Dolphin Discoveries - Dolphin Discovery Adventure

Experience a fun dolphin watching cruise aboard a raft along the south Kona coastline. Departing from Keauhou Harbor, we'll start the tour cruising to look for one of the many pods of dolphins that are frequently seen in this area.

The Dolphin Discoveries crew has nearly 20 years of experience looking for wild dolphins. They have the utmost respect for not disrupting the dolphins' rest, nursing and breeding behaviors.

After viewing the dolphins, we’ll leave them to their natural resting cycle and head to a snorkel site to enjoy the water and other marine life around, which includes colorful tropical fish and green sea turtles.
