Snorkeling, kayaking or scuba diving. Whatever your like the most, Kona offers options for everyone. During the day or night, on the surface or deeper, the charming city on the west side of Big Island has water activities that will give you an unforgettable experience.

Snorkeling is one of the most popular activities in Hawaii, independent of the island. It is a practical and inexpensive way to interact with the local marine life, as well as a first step for those who want to dive soon and literally go deeper in Hawaiian waters. In Kona, on the Big Island, the most appropriate place to practice snorkeling is Kealakekua Bay, with magnificent corals and frequent presence of friendly spinner dolphins. Leaving this same bay you can make a kayak tour and visit Captain Cook monument.


The most popular attraction in Kona is underwater: the night dive with the manta rays, which can be done with snorkel or scuba diving, depending on your preference. The city also offers diving options with other species of animals, with an amazing wildlife diversity, including dolphins and sharks. You can also dive at Turtle Pinnacle, an amazing cleaning station for turtles, located just off the Honokohau pier, which is also a stunning dive site. In the Ho’ona Bay there is a huge population of eels and beautiful corals.
