Whales and Cocktails at Sunset. Relax on the deck in the warm ocean breezes as you cruise the Kohala Coast with Ocean Sports on our Well-Appointed Power or Salling Catamarans. For the best snorkeling experience, we depart from Kawaihae Harbor on calm waters and sunny skies. The Hawaii North Kohala Coast’s pristine waters are yours to explore when you board the Black Pearl.
Your tour includes a boat ride along the crystal-clear water and stops for snorkeling at two different locations. Early morning rides often feature sightings of spinner dolphins, as well as an abundance of flying fish and, on occasion, even manta rays leaping from the water. We can ride north to Mahukona and Lapakahi National Parks if the weather is clear. Ride south towards Puako on the best days. At each snorkeling spot, we’ll be there anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. In between sites, there is plenty of time for a snack. In Kawaihae Harbor, we come to an end to our journey.
- Cruise the beautiful Kohala coast in style on our luxury power catamaran
- Include A Hot and Cold Pupu Buffet
