Come aboard the Spirit of Kona, a 70-foot (21-meter) double-deck power catamaran and Kona’s only boat designed for viewing marine life above and below the water’s surface. Departing from the pier in the heart of Kailua Kona, your cruise offers the chance to view dolphins, manta rays, turtles, and a variety of tropical fish through two large glass-bottom wells. Along your route between Kailua-Kona Pier and Keauhou Bay, your onboard naturalist describes the coast’s marine life and historic sites. Savor a full 360-degree view from both decks to watch dolphins and whales, or just sit back and enjoy the beautiful Kona Coast. Equipped with the newest state-of-the-art Caterpillar engines, the Spirit of Kona is eco-friendly to marine life and the environment.
