On Hawaii’s Kona coast, about 30 minutes by boat from Kailua, Kealakekua Bay is designated a Marine Life Conservation District. This well-developed and colorful coral reef, one of Hawaii’s finest, rife with fish life, slopes steeply from shore into the crystal clear, deeper water. Visibility reaches depths of 100 feet here.

After your captain selects the best snorkeling site, your friendly crew offers snorkeling tips and helps you in and out of the warm, inviting, blue waters. You’ll learn names of your new fish acquaintances, perhaps meet a spinner dolphin or two, or swim with a Hawaiian green sea turtle.

In addition to transportation, professional guide/crew, and snorkeling equipment, a delicious lunch – sandwiches, upcountry vegetables, tropical fruits, cheeses, pasta, famous Maui-style potato chips and, of course, white chocolate Macadamia nut cookies for dessert – caps the return trip to the dock. Complimentary soft drinks, water, beer and ale and sparkling wines are also part of the trip.

Be forewarned...Kealakekua Bay is said to be the home of Lono-i-ka-makahiki, the Hawaiian fertility god.
