Dolphin & Kealakekua Combo Tour
Swim with Dolphins and Snorkel at Kealakekua Bay* (Captain Cook Monument)
Enjoy our morning Dolphin Swim and Kealakekua Bay Snorkel in one tour!! Come join us on our 40ft boat “Uhane Nui O Naia” (which means Great Spirit of the Dolphin).
This amazing experience is one not to pass up while here on the Big Island, swimming with Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins and snorkeling at one of the best coral reefs in the Islands. You will be swimming with Dolphins that are 100% free and in their natural environment. All of our Dolphin swims are conducted with the utmost respect for the Dolphins and the entire marine environment, as we are guests in their world. Dolphins are among the most intelligent Beings on the planet and swimming with them in their own environment will amaze you.
Kealakekua means “The Pathway of the Gods” and is the largest sheltered bay on the Island and it offers some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. This is a place of beauty, historical significance, and a very sacred site. The crystal clear bay is abundant in sea life, the waters are calm and the coral reef is visible up to 100 ft. K-bay, as it is sometimes referred to by locals, has been designated as a Marine Life Conservation District and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also the home of the Captain Cook monument that marks the spot of the first recorded European contact with the Native Hawaiians of the Big Island.
Our Ocean Lifeguard/First Aid/CPR Certified Crew members will share the protocols for swimming with free Dolphins and snorkeling respectfully in Kealakekua Bay before anyone enters the water. This grand adventure is guaranteed to be a lifelong memory that will touch you deeply.
Join us on Tuesday or Saturday mornings and let your adventure begin. Check in is at 7:30am at the boat in the Honokohau Harbor. We will depart by 8:00am for a journey along the pristine Kona Coast. We will end the adventure back at our slip in Honokohau Harbor around 1 p.m.
*Dolphin swimming will be on the way to or from Kealakekua Bay, as swimming with Dolphins is not allowed in the Marine Life Sanctuary from permitted activity companies. Time with the Dolphins is more limited on this tour since we are also going to Kealakekua Bay. If swimming with Dolphins is what is most important, you may prefer our regular Dolphin Swim where the entire trip is devoted to finding and swimming with the Dolphins.
NO DOLPHIN POLICY: We do Not guarantee Dolphins. Success rate of swimming with Dolphins on this tour is 85–90% since we are limited to the route to and from the Bay. No refunds will be given for no Dolphins. If we were not to find Dolphins on your day, we invite you to go again on a space available, standby basis. Keep in mind space may be very limited especially during the busiest times of year. If we cannot get you out on your current stay, we will extend the return offer to your next visit. There is no expiration date. Offer is non-transferable and has no cash value.
