Day 3

Half Day Snorkel Sail to Captain Cook's Monument and Romantic Sunset Sail from Waikoloa

The Hoku Nui sets sail from Keauhou Bay at 8:30 am. Keep a watchful eye out for Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, Hawaiian Humpback Whales (seasonal Dec-April), and other marine life while you sail down the beautiful Kona Coast. As you enjoy your tropical-style breakfast, entering Historic Kealakekua Bay, you will observe the world-famous Captain Cook Monument (sail time approx. 45 min.) Your snorkeling adventure will begin in the pristine waters and the vibrant reef of the Marine Sanctuary of Kealakekua Bay.

Your captain will select the best snorkeling sites in Kealakekua Bay, while the friendly and professional crew members provide site briefings and historical facts. The crew members also provide snorkel tips and basic instructions to guests of all ages and experience levels. Life jackets, floatation noodles, and viewfinder boards as well as masks, fins, and snorkels are provided aboard the Hoku Nui. The crew members will help you enter and exit the water if needed and will provide fish identification cards. They will even take you on a guided snorkeling tour and have lunch ready when you have snorkeled up an appetite. Snorkel time is approximately one hour at each location.

Make sure to bring an underwater camera to capture the colorful schools of fish, pods of spinner dolphins that are also commonly spotted in the bay, and the landscaped ledges of ancient lava flows. You will then have a moment for another breathtaking view of the bay while you enjoy a sumptuous lunch with beverages. Exiting the bay, you set sail for "Red Hill" (weather permitting). The Red Hill area is home to unique underwater lava formations such as archways and lava tubes, and more snorkeling with schools of vibrant sea life. As your snorkel adventure comes to an end, you will set sail back to Keauhou Bay arriving by 1 pm (approx.), with majestic memories of your Sea Paradise trip that will last a lifetime.

In the evening explore the Waikoloa and Kohala Kona coastline aboard a 54-foot sailing catamaran. Catch the moment the sun slips below the horizon while you enjoy the cruise with a loved one. You may even see the green flash.

Board from Anaehoomalu Bay to snorkel, sail, and relax. The custom-designed sunset-orange and maile lei sail is a stunning contrast to the azure Pacific as it sails along the blue Pacific Ocean. Bask in the romance and relaxation of a stunning Kona-Kohala sunset cruise.

While you are on board, snacks and beverages will be served to you. Enjoy unlimited non-alcoholic beverages, two free bar drink tickets per adult, or purchase extra alcoholic beverages to feel at ease all night.
