You are invited to join an intimate journey to Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii?s finest marine preserve and the site of Captain Cook's Monument. During your Zodiac Raft and Snorkel Adventure you may sight marine life such as the local spinner dolphins, humpback whales and of course Hawaii's famous turtles.
Departing from Honokohau Marina located 3 miles north of Kailua-Kona, your captain will entertain you with Hawaiian folklore and Kona history as you travel along the scenic Kona coast. Keep a lookout for Hawaii spinner dolphins, green sea turtles, manta rays, humpback whales (during the winter months) and other marine life that are often encountered on the expedition.
Explore lava tubes and sea caves as you travel the inaccessible shores and get the feeling of traveling back in time on this remote coastline. Marvel at the incredible geology as your captains entertain you with their narration and excite you with their skillful driving in rafts just like the Navy seals and the U.S. Coast Guard use. Snorkel among beautiful tropical fish living in the coral gardens (approx. 1.5 hours), then snack on a tasty Hawaiian snack in the marine sanctuary. Learn about the geology of the island as you venture into sea caves and past lava tubes.
The Rigid Hull Inflatable Zodiac vessels used are 24 feet in length, powered by twin outboard motors to produce a quick moving and highly maneuverable ride. The rafts are perfect for exploring the shallow coves, sea caves and lava tubes located along this coastline. Each boat can hold up to 16 passengers.
Due to the bouncy nature of the ride, the Zodiac Raft Whale Watching Adventure is not recommended for those with back or neck problems, or pregnant ladies. The Kona Coast has the calmest water and the fast moving Zodiac is the least likely vessel to cause seasickness.
