Description

from Deluxe Morning Wild Dolphin Swim and Kealakekua Bay Snorkel
Our deluxe morning dolphin swim excursion is basically two exciting tours in one! This 4-hour adventure takes you to sea in our super safe Willard Navy Seals boats to swim with wild spinner dolphins, to experience their energy and curiosity in interactions with humans. Following the dolphin swim, you will travel south to explore the sea caves along the Kona Coast, and go snorkeling in the calm waters of Kealakekua Bay Marine Reserve (and location of Captain Cook Monument), often called the best snorkeling spot in Hawaii, and only accessible by boat (or a very long hike). After exploring the colorful reef, you can relax aboard to enjoy a fruit platter, other snacks, and green tea, while learning about the historic and cultural background of this region. On our way back to Keauhou Bay, you may see other natural sea creatures such as whales (Humpbacks, in season), manta rays and sea turtles.

Includes:
• Snorkel Equipment
• Floatation Aids
• Fruit Platter, Snacks & Beverages

It was amazing. Dolphins were not there the but we were able to come back the next day and this time dozens of them were all around us. The group is small and allow us to discover more. Highly recommand.

This was by far the most amazing experience of our trip. And as quoted by our soon to be 16year old daughter… Coolest thing she has seen in her life. Cassie and Bambi were awesome. This was a small group of only five of us which was perfect. Not like other tours that had 15 to 20 people or more with them. Time flew by faster than we ever imagined. With so many sightings and manta rays spanning 12 feet within inches of our face. Cassie and Bambi were awesome. This was a small group of only five of us which was perfect.

We had 2 groups go out with Bambi and her team on Sunday July 16th. A group of 4 sailed at 6:30 to watch the sunset and then circled around to dive with manta rays. Our group sat at the lookout point at the Sheraton and had a drink while waiting for them to return. They had a great time! The 2nd group of us were 6 who went out later (8pm) to hang with the mantas. The crew had wetsuits to fit all of us. Before and during the experience they told us so much interesting information about these amazing creatures. Don't miss out on this experience of watching the manta rays in the water- it is a once in a lifetime! Book with Kona Ocean Experience- you won't regret it!!

Bambi is great and gives a very thorough history of the area. On both excursions we went on (dolphin snorkel and night manta snorkel) we saw exactly what we paid for and her and her crew were AMAZING!!!! Will definitely be going out with them next time were on the island
