Ocean Safari

The adventure begins the moment you set foot on our vessel! Our tours are set up safari-style which means from the start of the tour we are going to be scanning the gorgeous and dramatic coastline of Kona for any type of wildlife to observe and interact with. With the rapid and deep drop-off of the sea floor along the coast, we have the potential to swim with shallow water animals as well as pelagic (deep, open ocean) marine life.

This tour’s focus is to find & observe wildlife and snorkeling is included. While nature is unpredictable and we cannot guarantee any specific interactions or observations, we have the potential to see sea turtles, various fish species, dolphin and whale species, sharks, and manta rays.
