Expedition South Kona

Perhaps you’ll visit a black sand beach and have it all to yourselves. Maybe a stone arch or a spectacular lava rock formation formed thousands of years ago by a young Mt. Hualalai. Pilot whales as long as your boat swimming alongside you, Hawaiian spinner dolphins playing in your wake. The diverse marine life abounds on this South Kona tour.

The Expedition South Kona includes culturally significant and visually spectacular snorkeling in locations such as Pu’uhonua O Honaunau and Kealakekua Bay, the pathway of the Gods. Enjoy lunch in the shade of the canopy within view of the monument to Captain Cook, with the cliffs of the bay soaring above you. On this Kona snorkeling tour, you explore the Southern coast of the Big Island and see things the majority of people who visit our sacred Island do not.
