Activity Tips

Kevin Ditamore – Owner / Manager

Waikoloa sunset cruises are a great way for people who are staying at one of the Kohala Coast resorts on the Big Island of Hawaii to get out and experience the ocean. For those who are active enough to snorkel, we would suggest one of these same boats for a Waikoloa snorkel trip instead, and for most guests they will do one or the other … but not both.

If you do wish to snorkel AND go out on a sunset cruise, we’d suggest a snorkel experience on the Fair Wind II or Captain Zodiac rafting and then do one of these sunset cruises.
