Set out to discover some of the best snorkeling—and dolphin sightings—along the beautiful Kona Coast aboard a state-of-the-art, 65-foot (20 m) catamaran. Dolphin sightings are guaranteed or come again for Free! Become comfortable in the tropical waters teeming with a spectrum of tropical fish on this fun-filled outing suitable for all ages.

Once boarded onto the Kanoa II, you'll be ready to indulge in the first-class amenities and settle into a shaded, cushioned seat while your knowledgeable captain steers the boat towards the finest snorkeling spots. A delicious breakfast of fresh tropical fruit, pastries, yogurt and granola is provided. Along the way, don’t forget to scan the boat’s wake for smiling spinner dolphins.

After a brief cruise, you arrive at a marine preserve only accessible by boat. At the snorkel site, the lifeguard trained crew will conduct a snorkeling safety briefing and you will be ready to strap on your snorkeling gear and explore the warm Hawaiian sea. Double wide swim steps help to make access in and out of the water effortless. For the more adventurous, certified SCUBA or Discover SCUBA is avaialble for an addtional charge. Or for a more thrilling water entry, take a plunge off the 20-foot (6-m) water slide! Join more than 600 underwater species in the swim of a lifetime, set against a backdrop of stunning coral reef gardens. Go-Pro cameras and wetsuits are available to rent on board.

Post-dip, take a break for delicious BBQ burger lunch on the boat. Then you might choose to play with the provided water toys, take a leap into the ocean via the high dive platform, or simply lounge on the floating relaxation station with a cold libation from the no host bar! Soda, water, coffee, tea and juice are complimentary.

Our guest’s safety is our number one priority. While we encourage guests to bring their own mask, fins and snorkel, we DO NOT allow the use of full-face snorkel masks on our vessel, the Kanoa II.

During snorkeling activity, the need for more oxygen requires us to breathe faster. With a full-face mask, some of the exhaled carbon dioxide may not fully exit the device and it is possible to breathe in the contaminated air. That has potential to lead to unconsciousness.

The entire experience was a blast. There was plenty of good food, the staff were funny, friendly, and helpful. The captain kept everyone informed of next steps and interesting island features and history, and the snorkeling was terrific. Lots of fun right off the boat for adults and kids not inclined to snorkel. We even got to see dolphins, whales, and flying fish on our way to or from the pier. Highly recommend this company and adventure!!

This was probably one of the highlights of our trip on the Big Island. While we didn't see any dolphins, we did get some up close whale watching. The crew was so much fun, yet took their job very seriously. Snorkeling was amazing and the food provided was top notch. Would definitely do it again next time we come to Kona!
