Kona is still very laid back and serene as are the various snorkel sites you will visit.
From December through April our waters are filled with the annual migration of humpback whales coming down from Alaska. Capt. Eric comes with years of experience of running whale watches and it is one of his personal favorites! These magnificent up to 50 ft and 50 ton leviathans are a sight to behold. Join us as we enjoy them for their short stay birthing, breaching, teaching their young and making more babies. Other whale species like pilot whales, whale sharks and sperm whales swim in our waters as well!
One of the thrills of snorkeling in the beautiful waters of the Kona Coast is getting to swim with the graceful Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, known in the Hawaiian language as "Honu". They have existed for over 150 million years and are truly one of Mother Nature's ancient creatures and totally harmless!
Our sunset trips are another one of Capt. Eric s favorite! Join us and find out, if there is really is such a thing as a green flash?? Bring your favorite champagne and we will compliment it with chocolate and strawberries. Bring you favorite beer and we will compliment it with chips and nuts, pretzels and such. Bring your own wine and we will provide cheese and crackers. Or just bring your anything favorite, either way we will make it an unforgettable experience!
Scuba diving is Capt. Eric's all time favorite ocean activity. He has explored the waters of almost every ocean in this world and believes in very mellow and safe scuba diving! Leading dives for over 30 years ensures a exceptional experience underwater. No egos and no rush! Tanks & Weights Provided! 4 Hour Trip Minimum
Our overnight trips are unique on the island, not offered by any other powerboats except for live-a-boards. Definitely only for the adventurous ones accustomed to the constant motion of the ocean. One of the options is to take our kayak to the beach once we are at anchor and explore the oftentimes very deserted shoreline looking for rare shells or maybe make a small fire! This can be one of our more romantic trips right after that sunset cruise or manta magic.
