Ever dreamt of swimming with dolphins and snorkelling amongst Hawaii's incredible marine life? Look no further for a unique activity to make the most of your time on Big Island!
Swim with Dolphins & Snorkel on Big Island Hawaii
On the morning of your activity, you'll meet up at the pier in the stunningly beautiful Keauhou Bay, ready for an unforgettable experience in the tropical waters around Hawaii's Big Island.
Your day will begin with a brief session on the safety rules to respect while you swim with dolphins and snorkel amongst the coral reefs. You'll then climb aboard a small boat and set sail to the open sea, where you'll find wild dolphins in their natural habitat.
Here, you'll have approximately one hour to enjoy swimming in the sea surrounded by dolphins playing. A truly unique experience that you'll remember forever!
After your wild dolphin swim, you'll be treated to a well-earned snack on board the boat, before cruising over to Kealakekua Bay for around 10 am. The crystal-clear azure waters for which this part of the Big Island's coastline is known are ideal for snorkelling. Dive in and swim amongst the incredible coral reefs and other marine life with the verdant mountains of Hawaii as the picture-perfect backdrop.
In Kealakekua, you'll also spot the monument to Captain Cook, a British explorer.
Having made the most of your snorkelling experience, you'll sail back to Keauhou Bay, where you'll arrive back at around 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.
