Depart from Kawaihae Harbor, convenient to Kona-Kohala resorts, and head along the rugged and scenic shore of Kohala, viewing lava walls, rocky points, patches of sandy beaches, and gulches rising to the Kohala ridge -- the oldest part of Hawaii Island. Pods of dolphins can be spotted along this shore and whales in whale season. It is a serene and unspoiled scene with very little boat traffic, making for an extraordinary experience. Snorkeling is among some of the best on the island, and ours is often the only boat at the sight. Snorkel sights include Lapakai State Park, Puako, Crystal Cove, Turtles, Beach 69 and Kiholo Bay. Sitting above Kawaihae Harbor is Pu'ukohola Heiau, meaning hill of the whale.

Snorkel gear and in-water assistance from the expert crew are included. Picnic lunch, soda, juice & water served.
