Awarded "2006/2007 C.R.U.I.S.E.
Tour of the Year" by Princess Cruises
Whale Watching is from our 24 ft Zodiac rafts which
give you a “front row seat” and are fast so we get into viewing
position quickly. This also means the rafts can take a little
splashing during transit so we suggest wearing clothing that
can get wet (such as swim suit and cover up, or windbreaker
etc) and for camera/video equipment some water proof protection
while underway (plastic bags and backpack).
Hawaii’s most experienced rafting company, Captain Zodiac Raft
Expeditions established in 1974, invites you on an intimate journey
to Kealakekua Bay, Hawaii’s finest marine preserve and the site
of Captain Cook's Monument.
Departing from Honokohau
Marina located 3 miles north of Kailua-Kona, your captain will
entertain you with Hawaiian folklore and Kona history as you travel
along the scenic Kona coast. Keep a lookout for Hawaii spinner
dolphins, green sea turtles, manta rays, humpback whales (during
the winter months) and other marine life that are often encountered
on the expedition.
Explore lava tubes and sea caves as you
travel the inaccessable shores and get the feeling of traveling
back in time on this remote coastline. Marvel at the incredible
geology as your captains entertain you with their narration and
excite you with their skillful driving in rafts just like the
Navy seals and the U.S. Coast Guard use.
Reservations for CRUISE SHIP GUESTS must be booked directly through
the cruise line.

We had a great morning trip with Shane and Jennifer.
The ride was amazing... saw lots of spinner dolphins and a couple
sea turtles. They gave us great information about the island. The
best excursion not to be missed!!!

Had an unbelievable time with Sam and Captain Jack last week. What
a phenomenal tour. Not just the scenery but the knowledge Sam and
Jack had about the island, ocean, and culture were amazing. I really
recommend touring with Captain Zodiac.

Chris and Joy did a great job today. We saw beaked
whales- apparently a rare sight! We were also entertained by a pod
of spinner dolphins. The coral reef and various fish, blow hole,
sea cave, lava tube, and other coastal sights were amazing! Chris
made some fun sharp turns to add some excitement for the kids on
our zodiac boat ride to our snorkel sight. We were all hoping the
moms wouldn't fall out LOL. Joy told an interesting story about
Captain Cook as we observed the monument to him on the shore where
he was killed.
