Stay away from the crowds and explore the best snorkeling and beaches the Big Island has to offer all by yourself with this private charter tour. Families and small groups have the opportunity to enjoy a 4 hr boat trip, fully catered, with a couple of itinerary options. During the winter season all these trips include whale watching!
Typical family itinerary (snorkeling + beach combo)
Families often choose to go snorkeling on reefs that are pristine and only accessible via boat, but there also is the option to go to a private white sand beach that is only accessible by boat or by a ROUGH 4wd ride or a hot hike.
That beach includes great snorkeling, is in the area that is the epicenter for humpbacks during the season, is located behind the beach a freshwater spring called the “queens bath”, and includes the option of daytime snorkeling with mantas.
More adventurous charter options (fishing charters and pelagic water swims)
More adventurous groups can opt for adventures further offshore that may include deep sea fishing or pelagic water swims with a numerous variety of animals that live in the deep blue ranging from whale sharks to pelagic mantas. We often times find pilot whales, Sperm whales, and hammerhead sharks.
Captain Cook Snorkeling Trip
As private charters we also offer a Captain cook monument trip that includes snorkeling at two different spots (one being Kealekekua Bay) and the option of cliff jumping at safe locations in coves that are sheltered from surf.
The rate for this charter depends on the total amount of participants:
- 1-6 passengers – $1,400
- 7-12 passengers – $1,750
- 13-18 passengers – $2,150
