Kealakekua Bay is consistently ranked as one of the top 5 snorkeling locations in the world. The Bay is a state historical park and underwater marine sanctuary. The name “Kealakekua” means “Pathway to God” and the “mana” (spiritual power or energy) can be felt here by all. The large bay provides calm waters year-round and is home to thousands of Hawaiian reef fish. Kealakekua Bay is the home of the Captain Cook Monument commemorating the death of Captain Cook at this bay on February 14th, 1779. The waters here are clear, offering great visibility. This lively snorkeling spot is also sometimes home to dolphins, sleeping reef sharks and other marine life.
The ocean is at the heart of what we do. Without the vast ecosystems and diverse species on our reefs, there would be no underwater world for us to educate, explore and enjoy. Our snorkel tour to Kealakekua Bay provides guests with world class snorkeling, as well as cultural, and environmental information relevant to the island of Hawaii. Along with the snorkeling and history, your captain will show you several spectacular, unique volcanic geological phenomena including sea caves and lava tubes.
