Our unique daytime snorkeling adventures include Kealakekua Bay, site of the Captain Cook Monument, which is located on the site of the former Hawaiian village of Ka’awaloa. Kealakekua Bay and Ka`awaloa are one of the most historic places in the state of HawaiI, and, according to Hawaii – The Big Island Revealed, The Ultimate Guidebook, “Snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay near the monument is perhaps the best you will find anywhere in the state.
Honaunau Bay – Pu`u Honua o Honaunau (The Place of Refuge at Honaunau)
As a bonus, our DELUXE MORNING ADVENTURE & the EXPEDITION SOUTH KONA tours snorkel at Honaunau Bay, the site of Pu`u Honua o Honaunau (The Place of Refuge at Honaunau). The Place of Refuge is also a very historical site as well as a National Historic Park administered by the National Park Service. Honaunau Bay offers excellent snorkeling and a chance to have a Honu experience! Honus are Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles, and they like to hang out here.
Sea Caves & Lava Tubes
When we are not snorkeling or eating, we are exploring the Sea Caves & Lava Tubes along the rugged Kona Coast. Our boats were built narrow enough that we can actually go inside many of these caves along the coastline. These caves were formed by wave action over thousands of years. Of course, we ask you to remain seated at all times while inside the sea caves. Lava Tubes are different from sea caves in that they are formed by the rivers of flowing lava when the top layer of the flow cools and hardens.
