Ocean Adventures

Big Island Snorkeling Tour

With its stunning clear water and offshore reefs, the Big Island is of course famous for spectacular snorkeling and diving.  There is no shortage of ocean creatures to enjoy. Humpback Whales, Spinner and Bottlenose Dolphins, and Manta Rays all call the Big Island home. 

If you prefer to stay on top of the water, book a kayaking tour, outrigger canoe tour, or perhaps a surfing or stand up paddle boarding lesson. And what better way to end the day than with a Hawaii sunset dinner cruise?
