Home > Wahine Charters
The Wicked Wahine is a charter boat operation which departs from Honokohau Harbor in Kailua-Kona to enjoy wild dolphin swims, reef snorkels, Manta Ray night snorkels, whale watches and tours to the Captain Cook Monument and marine reserve in Kealakekua. Taking a maximum of only 12 people, their 29' Coast Guard Certified power vessel with comfortable padded seating, a bathroom and shaded area when you need it, is clean, efficient and well designed. Although Wahine Charters encounters wild sea life on its multiple voyages it acts responsibly when visiting these beautiful animals. Aggressive behavior toward any sea creatures is not in the playbook, and although they may get close to these animals on the boat, or swim close to these animals in the water, the proximity of the encounter is always determined by the animal itself.
Join Wahine Charters for a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the graceful nighttime ballet of Kona's giant manta rays. Kona is the only location on the planet where you can get in the water at night and have an over 90% chance of encountering these gentle giants.
Join Wahine Charters as we cruise the beautiful Kona coastline and look for Hawaii's friendly spinner dolphins. It's not uncommon to encounter both the spotted dolphins and the bottlenose dolphins all on the same trip! We practice responsible dolphin interactions and will only enter the water if the dolphins are willing.
