ShoreTrips says...

Remember that good equipment and perfect group size CAN be copied. What CANNOT be replicated is insightful narration about what you're seeing--and these fellows win the prize.

Your adventure begins as you board a rigid-hull inflatable boat as your raft. This is the perfect means of transportation for this tour as its design absorbs bumps better than a regular rubber raft. The fact that you will have a group of no more than 12 also sets this tour apart from others. Additionally, this crew does the best job of narrating on these waters and will get you close to the coastline.

As we journey along the coastline, we'll poke the boat into several "sea caves" while explaining how they're formed. You'll have two opportunities to snorkel: one at the Captain Cook Monument and then beyond to Honaunau, which is the Place of Refuge. In each case, our crew will take you snorkeling in spots that are not nearly as crowded as others.

Sit back and relax on the return trip as the guides take their time bringing you back to reality. Explore the sea caves and lava tubes along the way.

This company has multiple rafts, as well as one larger one. If you have a group, contact ShoreTrips and we will be happy to help arrange an outing for you.
