Spend Your Morning Snorkeling & Exploring Two of Big Island’s Secrets

Take in the Big Island of Hawai’i as you haven’t before, and experience two of South Kona’s most precious treasures –Pu’uhonua O Honaunau and Kealakekua Bay. Listen as the captains relay stories detailing the rich cultural and geological history of the Island. Explore the sea caves, lava tubes, and see the diverse marine life that’s abundant off of the shores of Kona on this snorkel tour. Snack on tropical fruit, local chips, and chocolate covered macadamia nuts. With a maximum of only 14 guests per tour, the Deluxe Morning Adventure is a personal and unique snorkeling adventure not to be missed.

Make the Most of Your Time in Kona by Snorkeling Pu’uhonua O Honaunau and Kealakekua Bay

On our deluxe morning snorkel tour of Kona we will have more than one opportunity to drop into the water and explore an incredible reef! That means more chances to get up close and personal with hundreds of tropical fish, sea turtles, and maybe even a couple of dolphins should they come to explore our boat!

We treat each adventure out with care and excitement. Our goal is to give our guests the best possible experience while in the water while keeping them, as well as the natural marine world around them, safe.

Both Pu’uhonua O Honaunau and Kealakekua Bay are rich with culture and marine life. The Big Island is the youngest within the chain of major Hawaiian Islands and through that there is so much just at the surface to explore from the comparatively recent journey of the lava. For example, Pu’uhonua O Honaunau is protected by the “God of Life”, Lono. it is an extremely sacred place filled with not only lush reefs but important structures to Hawaiian history and culture. It is a place of reverence as much as it is beauty.

Kealakekua Bay also is an extremely important piece to Hawaiian history, outside of the beauty we will see on our snorkeling expedition. Famous for being the first place the westerners made extensive contact with the native Hawaiians, we are permitted to snorkel inside the bay which is also home to hundreds of tropical fish and other sea creatures.

There are no greater 2 spots than these to knock off your tropical snorkeling bucket list! Relax on the boat trip out and soak up the son, learn more about the cultural and historical significance of these two spots from our knowledgeable captain and crew, and enjoy lots of time in the water amongst the beautiful life below the water’s surface.

Start Your Day Right with Our Morning Snorkel Tour of Kona

There’s arguably no better way to start the day than some saltwater therapy. Our snorkel tour will bring you to two of the most gorgeous reefs in Kona where you will get to drop into the ocean and float around next to an incredible array of sealife.

Beat the heat in the early morning and enjoy the chance to jump in not just once, but twice! We can’t imagine a better thing to wake up to than a school of colorful fish or even a honu (Hawaiian sea turtle), swimming by!

There are so many memories to be made, and with the small crew and group size allotted aboard our boat for this tour, there are no crowds that will block you from exploring it all!

Enjoy the Best of Kona’s Snorkeling Spots on Our Deluxe Morning Tour

As mentioned, the two main areas we will explore (Pu’uhonua O Honaunau and Kealakekua Bay) have a vibrant history and array of animals that live within their waters. Beyond that, our morning snorkel tour will explore the sea caves and lava tubes, carved out through the formation of the Big Island. Our trip out to the reefs are almost as fun as being in the water as spinner dolphins and humpback whales (when in season) are known to put on a show just off the bow of the boat. You may get to see breaches above the water or maybe even a baby whale calf learning to swim alongside its mother. 

We make sure to make every aspect of this snorkeling tour enjoyable. You will get the chance to just sit back and relax enjoying local tropical snacks and juices while lounging aboard the vessel.

If you are looking for an experience while in Kona that will tick every box that you list out for your vacation in Hawaii; there is no better time than now to book your Deluxe Morning Snorkeling Tour with us!
