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.
