Hilo Dolphin View & Reef Snorkel Boat

Location: Hilo, Big Island

Looking for a unique and fun adventure? This is the ultimate Hilo, Hawaii snorkel experience. This Hilo snorkel boat charter departs from the Wailoa Boat harbor in Hilo on our 35ft dive boat.

What to Expect

You head out on a fast and exhilarating speedboat trip across Hilo Bay and outside the break wall.

We will be on the search for pods of wild spinner dolphins who are swimming in the area. These dolphins regularly come and greet our boat, as they love to play in the wake we leave behind.

Once we arrive at our destination, the pristine snorkeling coves just up the coastline, we will snorkel in 20 feet of clear water over. Spectacular coral reef structures and sand patches to see Hawaii's diverse sea life.

The Hilo coast is known for its large sea turtle population due to the unique brackish water bays and lagoons not found elsewhere in Hawaii. The abundance of seaweed and algae attracts the large turtles along with octopus, eagle and manta rays, and tropical reef fish.

Your friendly captain and snorkel guide will teach you all about the underwater ecosystem and make sure that your positive snorkeling experience is you and your loved ones will remember forever.
