Join the friendly and knowledgeable crew of Jack’s Diving Locker on a Dolphin/Whale Watch & Snorkel cruise. We set out looking for residential pods of Spinner Dolphins that swim along the Kona coast in family groups of 50 – 100 animals. Occasionally, small groups of Bottlenose Dolphins say hello while swimming in the bow wake.
During the winter months, we often view Humpback Whales from the boat. These magnificent mammals come to the warm welcoming waters of Hawaii to mate and give birth. Kona is also home to pods of Pilot Whales that travel a few miles offshore in the deep blue water. Join us for a glorious day on the boat while we cruise the coastline looking for these amazing cetaceans and slip into the water for some snorkeling on a coral reef.
This cruise is for snorkelers or riders.
Family groups welcome.
