What to expect
Tour travels south to Kealakekua Bay, home of the Captain Cook monument. Along the way, we stop at historical sites and sea caves. Our skilled captains watch for whales and dolphins so that we can encounter the wonderful marine from onboard. Once in Kealakekua Bay, we snorkel there for approx 1 hour. Guest can expect to see turtles, bright-colored reef fish, coral that’s over 1500 years old, the Captain Cook Monument, freshwater springs, and be on the lookout for Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. IMPORTANT: On this tour, we used to snorkel with the wild dolphins. As of 2021 The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) is now being enforced and swimming with wild dolphins is now considered harassment. We will still be able to go encounter the dolphins at a safe distance but will not be able to enter the water with them.

Excellent adventure
Had an excellent crew that took us to swim with spinner dolphins and the n to snorkel at the reef. It was an informative and exciting trip.

The crew knew the area and history. If it was your first time snorkeling you felt safe and assured.
