Pricing & Availability

Overview

Observe spinner dolphins in their natural environment as they leap out of the water and follow the boat in pods! On this 4.5 hour cruise, there is ample time for water fun, dolphin, whale (mid-Dec to mid-Apr), and other wildlife spotting, or just relaxing while taking in the Kona shoreline scenery as you travel 10 miles down the coast. Snorkeling gear and snorkel class (as needed), a 20 foot water slide and high dive platform, a variety of flotation and water toys including viewing boards and paddleboards, and friendly onboard staff will keep you (and any kids) well taken care of and entertained.

Also enjoy a continental breakfast, a BBQ lunch with burgers (or taro patty for vegetarians) grilled onboard, and drinks, along with a premium cash bar. For your comfort, the spacious 65-foot 2-story boat has his and hers restrooms, plenty of seating and shade available, 2 fresh-water showers, and 2 staircases for easy entry & exit from water.
