If you have a little pirate in your heart, step aboard matey and explore the scenic Kona Coast by 24-foot Zodiac ocean raft in an intimate, small group format.

Your captain/naturalist will "talk story" about Hawaii’s history and the beautiful scenery on your 12-mile exploration of the coast.

Seek out pods of dolphins, sea turtles, (whales January through April only,) and other marine life along the way.

You’re headed to Kealakekua Bay -- site of the Captain Cook Monument, accessible only by boat, and an area of unsurpassed importance in Hawaiian history.

Listen to snorkeling instructions (all gear is provided); then hop into the waters of the Kealakekua Bay Marine Preserve -- home to hundreds of varieties of tropical fish and coral formations. Its calm, pristine waters make it a perfect snorkeling spot.

Enjoy a tropical snack of fresh local pineapple, fruit, chips, soft drinks, water and cookies while the captain tells tales of Captain Cook’s encounters with the Hawaiians and the history of the bay.

Photo opportunities abound as you get close to the many lava formations, sea caves and blowholes of the coastline. This tour is full of fun, adventure and education.


Minimum age is 4 years. Maximum weight is 320 lbs. Ride will be bumpy. Pregnant women or guests with back or neck problems are not allowed to participate. Waiver must be signed and medical conditions disclosed. Participants must be able to step from dock down into the zodiac. You will view the Captain Cook Monument from the boat only, as going ashore at Kealakekua Bay is strictly administered by National Park Service lottery and permit system. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed.
