A very interesting and fun experience. Got close to lots of dolphins and the snorkeling was great with plenty of fish and lots to see. Both guides were very nice and extremely knowledgeable. Recommend the trip to all.

Nice snorkeling pot in Kona. 3 ways to get there (by boat, kayak and hiking). In my opinion, kayak is the best option. Morning is a nice selection.

After researching, we learned that we needed a permit to kayak and land on Captain cook. We got a last minute trip after calling for tickets the same day. We had a blast kayaking and snorkeling. While we did not see any dolphins this time,...More

Guests receive full refunds or can reschedule when guides cancel a trip due to high surf or wind, lightening, or any other situations which make paddling dangerous.
