Ever seen a black sand beach? Swam in a lagoon full of sea turtles? Join us on a fully guided and narrated beach snorkel tour along our pristine Hilo coastline! Our volcanic beaches are renowned for their abundant sea turtle population, and our brackish water bays and lagoons are home to a wealth of sea life including octopus, eagle and manta rays, eels, corals, and tropical reef fish! Your experienced snorkel guide will teach you about the beautiful and lush surroundings, how our beaches and volcanic islands are made, and about the abundant marine world below. First time snorkelers and children are welcome!
Choose between the morning tour (9:30 am) or the afternoon tour (1:30 pm). The tour begins either at our dive shop or just outside the port at the Keaukaha General Store (pickup from your guide). Your guide then transports you to one of the many beach snorkel sites for a tour of the reef! The tour will last approximately 3 hours. You can expect to see a healthy population of local reef fish and Hawaiian Sea Turtles! Tours include rental gear, water, tea, juice, healthy snacks, and transportation for the duration of the tour. After your tour we will provide transportation back to the Hilo Ocean Adventures shop or Port.
