What You'll Get
Board your 18-passenger boat at Honokohau Harbor in Kailua-Kona and travel south to Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park, home to the Captain Cook monument. Along the way to the marine conservation area, your captain and crew stop at historical sites to discuss local legends and points of interest. If conditions permit, you'll explore nearby sea caves.
Arriving at Kealakekua Bay, you'll have approx. one hour to snorkel (gear provided). Expect to spot green sea turtles and brilliant reef fish on the ancient coral beds. Be on the lookout for spinner dolphins that call this bay home; their pods, including babies, can easily contain hundreds at a time. There is a high chance you will encounter these nocturnal eaters that return close to shore in the morning to play and swim curiously alongside you. Pilot whales and small pods of Pacific bottlenose dolphins are also commonly found in these Big Island waters.
Visit, too, the Captain Cook monument and freshwater springs. A lunch of deli wraps, fresh fruit, granola bars, chips, juice and water are all provided on board before you return to the marina.
