South Kona Snorkel Destinations

Our Deluxe South Kona Cruise features two unique snorkel locations along the stunning South Kona Coast, with Turtle Rock often selected as one of the sites. Encounters with Pyramid Butterfly fish and green sea turtles are common in this area. Several other incredible snorkel locations are utilized at the Captain’s discretion based on daily water conditions.  These areas include the Red Hill region renowned for its various reefs, rock formations, and abundant marine life – and also Pali Kaholo which is located approximately 10-miles South of Kealakekua Bay (which is occasionally utilized as well).
