The Big Island of Hawaii offers some of the best snorkeling in the world. The waters of the entire Kohala Coast are filled with tropical fish, sea turtles, and much more. While you can snorkel just off the beaches, you can not get the full experience unless you take one of the snorkeling tours.
Ocean Sports is the most convenient company, which offers tours that depart from A’Bay at Waikoloa Beach Resort, which is within walking distance from most vacation rentals in the Waikoloa Beach Resort.
Kealekekua Bay offers the best location for snorkeling in the area. Kealekekua Bay is located in Captain Cook where the Big Island of Hawaii was first discovered. Kealekekua Bay is one of the largest bays on the island and is a marine sanctuary. There is an abundance of tropical fish and at times a pod of spinner dolphins will stop by. Not only does Kealekekua Bay offer wonderful snorkeling, but the scenery is also amazing.
