Are you ready for a dolphin watching and snorkeling tour in Kailua-Kona?

Join us for a 4.5-hour adventure on a catamaran to explore Kona's underwater paradise! Every day at 8 am, we set sail to the crystal clear water of the protected marine sanctuaries of Red Hill, home to over 600 species of enchanting ocean wildlife. You'll have an excellent chance of seeing dolphins and other marine mammals during the cruise.

Our boat trip includes breakfast and BBQ lunch, and we provide all the equipment you'll need, including reef-safe sunscreen. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, our lifeguard-trained crew will give you an introduction lesson to ensure you're confident in snorkeling. The catamaran will depart from Kona and has a maximum capacity of 85 passengers.

You'll enjoy 2 hours of snorkeling in the Red Hill area, not Kealakekua Bay. Our 65' catamaran offers plenty of shade, cushioned seating, restrooms, and changing rooms. The boat also features a 20-foot water slide, a 15-foot high jump platform, double wide swim steps, and flotation toys. We'll provide all snorkeling gear, including Rx masks, life vests, inner tubes, and sea-view boards. You can also rent wetsuits from us. 

Our full-service premium bar offers local spirits, craft beers, and blended libations for purchase. We also provide sodas, juices, and snacks. You can relax on our island-style floatation station and try stand-up paddleboarding or enjoy our water toys. 

We want you to have a comfortable and enjoyable experience, so we offer fresh water showers and plenty of shade. Our crew is dedicated to making your trip memorable, and we welcome first-timers and experts of all ages to snorkel with us. Bring a towel, and leave the rest to us!
