One of the surf slang terms most of us are familiar with, or at least have heard of, is the phrase, “hang loose”.

Since its emergence in the 90’s, “hang loose” has now become part of the Hawaiian informal language, and Hawaiian natives, in fact, even have a hand gesture for it, called the shaka. This popular phrase actually means to have a relaxed and carefree vibe, and so it’s no wonder why the people behind Hang Loose Boat Tours named themselves so! Hang Loose Boat Tours offers fun package tours, such as the Wild Dolphin Watch and Snorkel, which will certainly leave you feeling relaxed, carefree, and just plain happy, as you indulge in the astounding beauty of Kona Coast in Hawai’i!

Kona Coast, which stretches almost two-thirds of the entire west side of the island, is known for its pristine waters and vibrant marine life. In booking Hang Loose Boat Tours’ Wild Dolphin Watch and Snorkel, you will be able to intimately appreciate these Kona Coast pleasures!

The tour begins with a cruise along the coast, on board a large 37-foot luxury catamaran. It is a fairly new equipment that guarantees a stable boat ride en route one of the finest snorkel sites in Big Island, and on the way, you will not only see beautiful coastline and ocean views but also get to hear fascinating tales about Hawaii from the captain and crew themselves! This is not the highlight of the tour yet, but you certainly will have had an amazing time already, with all the sights and stories of the ultimate island life. 

Upon arrival at the snorkel spot, get ready for an unforgettable underwater adventure! The Hang Loose crew will provide you with the necessary snorkel gear, which is inclusive of the tour price. Below the surface, marvel at the stunning underwater views of Kona Coast and all the marine life in it, such as green sea turtles, colorful tropical fish, and Hawaiian spinner dolphins and even whales, if you go during the winter season. You will also be able to see great coral reef formations down under, something that the Hawaiians take pride in and take great care of. With the waters so clear and the sights so stunning, you’d surely want to snap some photos to remember the experience by. Those who do not have underwater cameras need not worry, as Hang Loose Boat Tours sells underwater disposable cameras to its guests for a very reasonable price!


If you opt to stay dry but still wish to come along, Hang Loose Boat Tours’ Wild Dolphin Watch and Snorkel has a “Rider” option suited for your preference. Above the surface, you can still have a great time appreciating the views of beautiful Kona Coast and watching wild dolphins while they enjoy themselves in their natural homes. Keep your eyes peeled for these precious marine mammals as they love rising above water and leaping high into the air. This is certainly an above-the-surface sight you wouldn’t want to miss!
