Consistently Superior / 5 of 5 stars
The boat and crew of KOA makes a day on the Kona Coast a magical and comfortable experience. Plenty of shade, cushioned seats, quality gear for snorkeling, and wonderful food make this operator one of the best bets for families or just people who don't want the rugged bouncing ride in an inflatable. They take you out to see and swim with dolphins as well as look for other ocean inhabitants like mantas and whales... while also keeping you and the marine environment safe. I recommend KOA to everyone who asks about snorkel trips.
The best in town. / 5 of 5 stars
If you want to have an enjoyable boat ride that is not crowded, slide in to observe dolphins and manta rays as they swim by, hover over shallow reefs with colorful tropical fish, eat home-made goodies under the shade cover, all while being taken care of by a friendly and knowledgeable snorkel guide and captain, Kona Ocean Adventures is the choice. The co-owners, Danny and Laure, are personable, easy-going, and make sure that you enjoy your time on the ocean. Thumbs up!
best trip ever / 5 of 5 stars
Wow what a highlight this trip was for us! I have lived on the islands a long time and have been on many boat trips. We loved this particular one more than any other we 'd been on!
Very experienced and professional crew! I want to highly recommend this very fun and adventurous trip to anyone. My 7 year old daughter keeps bugging me since, to go out with Kona Adventures again. A BIG Thank you to the dolphins and CREW OF KONA ADVENTURES!!! Mahalo for an amazing trip!
Hands down the best! / 5 of 5 stars
We knew we wanted to take a boat tour while on the Big Island and a friend referred us to Kona Ocean Adventures. Let's just say I owe her more than a thank you note... It was just myself, my husband and one other couple on this tour... we were greeted by a huge pod of 200 (no joke) native spinner dolphins. And, we got to snorkel right next to them! Not just one chance to snorkel with them, but four times! ...I would recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing water tour in Kona. Don't go anywhere else...trust me.
So many friends began as our customers... It's what we love the most about what we do!
