Amazing eco-friendly reef snorkeling


Captain Cook’s Monument, and the legendary “Place of Refuge” are in one of the most sought-after snorkeling destinations in all the world, Kealakekua Bay. This spot is also cherished and revered by the Hawaiian people and they have recently increased the restrictions to this beautiful, island cove. Kona Ocean Adventures is proud to retain one of the dwindling number of permits, and we’ll be happy to take you there!

Kealakekua Bay is the largest sheltered natural bay on the island of Hawaii. Your naturalist captain will share with you the regal tales of Hawaiian folklore and history as you travel to pristine Kealakekua Bay. Snorkel among beautiful tropical fish living in the coral gardens, then enjoy a a delicious lunch including local fresh cut fruits, a variety of snacks and sandwiches and more. We will share the geology of the island as you venture into sea caves and past lava tubes!
