Dolphin Discoveries Afternoon Snorkel at Kealakekua Bay

Dolphin Discoveries - Captain Cook Afternoon Snorkel

This combination dolphin / whale watching and snorkel tour is 3 hours of fun. Come on board the Nai'a Nui, a 28-foot rigid-hull inflatable adventure craft and cruise along the historic Kona Coast, featuring views of sea caves and lava tubes. The destination is beautiful Kealakekua Bay, a protected marine preserve and home of the Captain Cook Monument. Here you can snorkel at one of the nicest marine sanctuaries in Hawaii, surrounded by numerous curious fish that live among the vibrant and colorful coral reefs. After snorkeling, we'll head out to find a pod of spinner dolphins (and, in the winter, you'll also go looking for some whales as well!)
