Hilo Boat Snorkel and Scuba Tour

Location: Hilo, Big Island

Beach dives are fun but there's nothing like diving from a boat. Enjoy our two tank boat dive and snorkel tour along the pristine Hilo coast.

Come explore the world beneath with us on Hilo's ONLY commercial dive and snorkel boat...the 28ft Moana Mea A'a (The Ocean Adventurer). The boat seats 6 passengers maximum to provide a more intimate snorkeling / scuba experience.

This is a 2-Snorkel site, or 2-Tank Scuba Dive site tour. We will visit two of the best sites on the Hilo side of the Big Island to make sure you see the best conditions and visibility for the day.


What to Expect

Our tour departs from the Wailoa Boat harbor in downtown Hilo and ventures beyond the breakwall to explore and dive the scenic coastline on our 28 foot ocean faring vessel. Enjoy the iconic lush coastlines that Hilo has to offer, and explore untouched coves where pods of dolphins hide away and often play in our wake.

You will stop off in two of these idyllic coves to dive spectacular and untouched reef walls and rock formations, and immerse yourself in East Hawaii's diverse sea life. Our coastline is renowned for the abundant sea turtle population, and our brackish water bays and lagoons are home to a wealth of sea life including octopus, eagle and manta rays, eels, corals, and tropical reef fish!

Your captain and dive master will guide you on an incredible journey through the abundance of sea life below, and will ensure you have a fun and memorable experience.
