Kealakekua Bay

is a marine protected area (MPA) known for abundance, biodiversity, coral cover, and some of the best Kona snorkeling. Boat entry puts you next to a sheer lava wall with prolific fish traffic. Just past the point is Captain Cook’s monument. It’s a great snorkel trip & fun boat ride with dolphin watching, breakfast & BBQ lunch.
