Private Catamaran Charter
From US$926.99
Cruise and snorkel along the South Kona Coast aboard a private catamaran during this 4-hour charter from Kona. Meet your local captain aboard the comfortable, spacious boat and set off in search of adventure. Don the provided mask, snorkel and flippers, then jump in and snorkel in the aquamarine waters of the Kealakekua Bay. Sail past The Grotto, Parrot's Cove and Red Hill, listening to tales of local history and culture from your captain. Perch on the ship's bow, searching for pilot whales and spinner dolphins in deeper waters. Enjoy personalized attention and a flexible itinerary on this private tour.
What to Expect
Spend the morning exploring the diverse marine life and amazing reefs along the Big Island’s South Kona Coast. Both the catamaran and Captain are at your disposal. Search the deep blue waters for Pilot Whales, explore the white sand beaches North of Kona, observe and join Hawaiian spinner dolphins in the warm Kona waters, or snorkel at historic Kealakekua Bay directly in front of the monument to Captain Cook.
We will head South, hugging the coastline and pausing to relay the stories of some of the more fascinating points of interest such as Red Hill, Parrots Cove, and The Grotto among others. All the while, we are scouting for Hawaiian spinner and bottle nose dolphins, both seasonal and resident whales, green sea turtles, whale sharks, rays and more. This charter is a wonderfully intimate way to spend a morning on the water.
