Discover Big Island dolphins while you snorkel in the famed Kealakekua Bay! Enjoy epic coral gardens and passive-swimming with the resident dolphin pods.


The Big Island's Kona Coast is one of the best areas on the Big Island to get an up-close view of dolphins in the wild. Your guides will usher you away to secret spots where it is highly likely to find these beautiful creatures. If conditions permit, you will be able to observe the dolphins in the water, but it is very important not to disturb them mid-rest, and your guides will assist you in the proper viewing etiquette without upsetting their natural cycles. Guests may get to swim with the dolphins depending on where they are, and what they are doing during the tour's duration.
