The Deluxe Morning Adventure is the original tour Sea Quest has been operating for 30 years along the South Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. Snorkeling in Kona is the best in the State and this particular tour features the two most pristine locations of them all. Explore the unseen Hawaii by climbing aboard our safe and exciting rigid hull inflatables that were custom made to explore the sea caves and lava tubes, and experience the embodiment of the aloha spirit with the best customer service in Kona.
Check in is at our office & gift shop in historic Keauhou Bay located near the Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa. Our warm protected waters are a haven for the marine life that abounds and the first thing we do is spend time scouting for whatever is in the vicinity that morning. We regularly see pilot whales, bottlenose and spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, beaked whales, and more. Of course in the winter months, the humpback whales are everywhere you look.
• Pu'uhonua o Honaunau- A culturally and historically significant location that boasts incredible coral formations, crystal clear water, and Sea Quest is one of very few companies that are a permitted to visit by sea.
• Kealakekua Bay- A 315 acre marine sanctuary that is often referred to as one of the best in the World and certainly the best in the State. This is where you will find the monument to Captain Cook and you will snorkel directly in front of it.
Sea Caves & Lava Tubes:
The base of Hualalai mountain is riddled with sea caves and awe inspiring geological features. Our custom made vessels were designed to get you up close and personal, actually pulling the boats into the sea caves surf permitting. Our guests book to snorkel at some of the best locations in the World, but they come back talking about the sea caves.
All in all, the Deluxe Morning Adventure is the epitome of an adventure snorkeling tour and an excursion you'll want to do over and over!
