Hawaii Oceanic - Kealakekua Bay Snorkel

This Big Island Snorkel Tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Kailua-Kona Snorkeling page for other available tours.

Departing from Keauhou Harbor, we’ll head south to beautiful Kealakekua Bay to snorkel in the bay’s pristine waters. Because it is a protected park, the coral reef and abundant marine life is second to none for snorkeling. The bay is also home to the Captain Cook monument and your captain and crew will share information about the fascinating history surrounding this area.

Kealakekua Bay is the Big Island’s best snorkeling location, and you’ll be able to see some incredible varieties of corals dotting the reef, such as rice, lobe and finger corals, all displaying some spectacular colors. A large variety of tropical fish can be seen as well, including trumpetfish, yellow tang, black triggerfish, the brightly colored parrotfish, sky white moray eels, the Hawaii state fish, called the humuhumunukunukuapua'a (reef triggerfish), and many more!

  • Cruise along the Big Island’s scenic Kona Coast
  • Snorkel at the Kealakekula Bay marine life conservation district
