There are few places in all of Hawaii more historic than Kealakekua Bay, as it's the spot where Captain Cook was killed in a skirmish with native Hawaiians, and the Hawaiian monarch, King Kamehameha III was born just a few miles away. The history aside, it's also one of the best places to snorkel on the Big Island of Hawaii, and you'll have the chance to experience the beauty on this snorkeling tour from Kona. Search for dolphins on the way to bay while admiring the volcanic coast, and after scouring the red for coral and fish, climb aboard for a lunch that's served by the friendly crew.
  • Visit historic Kealakekua Bay
  • Search for and swim with wild dolphins
  • View Humpback whales in winter
  • Cruise the volcanic Kona coast
  • Lunch and snorkeling equipment included

The crew were great and accommodating. Had a wonderful snorkeling day and would highly recommend Hang Loose.

Don't take any other snorkel tour dolphin trip, this one blows them out of the water. The crew (Simon and Jacob) were amazing. My husband got seasick half way through and They kept up his spirits the entire time. They made sure to help us get the best views of the dolphins while still respecting then and the lunch they provided was perfect. No boring sandwiches allowed! They helped with any questions we had and if you have kids they are great with them. There were 2 kids on the tour and they drive the boat back and had a blast. Best guys ever! They made the trip amazing!

We had an awesome time. Especially when the dolphin swim under us. It was a first time for the grandkids, and they had an awesome time.

this was a great excursion. The guys were extremely nice. snorkeling was great. unfortunately the dolphins were not out. they more than made up for it by allowing us on another excursion free of charge.

This was an enjoyable experience, however we didnt get to swim with the dolphins due to weather conditions. I would suggest, dont book in advance through Viator, just wait until youre on the island and book directly through the local bookings offices as weather conditions change. However its was still a beautiful snorkeling experience at Kealakekua Bay and the lunch and snacks were plentiful and tasty.

Great crew... friendly and lots of fun. Took us right to the dolphins, then on to some of the best snorkeling on the big island. Beautiful views along the way. Highly recommend!

My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. The captain and crew were so warm, welcoming and knowledgeable about the dolphins and the area in general. It was truely an amazing experience.

Captain Mike and Jacob were great, they explained things well and were very patient with us beginners. This was the top experience for my family while visiting the big island. They were unable to legally get us in swimming with some spinner dolphins so the owner, Simon offered us a FREE return visit. We would have loved to take them up on it but just didn't have the time. You will not be disappointed if you book any adventure with the guys at Hangloose!

It is a wonderful trip. The staffs are friendly and professional. It is fun to swim with dolphin. The snorkeling in Kealakekua is exceptional and best in Hawaii.
