Embark on a 4-hour snorkeling adventure along the western coast of the Big Island for up-close encounters with local marine life. Explore Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau Bay to unveil Hawaii’s unique underwater world, learn Hawaiian history, and get breathtaking views from the front row.
Accompanied by a US Coast Guard-licensed captain, set off in a small, rigid hull, perfect for swooping through breathtaking sea caves and lava tubes. Drive along the scenic coastline and arrive at Kealakekua Bay for a 45-minute dip near the Captain Cook Monument. Learn the historical significance of this unique location as you explore the 130-foot (40-m) deep coral reef wall and snorkel around clown fish, turtles, eels, and maybe even an octopus.
On your ride to Honaunau Bay (Place of Refuge), listen as your captain spouts Jeopardy-worthy Hawaiian marine trivia. Relax in the sun’s warmth and enjoy beverages, fresh fruit, and island chips. Keep an eye out for lively nai’a (dolphins) swimming alongside the boat.
Arrive at the flat lava rocks of Honaunau Bay and explore the ecosystem living within shallow-water coral gardens. A wonderland only accessible by boat, this bay's warm, clear water surrounds you with honu (sea turtles) and schools of tropical fish. See if you can spot (and pronounce) the humuhumunukunukuapua’a, Hawaii’s state fish.
