Big Island Snorkeling Tours – More Snorkel Time at Kealakekua Bay!
This is the same great tour as the award-winning four-hour AM or PM adventure, but it is timed to allow you to snorkel with fewer people at the bay! This tour allows you to snorkel longer and beat the rush of the crowds, as we time this tour so you can snorkel with less boats than our original snorkeling tour.
Kealakekua Bay is the best place to snorkel on the Big Island of Hawaii. With its crystal-clear, calm waters, guests to the Big Island naturally gravitate there.
Given the number of people in the bay in the early morning or late afternoon, we have designed this Kona snorkel tour to fall between those times, hence “beating the crowd.”
Upon arrival at the Kona Marina, guests will be briefed on the bay and snorkeling. They can stay in the water for as long as they like. The crew of the raft will have lunch ready for them when they get out of the water.
While eating lunch, the captain will talk about the history of Kealakekua Bay and why the Captain Cook monument was erected here. After, there will be additional time to jump back into the water for a little more snorkeling.
Once everyone is done snorkeling, the same, award-winning, coastal tour will begin. Sea caves, lava tubes, and blowholes! Spinner dolphins, manta rays, turtles, oh my!
Please note that due to the bouncy nature of our ride we do not allow any persons with back or neck problems or ladies that are pregnant on the tour.
Our rafts can hold up to 16 passengers. We are able to accommodate larger groups as we have multiple rafts! Just give us a call to organize.
