Are you ready for this Kailua-Kona morning snorkel & marine life encounter?

This boat tour shows off the beauty of Kona's reefs, including underwater lava formations, marine life, and a lot of tropical fish.
Spend your morning in paradise with our lifeguard-certified tour guides exploring Kona's cleanest coral reefs. Kona's coastline is endowed with some of Hawaii's most beautiful reefs.

We have a choice of eight local reefs, all of which are within 15 minutes of Honokohau harbor, where the adventure begins. The majority of these Kona snorkeling spots can only be reached by boat. Skip the long boat ride and the crowds of Kealakekua Bay and join us for an exciting snorkel tour with a shorter boat ride to places where we may be the only people. Shorter boat rides allow you to spend more time in the water where the action is!

This Deluxe Kailua-Kona morning snorkel tour starts as we cruise out of the harbor in search of surface marine life. Dolphins, manta rays, and whales are occasionally spotted along the way. If we're lucky, we might be able to spot the elusive whale shark! We choose our first snorkeling spot in Kona, and a lifeguard-certified water guide takes us on an adventure in the water. We take a break after the first reef snorkel to enjoy light snacks and non-alcoholic drinks onboard. We'll talk about the fascinating creatures we saw while snorkeling and share some local history about the island.

To round out our adventure, we chose a second Kona snorkeling location. We’ll keep an eye out for more wildlife on the fun boat ride back to the harbor. Please keep in mind that spinner dolphins and whales are protected under the Marine Mammal Protection Act and can only be seen from a certain distance. If dolphins try to engage us, we must take precautions to avoid them.

This Deluxe Kailua-Kona morning snorkel tour differs from others in that it focuses on delivering an experience that is not dependent on anything other than relaxing and enjoying the moment, as opposed to a destination like the Captain Cook snorkeling tour or an animal like the Manta Ray snorkel. It is easy to find a reef that is untouched and can't be reached from the shore. This means that you and your group will have access to some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii all to yourselves.

Because of our boat's size and speed, you will have an exclusive experience not found on other larger boats. Our guide and captain will attend to all of your needs and those of your party. When it comes to Kona Snorkel Tours, we go above and beyond to ensure that you have an unforgettable experience. There is so much to see on the Deluxe Kailua-Kona Morning Snorkel & Marine Life Encounter, and each trip is unique. From December to April, you may be lucky enough to see humpback whales as they migrate from Alaska to Kona's coastline. 

From a distance or up close, you might see them play, slap, jump, or just spout! Kona is also well-known for its manta rays. Occasionally, they will come in close to be cleaned by fish cleaning stations on the reef during the day. It's amazing to watch these massive creatures float motionless while tiny fish pluck the bugs that cling to their skin. You never know what you'll find on Kona's reefs!

Join us on the Deluxe Kailua-Kona Morning Snorkel, and we'll show you a good time on the water. You can soak up the sights and sounds of our beautiful island home with the boat ride, snorkeling, and all of the sea creatures. Non-swimmers can enjoy the sun's rays. To snorkel, kids under 18 must be at least 3 years old, be good swimmers, and be with an adult at all times. There are no exceptions; everyone in the party must be able to converse in English for safety instructions.
