What to Expect

Step aboard a 65-foot catamaran for a fun-filled day of adventure! Experience the crystal clear waters of the protected marine sanctuaries of Red Hill, home to more than 600 species of enchanting ocean wildlife and only accessible by boat.


On this tour, you'll have the opportunity to spot spinner dolphins on the way to the snorkel site. Snap a picture from the boat because the tour does not swim with dolphins. This 4.5-hour cruise includes continental breakfast, BBQ burger lunch, plenty of shade, cushioned seating, restrooms, changing rooms, and showers. Once anchored, you can jump off the high-dive platform or slide down the 20-foot waterslide to enter the ocean. You'll have about two hours of water time.


This family-friendly tour offers snorkelling in some of the most crystal clear waters in the world! The tour includes gear, instruction, life vests, and inner tubes. If you want to keep your head out of the water, chill at the lotation station island or use the water toys, sea-view boards, stand-up paddleboards, and noodles to enjoy the environment. Don't forget to apply reef-safe sunscreen! 


Cocktails are available for purchase from an onboard bar offering local spirits, craft beers, and blended libations. Wetsuits and GoPro cameras are available for rent. You just need to bring a towel and a smile! This is a perfect activity for first-timer snorkelers or expert swimmers of all ages as the tour provides all of the equipment you’ll need - including reef-safe sunscreen. Beginners will be confident snorkelers quickly after the fun introduction lesson from the lifeguard-trained crew. Enjoy the inspiring world of Hawaii’s underwater paradise!

The bigger the boat, the more stable it is. The vessel is 65 feet in length with a 30-foot beam - it's the largest boat of its kind on the Kona Coast. It’s a totally different experience than being on a smaller boat or a raft. If you know you are prone to seasickness, it's recommended you take Bonine or Dramamine the night before and one several hours before your cruise. Please read the directions to see that you are able to take this medication. You are more likely to feel better on the lower deck of the vessel as there is less pitch. The tour also offers complimentary ginger pills and a ginger drink, which is great for motion sickness.
