Dolphin Encounter and Snorkel - Splashers Ocean Adventures

Starting at: $85.00

Travel 17 miles south to Kealakekua Bay, home of the Captain Cook monument. Along the way, stop at historical sites and hear local legends and see points of interest. Your captain will watch for whales and dolphins. If the ocean conditions permit, they will let you get into the ocean for the dolphins to swim up and play with you. Once in Kealakekua Bay, you will get to snorkel for about 1 hour. You can expect to see turtles, brightly colored reef fish, coral that is over 1,500 years old, the Captain Cook Monument, fresh water springs, and possibly some Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Once back on board, lunch is provided. Travel another mile south to a second secret snorkeling destination, time permitting. On the return trip, stop at the sea caves and lava tubes, and visit Red Hill, where Madame Pele can only be seen by boat. Your knowledgeable crew will point out a few other points of interest on your return back to the harbor.

This tour was just what we wanted. Our guide, Sidney, was the perfect host for our trip. The boat was spotless and comfortable. The trip to Capt. Cook's was a sight seeing delight of water, sunshine, lava tubes and whales. Once at the cove our snorkel was almost endless in the under water scenes of Coral and Sea life. We next moved to the cove by the city of refuge, and again the under water panorama of fish,coral, and turtles made the time on the trip fly by. Our guide provided the physical and cultural history along the way, and made sure not to give us so much information that we were overwhelmed. It was an enjoyable way to start our Hawaiian adventure.

Planned our trip with Splashers, it got delayed for 3 days then when we showed up were put on another company's boat. The captain told some crude jokes(doesn't bother me but be glad my kids weren't there), we didn't get lucky enough to get on top of the dolphins but the snorkeling was amazing.

Our group of 8 had a great time from the minute we stepped on the boat! The crew was awesome and engaging, we saw more dolphins than Ive ever seen in my life, had a great time snorkeling and learned some of the history of the island as we toured around the shore. Would go again in a minute.
