The Big Island of Hawaii is an amazing place to snorkel! Most of the very best locations are only accessible by boat. Allow us to schedule you with a tour which will guide you to the best and safest places to swim with the sea life. Preserving our abundant wildlife is also important, so entering the water from a boat saves harmful trampling of delicate coral reef. Snorkel trips include snacks and beverages and can be arranged on various types of vessels. Let us help you choose the best option for your group!
Join us aboard our catamaran; this snorkel adventure sail will take you to some of the best pristine reefs on the coast (more than a dozen sites to choose from).
