Hear from your guide about the marine animals and history of Kealakekua Bay, which was the birthplace of the Hawaiian monarch, King Kamehameha III, and the burial place of 18th-century explorer Captain Cook.
When you reach Kealakekua Bay, hop in the warm water for snorkeling at a coral reef loaded with tropical fish.
Your tour includes a picnic lunch served on board the boat, snorkeling instruction, and use of snorkeling gear. Be sure to bring swim gear, dry clothing, towel, and sun protection. Your tour ends with return to the harbor in Kona.

I booked tour with Fair wind 15 days in advance.I think 10 days in advance should be OK. There are other good companies also so you don't worry on that count.Further, cancellation policy allows cancellation without penalty.
