Full description
Cruise ten miles down the Kona Coast to the snorkel destination, a protected marine sanctuary. Relax, you will have over two hours of water time to enjoy the marine life, underwater topography and coral reef. Cruise in comfort! The boat’s main lower deck features a large shaded cabin with cushioned seating, tables, premium bar, three restrooms, and fresh water showers. You won’t go hungry. Enjoy a light breakfast of tropical fruits, assorted pastries, bagels, juices, teas and Kona coffee. While you're taking in the fun, the crew prepares lunch. After snorkelling, belly up to a full-service premium cash bar, featuring a large selection of liquors, mixes and local brews. This boat hosts one of the only blenders on the Kona Coast. Your mask, fins, snorkel and prescription masks will be provided to you. For beginners, a friendly “Snorkel 101 Class” is available from the lifeguard-trained crew. A host of flotation toys, including noodles, vests, inner tubes and even “Sea View Boards” for those who don’t want to get their face wet. They even include the use of stand-up-paddleboards and an array of other flotation devices at no additional cost. Kids of all ages love the 20’ waterslide and high dive platform. If you want to kick back and do nothing, check out the floating “relaxation station”, the crew will swim you out refreshments. For the more adventurous upgrade to SCUBA or rent a GoPro or wetsuit.

    This was probably the highlight of our trip. On the way out to snorkel we saw baby and mama Humpback Whales as well as several dolphins. The whales were only about 200 feet away and the dolphins came up within 30 feet of the boat. While my wife and our kids were snorkeling, my mom and I stayed on the boat and enjoyed the view, food and fully stocked bar. The weather was perfect and the crew was really great.
