Award Winning Kealakekua Bay Raft & Snorkel

For over four decades, our Captains have introduced visitors to an array of nature’s secret wonders that can only be experienced in a Zodiac. The small group atmosphere of our expedition allows for a personal and intimate tour.

The sounds of the sea provide the background as your Naturalist Captain “talks story” about Hawaiian folklore and history. Frequent sightings of dolphins, manta rays, turtles and other marine life add to the adventure as you zip across the waves on this exhilarating and fun expedition. The quick moving and agile Zodiac boats provide excitement that has made them recognized worldwide as the best way to explore the marine environment.

Only the Zodiacs can get close to the many lava tubes, sea caves, sea grottos and wave powered blow holes. You will learn how the island was formed as the Captains share their knowledge about the geology of the island’s lava flows.

Our destination is Kealakekua Bay, which is a National Marine Park and the site of the Captain Cook Monument. This area is one of Hawaii’s premier snorkel spots with incredible visibility and calm conditions. All snorkel gear, high quality silicone masks, Rx masks, fins, float boards and detailed instruction will be provided. Kealakekua Bay is full of Hawaiian history and the events will be recounted by the crew while you enjoy our tropical snack of fresh pineapple, fruits, chips, cookies and assortment of refreshing soft drinks.

Due to the bouncy nature of our ride however, we do not allow any persons with back or neck problems or pregnant ladies.
