Glass-Bottom Boat Lunch Cruise & Dolphin Watching

by Blue Sea Cruises
  • Free cancellation
  • No booking or credit card fees

Set out aboard the Spirit of Kona for an unforgettable dolphin-sighting experience along the Kailua-Kona coast. Enjoy a deli-style lunch as you watch the marine world pass by from the open decks and underwater windows of a glass-bottom boat.

As your vessel pulls away from the Kailua Pier, grab a seat next to the large glass-bottom viewing wells or find a spot along the balcony on deck—the perfect vantage point for watching the aerial acrobatics of wild spinner dolphins as they frolic and play in the waves that rolls off the ship’s bow. During the winter months, watch the horizon for humpback whales as they breach and splash in the distance.

Cruise along the rugged, volcanic coastline and listen in as an on-board naturalist points out historic sites and locations with special meaning for the Hawaiian people. Savor a light lunch of sandwiches, cookies, and chips as you learn about the unique oceanic ecosystem of the Big Island and the rich variety of sealife that swims beneath you.

As the boat skims over live coral gardens filled with vibrantly colored tropical fish, gaze into their serene and luminous underwater realm. Keep your eyes peeled—these coastal waters are also home to green sea turtles, manta rays, and even sharks.
