Hang Loose Kona will show you some awesome snorkeling.
There are a few moments in life that are truly unforgettable. You’ll find one of those awe-inspiring experiences with the Hang Loose Kona Wild Dolphin Watch and Snorkel adventure. These awesome, friendly and playful dolphins live up to their reputation as acrobats and jesters of the Pacific. Come play with these mammals in their natural habitat, one of the most beautiful locations on Earth!
Your day’s exploration begins with an easy and seamless check-in on the north side of Honokohau Harbor, on the leeward side of the island. Just a few miles from Kona Town, the harbor is easy to find and has plenty of parking. Begin with a simple and thorough safety briefing from the crew. Once you’re set up with your snorkel, mask fins, wetsuit and flotation equipment, you’ll climb aboard the Hang Loose Kona tour boat. This 37’ vessel has excellent handling in these waters and offers plenty of shade and restrooms onboard. Accommodating for families with children and grandparents, yet adventurous enough for avid snorkelers, Hang Loose Kona really has it all.
Follow the stunning Kona coastline to your snorkeling destination, an area where the wild spinner dolphins are known to frequent. Keep your eyes out for their signature aerial spins and watch for them to leap from the water. They’ll often travel in large pods, and play near the bow and in the wake of the boat. Should you find yourself lucky enough to be in the water amongst these incredible creatures, make sure to be a gracious visitor. Treat them with the same space and respect the ancient Hawaiians would give to them. Deeply rooted in Hawaiian culture, these smart and intriguing animals are an invaluable part of the ocean ohana (family).
Spend a dreamlike morning out on the water, watching dolphins, snorkeling, snacking, and enjoying the simple pleasures in life. The sun on your back, the wind in your hair, and sharing ocean space with some of the Earth’s most majestic creatures. Make your reservation for this epic tour today!
