Dolphin Discoveries - Captain Cook Snorkel Adventure

This combination dolphin / whale watching and snorkel tour is three hours of fun. Dolphin Discoveries will introduce you to the sea caves and lava tubes of the historic Kona Coast as you make your way to Captain Cook's Monument at Kealakekua Bay. Once there, you’ll dive in and snorkel one of the nicest marine sanctuaries in the Hawaiian Islands. As you snorkel, you'll be accompanied by hordes of curious fish that live amongst the vibrant and colorful coral reefs. After you've enjoyed yourself snorkeling, you'll head out to find some of Hawaii's famous spinner dolphins (and, in the winter, you'll also go looking for some whales as well!).
