After a light breakfast and short briefing we’ll depart Honokohau Harbor ready for a day you’ll never forget! Our Captain and crew are ready to answer any questions you have on our way to find our local Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. We’ll share stories about the incredible experiences we’ve had and get you ready to make some stories of your own! We provide everything you need for an amazing experience with these agile marine mammals.

Once you’ve had enough adrenaline for one day we’ll cruise along the coast on our way to one of our many reef snorkeling spots. There we’ll enjoy a delicious lunch while taking in the sun and scenery. Whether it’s a private beach, secluded cove, or our tropical fish packed reef near Kona town you’ll be once again blown away by our incredible island.

Afternoon Kealakekua Bay Snorkel

We’ll depart Honokohau Harbor and head south to world famous Kealakekua Bay. Once there we’ll provide everything you need for an amazing experience with our tropical reef dwellers. (And we might even run into the resident Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins!) Our guides will teach you everything you need to know about snorkeling technique and safety. We’ll even help you identify all the tropical fish you see. We’ll enjoy some light refreshments and snacks before heading back to the harbor while searching for any local marine life that may be out to play.

Get ready to see our Hawaiian gentle giants in action!

Every year more than 20,000 Humpback Whales return to Hawaii for breeding season and we’re lucky enough to enjoy their company. We’ll depart Honokohau Harbor aboard Hoku Elima in search of these majestic creatures. Our captains will be in constant contact with not only other vessels but also our spotters on shore to ensure we find you the best experience possible. While on board we’ll have light snacks and refreshments for you to enjoy while watching the whales do their thing. Soak up the sunshine while watching newborn whale calves playfully learning from their mothers or a group of males showing off for a mother to be. We’ll drop our hydrophone system underwater and listen to the incredible whale song while watching them play. With years of experience enjoying these huge mammals our crew will share their vast knowledge, funny stories and of course answer any questions you may have about the humpbacks. Be sure to bring a camera and we’ll take care of the rest. Prepare to be blown away!
