With more miles of coastline than any other Hawaiian island, the island of Hawaiʻi is a haven for marine life. The calm and clear waters of Kona are shielded from the winds by Maunaloa, making it a perfect place to snorkel, scuba dive or go on a manta ray dive at night. These waters are full of interesting marine life from honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles) to deep-sea game fish—which makes Kona a popular destination for sports fishing. Of course you’ll also find koholā (whales) that visit every winter, as well as the sperm whales, pygmies and false killer whales that are here year-round.
If you’re not interested in kayaking, surfing or parasailing, the beautiful beaches of the island of Hawaiʻi are a great place to simply relax and dip your toes in the sparkling water. Experience a snorkel cruise with Fair Wind and always remember if you are exploring Hawaiʻi’s underwater world, remember how fragile the ocean environment is and mālama kai (take care of the ocean). More than a quarter of the sea life present in Hawaiʻi is found nowhere else in the world so please don’t touch the living coral or the animals and plants surrounding it. Even though the honu look friendly, remember they are an endangered species and touching them could harm them. Have fun in the water, but with all marine life, keep a respectful distance—for their safety and yours.
Take a ride out to see if you can spot a migrating blue whale during the winter and early spring months.More
