This private charter includes your own private boat with captain and crew exclusively for you and your family for a great price. Sport Fishing for Marlin, Ono, Ahi and other Pacific Ocean Pelagic Species. Snorkeling with assorted Reef Fish and Ocean Life.
Guests spend half the tour fishing and trying for Marlin or some of our native game fish such as Ono or Mahi Mahi. The rest of the day is up to you based on what's happening in the waters off shore. You will enjoy total comfort and safety while taking in the splendid scenery of the Big Island, the Pacific Ocean and the local Marine Life.
In Kona our visitors have the rare treat to experience the Manta Night Snorkel. The experience of seeing these massive gentle creatures in the wild is exhilarating.
The Manta Night Snorkel is an experience you have to see for yourself. The Kona mantas in many instances are 16 feet from wing to wing. They glide through the water like birds feeding on tiny plankton.
Our boat was specifically designed for this tour. The Kona Night Snorkel is fantastic for all guests, whether you are in the water or simply observing.
