Find a Cruise



$75 Per Person

You will find, as we did, that this area is the prettiest part of Kona. This experience is also the most enjoyable. Your vehicle will be a comfortable rigid hull inflatable raft, a vessel that has become very popular for touring. It allows you to travel with smaller groups into smaller places. To access the caves, these rafts do not have any shade on board and we suggest that you wear a hat and a good sunscreen, one without oil. For your convenience, snorkel ladders make your entry and return from the water very easy.

Expect a fun run along the rugged coastline between Keauhou and Kealakekua Bays and then enjoy about 1 hour of snorkeling at the Captain Cook Monument. You do not need to know how to swim or snorkel for this trip. Flotation vests are available and snorkel instruction is gladly given. You will also explore sea caves and lava tubes. If you're lucky you might see some dolphins, an occurrence on over half the tours that go out. Whales may also be seen during Humpback season from December to April.

After snorkeling, beverages and tropical snacks are served.
