I recommend taking this tour with Kona Snorkeling Tours. My 2 adult daughters and I were supported to take a tour on Wednesday 5/18/22, but an hour before our tour we received a phone call from Captain Chase that the Coast Guard was doing a boat inspection and our tour would be delayed. He was calling so that we could plan to come later, which I appreciated. I asked if we could reschedule for the following day and he allowed us to do so. The next day, he showed up on time and ready to go. There was a party of 3 that were not there on time. I witnessed him call the people, attempt to figure out where they were, speak to their Uber driver and determine they were in the wrong place and not close. He was friendly and professional, but told them that he could not wait for them and hold up the rest of the party. As a patron who was waiting to go, I appreciated this. But he offered to rebook them another day, which in my opinion, he did not have to do. I was impressed. It was a windy day and you are on a smaller speed boat so we felt the choppy water, which we thought was fun. It was a great boat ride to the bay where we snorkeled. We stopped periodically to see lava tubes, parrots, Pele, etc. We had plenty of time to snorkel by the Captain Cook monument and were able to see a lot of beautiful fish. After we snorkeled (the equipment was good...mask, snorkel and fins), we were given bottles of water and fresh pineapple. They cut up 3 for our part of 11. By the time we were to head back, the wind had picked up a lot. The swells were very big (I would guestimate about 10+ foot swells). Captain Chase made the wise decision not to go out further in the ocean to look for whales. Instead, we made our way back toward the harbor. However the current and wind were too strong. He decided to pull into a bay that was closer than the original harbor to dock and get us all on land safely. This was no easy task. He proved to be a knowledgeable sailor and despite not having a good place to dock, he made it happen. I grew up around the water and I know that you have to respect the ocean. I felt that Captain Chase was in charge the whole time and made good decisions that kept us all safe. Several of us had to take Uber back to the harbor we started from and he told us all to send him the receipt and he would reimburse us for the cost. We were able to see 2 pods of dolphins which was great. I definitely recommend this company and would go out with him again.

What a great ride!

We had a terrific Combo tour with Kona Snorkle Tours. Communication was great. We all met a little early, quickly boarded and were briefed on safety before setting off down the Kona coast on our Zodiac adventure. That’s right, a small Zodiac with 12 guests and 2 crew. Not a large Catamaran packed with 40+ guest all climbing over top of each other and bumping into one another in the water. Crew was awesome. We bounced down the coast to Captain Cook, stopping several times along the way to admire the cliffs and caves, encountered a large pod of dolphin and learned about some Hawaiian tales and legends. Once at Captain Cook the crew explained our surroundings and quickly got us into the water and snorkeling on the reef with all of the colorful fish. Back to the boat for some refreshing pineapple one back to the ocean for a fast and somewhat bouncy ride back to the harbor. Be warned this is a small vessel, it does move quickly and you will feel every wave. Wildlife is unpredictable and not guaranteed but we still found great pleasure with our experience. Thanks Kona Snorkel Tours.

Fun and joyful way to see the Big Island from the sea.

This experience was pure joy! We saw so much of the island, snorkeled in a beautiful cove, and laughed as we sang along with 1980s songs. We didn’t see dolphins or whales but we didn’t care. It was so much fun! Well worth the $$

One of the best parts of our trip was this tour. The boat ride is so fun and beautiful. We saw a small pod of dolphins at the very beginning and then a hammerhead shark very shortly. Even with the bigger waves this day, it was fantastic. Highly recommend

Exciting Adventure

Great experience. The boat was fast and fun. My son and I had a blast. My son is 9 yrs old, and a thrill seeker. Although it specifies ages 8 and up, I would be sure your child is ready for it. The boat is fast and bumpy, and is not for everyone. The tour guides had a wealth of knowledge and history of the area. The snorkeling was a lot of fun, and we saw a lot of different fish, sea urchins, and coral. We did not see other wildlife, but everything else made up for it. I would definitely do this again.

We saw spinner dolphins, a sea turtle, a lot of tropical fish and a whale shark, who swam right next to our boat. Enjoyed snorkeling Captain Cook's cove and a sea cave. Both captains were excellent, especially their stories about Captain Cook.

We traveled from California and Korea to enjoy the experience in Big Island. We were searching for swimming with dolphin tour, but due to the restricted law, we couldn't swim with them. However, we were able to do an amazing snorkeling as well as saw dolphins on the boat! There were many! We also saw manta rays while snorkeling. Colleen and the boat crew searched for the right spot. The crew was simply amazing to have the boat experience truly valuable. They made the ride really really fun throughout the experience. We'd definitely go back with this adventure!

Overall the trip was adequate. For the money spent the overall service and professionalism was lacking. No drinks offered and very little in way of snacks. Would not recommend this operator.

Fish were extraordinary, the captain and crew Captain Lance, Co pilot Amber aka Pam Andersen were informative, knowledgeable, and companionable, and we saw dolphins, and turtles as well.

A very informative trip from a local who obviously loves his job, told us stories of the past along the way. Of course the scenery is amazing, stopping and pointing out different areas along the way to Captain Cook. Once we arrived to the destination it did not disappoint. Mahalo for the great adventure!!
