Kona Dolphin Watch and Snorkel Tour

Location: Kona, Big Island

Join us and race along the coastline in our thrilling speedboat on your way to snorkel with vibrant marine life and drift alongside dolphins. You'll also feast on an ocean-front BBQ while floating on the crystal clear waters of Kona.

What to Expect

We depart from Honokohau Harbor in Kona in search of pods of wild dolphins. Every year, the ocean waters surrounding Kona become a playground for Spinner and Bottlenose Dolphins. In ancient times, Hawaiians considered marine life, particularly dolphins, as 'aumakua—ancestral guardian spirits. Witnessing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat thus takes on a spiritual dimension, blending adventure with deep cultural respect.

After respectfully drifting alongside the dolphins, we continue on to our snorkeling location. The moment you plunge into the crystalline waters, you'll understand why this place is often regarded as an underwater paradise. Pristine coral reefs house a myriad of exotic fish, turtles, and the occasional manta ray offering an unparalleled snorkeling experience.

Finally, it's time for a Hawaiian style BBQ on the water, with the best view of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea. What better way to end the day?

Whether it's a special occasion like a birthday, vow renewal, or proposal, a Kona snorkeling and dolphin-watching tour guarantees memories that you'll cherish forever. So come make your own history in these ancient, sacred waters, and leave with a story that's uniquely yours. From the thrill of swimming alongside dolphins to the serenity of floating above coral gardens, every moment spent on a Kona tour is a step closer to fulfilling your Hawaiian dreams.
