Dolphin Reef & Captain Cook Snorkel Adventure

We enjoyed the snorkeling portion of this tour. Our boat captain was 45 minutes late due to boat maintenance problems. We finally got underway and spotted a school of bottle-nosed dolphins then some humpback whales. We had a blast snorkeling which lasted an hour. The wind picked up substantially. Our boat ride back was very, very rough. We were coming off the seat and hitting our tailbone. One senior slid off her seat. it was then the captain made arrangements to pull into a harbor nearby and we were shuttled back to the pier. The captain can't be blamed for the weather. I would not recommend this for elderly person or anyone with back issues for this reason.

Excellent snorkeling & dolphin sightings. One is only able to see the Capt. Cook Monument from the water. It was a disappointment to not be able to go on land to have a photo with the monument. One is not told that in the information.

Got to swim with the dolphins then head over to captain cook snorkel spot. Water was clear the tour guides were awesome. Gave some history on the way back. There will be no bathrooms once you leave the pier so make sure you go before you go LOL. Would definitely recommend this tour

We had Buddha and I believe maybe Chris? (Sorry!) and they were absolutely wonderful. Took us to the best place to snorkel and even showed us some really awesome sights along the way with some history.

Just got back to the ship after an amazing afternoon at dolphin reef and captain cook memorial snorkeling. On the way to the coral reef snorkeling we got to stop off and get into the water with a pod of around 30 dolphins! An amazing experience. The two tour guides were awesome and very knowledgeable of the area and folklore. Also felt like a private tour as there was only 4 of us on it. If you are in Kona 100% do this tour! Free lunch and drinks included too :-)

We loved our guide on our snorkel adventure. On our zodiac boat we got up close to spinner dolphins and the volcanic coastline. It was a relaxing time on the water and perfect amount of time doing it.
