  • 4 hours

Explore the Kona Coast of Hawaii's Big Island from a new perspective: snorkelling in its crystal-clear turquoise waters and discovering its incredible marine wildlife

Big Island Hawaii Snorkel Tour

No trip to Hawaii's Big Island would be complete without experiencing the breathtaking biodiversity of its underwater world! Dive into the sparkling azure waters around the different bays of the Kona Coast and enjoy snorkelling amongst the coral reefs and tropical fish.

After meeting at the pier in Keauhou Bay at 8 am, you'll begin your day with a quick safety briefing so you can enjoy your snorkelling experience without a worry. Then, you'll climb aboard a small boat and set sail towards the beautiful Kealakekua Bay.

The waters here will leave you breathless with their virgin beauty: marvel at the incredible flora and fauna in the crystalline seas along the Hawaiian coast. You'll see colourful fish swimming around the extensive reefs and much more! 

Cruise over to Honaunau Bay next, where you'll get to see a number of statues in the Pu'uhonua National Historical Park. What do you think these sculptures were built to protect?

As well as snorkelling in the different bays, you'll enjoy a well-earned snack on board the boat to renew your energy. And that's not all: for the finishing touch on your tour, your captain will sail you over to another secret bay... you'll discover where on the day of your activity!

At the end of a fantastic morning, you'll cruise back to Keauhou Bay at 12 pm.


If you want to enjoy this activity without having to worry about organising transport to Keauhou Bay, select the option that includes transfers between your hotel and the pier. If you choose this hotel pick up option, please indicate the name of your hotel when making your reservation.
