Captain Zodiac

Captain Zodiac will take you to explore some of Hawaii’s most amazing sights along the Kona Coast. The destination is Kealakekua Bay which boasts some of the best snorkeling in the state of Hawaii. “This remote marine preserve features hundreds of colorful fish and beautiful coral,” says Owner Dave Burns. “The bay is a key place in Hawaiian history and site of the Captain Cook Monument, and guides ‘talk story’ about these cultural and historic events.”

Up-close encounters with marine life are an opportunity not to be missed on Captain Zodiac rafts. “We see pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, humpback whales (seasonal), pilot whales, sea turtles, and other rare species,” says Burns. “The small-group atmosphere of the adventure allows for a personal and intimate tour.”

Captain and crew are well versed in marine science, animal behavior, geology of the island’s lava flows, Hawaiian history, culture, and folklore. This makes for tours that are informative as well as fun. The captains are part-entertainer and all pirate!

Only highly maneuverable 24-foot Zodiac Hurricane RHIB can get in close to the sea caves, lava tubes, rock archways, blowholes and amazing scenery along the coastline. “With only a maximum of 16 passengers per raft, everyone has a great seat” adds Burns.

Tours depart from Honokohau Harbor daily.
