was a little crowded at the marine sanctuary, but still plenty of room to explore.

Way better then I thought it would be, The staff were the best. Great group of help you have there. The coffee and breakfast were excellent and there was enough if you wanted some more. Lunch was the same,perfect! I liked jumping off the high platform the best. There was something for everyone. And, of course I could of snorkeled there all day. What a nice all around cruise. Thanks for the experience. The Wests

Crew was excellent and made for a fun cruise and snorkel. There were not as many fish as we hoped for in the Captain Cook area. No complaints at all about the boat or the crew. Most interesting part was the marine wildlife video and talk on the way back in.

My wife and I had a great time snorkeling. The Kealakekua Bay was beautiful, lots of fish, a few turtles and on our way over, a pod of dolphins took turns racing in the wake of the boat. One regret I have is that I didn't wear a water shirt. I spent so much time snorkeling, my back was very red when I got back.

, Jul 2017

What a fabulous day. The water was crystal clear and plenty of fish and coral to see. The crew and captain was great and shared many interesting facts. See Captain cook monument and the bay was great. My kids and husband loved the jumping off the boat and the food was fabulous. Was just the right time on the boat and in the water.

BEST snorkeling tour we have ever been on, and we've been on many! The boat was the perfect size, and we all loved the slides and diving platform. Kealakekua Bay is the most gorgeous spot I've ever seen to snorkel. Perfect visibility, and I could not believe the amount and variety of sea life we could see! Most of the area is nice and shallow, with little to no waves or current. Perfect for floating face down for long amounts of time looking at fish. There were several other smaller tour boats in the bay when we arrived, but it did not feel crowded in the nice large bay. Those boats were gone after awhile. Nice, knowledgeable guides, decent food and drinks, with a cash bar open on the way back. We even ran into a pod of spinner dolphins on our return. I would recommend this cruise 100!
