Highlights
  • Snorkel at a protected Big Island marine sanctuary on the Kona Coast

  • Play in the water with a diving platform, waterslide, paddleboards, and more
  • Includes breakfast, lunch buffet, and a premium cash bar
What to Expect
Depart from the Kailua Pier and sail down the scenic Kona Coast to Red Hill, a marine sanctuary and prime snorkeling spot that's only accessible by water. Get comfortable on the double-decker catamaran featuring a shaded cabin with cushioned seating and tables, an upper sundeck, and three restrooms with freshwater showers. Enjoy a light breakfast when you board and a grilled buffet lunch midday, plus beer, wine, and blended drinks from the premium cash bar. Get basic snorkeling instruction, if you need it, and then explore the reefs with provided snorkeling gear. You can also splash into the water via a high-dive platform or deluxe waterslide, try out a stand-up paddleboard or “Seaview board,” or simply bob up and down in a floating relaxation station. Above the surface, keep an eye out for spinner dolphins that often pass nearby.

  • Our guest’s safety is our number one priority. While we encourage guests to bring their own mask, fins and snorkel, we DO NOT allow the use of full-face snorkel masks on our vessel, the Kanoa II. During snorkeling activity, the need for more oxygen requires us to breathe faster. With a full-face mask, some of the exhaled carbon dioxide may not fully exit the device and it is possible to breathe in the contaminated air. That has potential to lead to unconsciousness.
  • Most travelers can participate
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 105 travelers
Cancellation Policy

Yes! The ladder is well below the water level and the employees are always right there to assist.

Yes for both questions. Just check the timing. We left at 8:00 am. Not sure what time you’re docked or how long.

No, it is not in that area. You go out along the coast past Kona. About an hour.
