Get ready for sand and sun on this relaxing Kona beach excursion. Set off from the pier to Kahaluu Beach Park, where you will have access to one of the Big Island's most beautiful beaches. Located a few miles south of Kailua Kona, the Kahaluu Beach Park is considered one of the finest snorkeling beaches in Hawaii for both novice and experienced snorkelers. Beaming with colorful fish and coral it is also a feeding ground for the Hawaiian Sea Turtle. Protected by a breakwater, the snorkeling area remains relatively calm even during higher surf conditions. The south end of the bay provides for better snorkeling while the north end is exposed to the waves that attract surfing enthusiast. Sunbathing and picnicking areas are also available.

Bus was on time and very comfortable . Driver was attentive and pleasant. Only issue was the sharpness of the rocks where you snorkel . Sand is also very coarse. But those issues are not able to be changed and doesn't effect the pleasant trip to the beach.
