Dolphin Viewing and Snorkeling in Kona

Location: Kona, Big Island

During the speedboat adventure tour you will speed across the water allowing you to be one of the first boats out of the harbor. This small nimble boat allows you to avoid the big crowds of the larger boats as we find wild pods of dolphins to view before snorkeling over a tropical coral reef.

What to Expect

After leaving the harbor, we will begin our search for large pods of wild dolphins as we zip down the coast line.

Once we find the pods, this small speed boat makes it possible for everyone to see dolphins. This gives us an advantage compared to touring on the bigger boats with larger group sizes and potentially miss the dolphins swimming by!

Afterwards we will go enjoy snorkeling over one of Kona's many coral reefs. Our small speedboat provides easy accesses to coral reef coves while allowing a smaller group size for a more personal tour. While snorkeling over the reef you will enjoy encounters with tropical fish, manta rays, turtles, and even a possible whale fish. Our snorkeling locations also feature lava tubes, sea caves, and other underwater volcanic sights you can experience swimming near.
