Hawaii Oceanic - Kona Snorkel and Dolphin Watch
Come join Hawaii Oceanic for a morning of Hawaii dolphin watching and Kona snorkeling. The Kona Snorkel and Dolphin Watch departs from the Honokohau Harbor at 7:15 am. Sit back and enjoy the Ohana atmosphere as you enjoy Kona Coffee and fresh Tropical Fruit. The views of the Kona Coast are beautiful! The tour will start off looking for some Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. The amazing spins and flips they do when launching themselves out of the water is where the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins got their name. You'll enjoy getting to see their playful acrobatics from the boat, we try to hang out with them for 30 minutes.
Next, it's off to the Kealakekua Bay Marine Reserve for some great snorkeling. Kealakekua Bay is the site of the Captain James Cook Monument. This bay is home to some of the best Hawaii snorkeling and most enchanting waters the Big Island has to offer. Kealakekua Bay is a protected park with pristine coral reefs and marine life. Spend about an hour and half here snorkeling and enjoying the Hawaiian reefs there before heading back down the coast to look for whales, manta rays, or any other exciting marine life. You arrive back at the harbor around 11:00 am.
Hawaii Oceanic takes and provides complimentary photos of their guests and highlights of the day's charter at no additional cost. Enjoy your trip on their 30’ power catamaran, Pueo Kai (Ocean Owl) or Pueo Kai 2, a 27' Force Marine Boat. They take small groups on tour so that each trip is more enjoyable and personal. There is always a Red Cross Certified ocean lifeguard on board and a variety of snacks is included.
