This activity will end right where it started.
This Kona snorkeling cruise leaves from Keauhou on the southern edge of town, which makes for a short and comfortable cruise to Kealakekua Bay. Start the tour with a steaming cup of Kona grown coffee, which is sourced directly from the Dant family farm and served with muffins and fruit. 

When you arrive in sheltered Kealakekua Bay, the next 2.5 hours are reserved for swimming, snorkeling and splashing with marine life. Take a turn on the 15-foot (4.5-meter) waterslide or the high jump platform from the ship, or follow schools of colorful fish as they flit and dart about the reef. 

While you’re enjoying the clear waters or lounging out on the deck, the captain will be firing up the barbecue grill for a lunch of burgers at sea. There are also garden burgers and vegetarian options for your meal with an ocean view, as well as a wide selection of beverages available for purchase on board.

Best crew and ship
, Dec 2021
It was a great experience. I've snorkeled all over Hawaii but this is my favorite spot, I've been there 3 times now and I've gone with many crews but this crew was my favorite
Awesome snorkel experience for non-swimmers
, Dec 2021
We highly recommend this snorkel team. Such an amazing crew full of energy and positivity. We thought we would make it on the cruise but never be able to snorkel as some of us didn’t know how to swim but the crew gave flotation tubes and life jackets so we were able to see the amazing life under the ocean. The good was plant based and amazingly tasty. The crew was the best part of the cruise that made everything such an unforgettable experience. If we visit big island again, we are definitely coming back here. Thank you so much!!!
Unforgettable experience!
, Nov 2021
We all enjoyed the running narration of sights in and around the water during the boat trip and the snorkeling was amazing! The food was delicious and my husband could not believe it was vegan because it tasted so good. If we could give it six stars, we would!
Awesome can’t miss trip!
, Aug 2021
We did the morning tour and it was fantastic! Awesome professional, helpfully, and friendly crew. Clean boat, nice large bathrooms. Great area to snorkel. Would definitely do again and recommend to anyone. Only thing we missed was not having a non vegan option for the lunch.

Nice Snorkeling Trip
, Jul 2021
Overall, it was a nice trip but have had better snorkeling experiences. The catamaran was big and clean. The food served was very healthy and good. The crew could have been more interactive with the guests.

Fantastic trip
, Jul 2021
Excellent trip. Staff was helpful and great with kids. Kids especially loved along with the snorkeling the high dive and water slide options.
Highlight of Our Vacation!
, Jul 2021
Absolutely amazing. Our group ranged from 14 years old to 71. Friendly helpful crew assured everyone’s safety. Easy on and off the boat. Tip..if snorkels bother you or seem unwieldy, ask to use the viewing box. Easy to handle floating with an inner tube. Just remember to only use their sunscreen as it is totally reef safe. And read about Captain Cook’s demise as your up close and personal to that history!
Morning snorkel
, Jul 2021
My family and I enjoyed this morning snorkel tour. Breakfast and lunch were provided. Snorkel equipment was clean and sanitized and in good working order. There was plenty amount of pleasant staff/lifeguards onboard helping to keep everyone safe. I would recommend this trip to others. The location for snorkeling was great, we saw plenty of different varieties of fish and the trip overall was relaxing not rushed and we had enough time to snorkel around and feel we got our money's worth!
Must do!
, Jul 2021
The crew was very helpful and authentically enthusiastic. The snorkeling was incredible. The plant based meal was delicious — the jackfruit BBQ sliders were super yum!
Everything great
, Jul 2021
Great boat and crew, everything was done well. We had a great time 😎👍🤙 before we left check in was fast and simple. The days schedule was discussed and off we went. Snorkeling 🤿 and food were excellent and crew was very helpful and kind. There was a great talk and video on the ocean creatures on the ride back to port. It was a great experience for the whole family.
