If it’s the first time you’ve ever gone diving or snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay Marine Sanctuary in Hawaii, this place might just be what you’re looking for. This location has become a popular spot among those who know how great their ocean surroundings can look beneath the surface – even from as deep down as 30ft below sea level. With such depth range being possible here due to these waters’ average clarity which reaches about 100 ft visibility rate. You’ll find yourself at ease and comfortable with the waters of this cove. You don’t have to worry about novice snorkelers getting eaten by a shark or anything like that because this is one safe place for you! We offer several types of flotation devices so our customers can take their time, relax when they need it most.
The Place of Refuge isn’t just a monument to the past, it’s also an excellent National Historic Park with many features. Honaunau Bay is one such feature that offers fantastic snorkeling opportunities and don’t forget about honu! One of the most prized creatures is a Hawaiian green sea turtle, which has been nicknamed Honus. They are found in abundance at this beach and we ask that everyone leaves them alone to do what they please without touching or harassing them! The EXPEDITION tour also snorkels at a third site chosen by us based on prevailing conditions for your safety.
