  • Snorkeling gear is provided, as are inner tubes and flotation devices
  • The boat features a 15-foot (4.5-meter) water slide
  • Snacks, fruit, water, and juice are provided
What to Expect
Check in a half hour before your tour time at Keauhou Bay Pier. From there, enjoy the sights of the Kona coastline as you head out to Kealakekua Bay on your boat. Along the way, catch a glimpse of spinner dolphins who are known to pop up near the shore. Once in the bay, the onboard crew equips you with snorkeling gear and provides instructional guidance for beginners. Also available are an assortment of flotation devices for those who would prefer not to swim. After your time in the water spotting reef fish, coral, and other sea life, try out the boat’s water slide. From the top deck, make a big splash into the water. Light snacks and water and juice are provided free of charge. The tour ends back at Keauhou Bay Pier.

An excellent trip, superb crew, fairly tasty lunch. Well worth the price but the boat could use a little more shade.
