Captain Zodiac Raft Expeditions, Kailua-Kona

#16 of 130 in Tours in Kailua-Kona
Exploring the Big Island's Kona Coast on our 24-foot Zodiac boats is an experience of a lifetime!

For over 30 years our captains have introduced visitors to an array of nature’s secret wonders that can only be experienced in a Zodiac. The small group atmosphere of our expedition allows for a personal and intimate tour.

Only the Zodiacs can get close to the many lava tubes, sea caves, sea grottos and wave powered blow holes. You will learn how the island was formed as the Captains share their knowledge about the geology of the island’s lava flows.

Our destination is Kealakekua Bay, which is a National Marine Park and the site of the Captain Cook Monument. This area is one of Hawaii’s premier snorkel spots with incredible visibility and calm conditions. All snorkel gear, high quality silicone masks, Rx masks, fins, float boards and detailed instruction will be provided. Kealakekua Bay is full of Hawaiian history and the events will be recounted by the crew while you enjoy our tropical snack of fresh pineapple, fruits, chips, cookies and assortment of refreshing soft drinks.
