Kona Ocean Adventures boats are perfect for the small groups we take out. Have fun in the sun in the open deck area or have it made in the shade under the sun cover! The boats also feature cushioned seats, fresh/hot water hand-shower, dry storage, easy-access step ladder and a marine "head" or bathroom. Bring your own gear, or we'll provide your mask & snorkel, fins and wetsuit at no charge!

This was our first trip to Kona, and Kona Ocean Adventures was hands-down our best discovery on the island. I've used guide services before, and Danny's a natural. Danny and Laure made my wife and I feel like they were just as jazzed about everything as we were. After our first trip with them, we literally changed our plans and came back three more times in the same week. We felt like it was the best way to get the most out of our time on the island. His boat is the perfect size, especially for dolphin runs, because it's easy for him to pick-up and change locations when the dolphins do. He really kept us right in the thick of it. There were probably 200 dolphins around us, and that's not a typo. The dude just knows where to go. Same with mantas, just amazing, then I do an impromptu tank-dive with him, and he turns up an octopus in like five minutes. He's one of those rare guys who knows his business inside and out but still doesn't take himself too seriously. Not only will we use Danny and Laure again, but we'll go back to Kona for that reason, because that's where they are. T & K Simmons

“Highlight of our Big Island Vacation” Just got back from our vacation and I had to write about our awesome time with Captain's Danny and Laure. We took the kids (ages 12, 9, and 8) on a "swimming with the dolphins" tour in the ocean on a private charter. Not only did we get personalized attention, Laure also took our "nervous Nelly" child into the ocean and stayed with her the entire time as dozens of dolphins swam all around us. We will definitely be back next year and seeing the manta's at night!! Thanks again for a wonderful morning!!
