Dolphin Discoveries Captain Cook Afternoon Snorkel
This combination dolphin / whale watching and snorkel tour is three hours of fun. See the sea caves and lava tubes of the historic Kona Coast as we head to Captain Cook's Monument at Kealakekua Bay. At Kealakekua Bay you’ll snorkel one of the nicest marine sanctuaries in the Hawaiian Islands. As you snorkel, you will be accompanied by hordes of curious fish that live amongst the vibrant and colorful coral reefs. After snorkeling, we head out to find some of Hawaii's famous spinner dolphins (and, in whale watching season, you'll also go looking for some whales!)
