Dolphin Discoveries - Dolphin Discovery Adventure

Join Dolphin Discoveries in the search for wild dolphins in Kona! Dolphin Discoveries has nearly 20 years of experience looking for wild dolphins. They have the utmost respect for not disrupting the dolphins rest, nursing, and breeding behaviors.

Start the trip off cruising to look for one of the many pods that are traveling back to one of their many resting areas from their night time feeding. This is the time to catch the dolphins in playful leaps and spins!

After viewing the dolphins, we’ll leave them to their natural resting cycle and head south to snorkel the beautiful pristine reef at Kealakekua Bay, home of the Captain Cook Monument. Along the way we will talk about Hawaiian history and get up close to sea caves, lava tubes and geographical formations. We may have time for a brief snorkel at a manta ray cleaning station.

Tour Highlights:
  • Morning dolphin watching cruise
  • Head to a snorkel spot to see other marine life in the area
  • Plenty of great photo opportunities
Tour Inclusions:
  • All snorkel gear
  • Protein packed snacks, fresh fruit, water and juices
