from Spirit of Aloha Catamaran Snorkel Sail
This Spirit of Aloha Catamaran snorkeling excursion departs from the Waikoloa Resort, on the Kohala side of the Hawaii Island (the Big Island). The iconic Spirit of Aloha provides the ultimate in sailing comfort and snorkeling fun.

The Spirit of Aloha sailing and snorkel trip is operated by Hawaii Nautical, one of Hawaii's largest ocean-activity providers, with a fleet of vessels island wide serving many harbors across Oahu and the Big Island. They believe in delivering service, safety, and the spirit of Aloha.

They respect the ocean and the ecosystem, and follow strict guidelines so that all marine mammals and wildlife are protected. And they honor the host-culture and support the local communities in which they operate.

They want the natural environment you enjoy today to be here tomorrow, and for every tomorrow after. That’s why they are Hawaii’s first Dolphin Smart-recognized operator. NOAA’s Dolphin Smart educates guests about dolphin conservation and harassment and advises not to seek activities that pursue close interactions like swimming with dolphins in Hawaii in the wild.

They also follow the guidelines of the Coral Reef Alliance, to establish lasting change and promote coral reef health around the world. That includes sustainable practices — such as no fish-feeding. Coral conservation aims to save these valuable ecosystems, unite communities and preserve cultural identity.

They've been wowing guests of all ages for decades in Hawaii. While there's lots of excitement around the activities, they practice the highest level of safety in everything we do. They treat guests like ohana, the Hawaiian word for family that permeates everything they do.
