About The Kealakekua Bay (Captain Cook Monument) Snorkel Tour
Experience the incredibly clear waters of Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii's most famous protected marine sanctuary, in one of our most popular tours!
This tour is appropriate for snorkelers of all skill levels, including beginners.
- Please arrive 15 minutess before your departure time for check-in at Keauhou Small boat harbor, 78-7138 Kaleiopapa St Kailua Kona, Hawaii 96740.
We cruise from Keauhou harbor out into crystal clear blue waters. While the boat is underway, the crew will point out interesting features along the Kona coastline, which is rich in Hawaiian history. South Kona has a bevy of historically significant Hawaiian Heritage sites, full of mana (spiritual power). Staying close to the Kona coast as we travel south towards Kealakekua Bay, we watch closely for any interesting marine life.
Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins
We may stop the boat to enjoy the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins (Stenella longirostris) putting on a show. Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins rest close to shore during the day and will sometimes interact with the boat, bowriding and playing in our wake.
After a brief show from the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, Humpback whales and whatever else of interest is found along our way, we arrive at the world famous Kealakekua Bay, the site of the Captain James Cook monument.
After snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay for about an hour and a half, we start heading back to the harbor while keeping an eye out for more exciting marine life we may encounter on the way home.
Must have a minimum of 6 total passengers for this tour to go out.
