Welcome to Captain Zodiac! The original rafting company in Hawaii!

Captain Zodiac will show you some of Hawaii’s most amazing sights because we are the original ocean rafting company founded in 1974, over 4 decades of experience. We make memories and our goal is for you to say “that was best thing we did on vacation!”

Some of the best snorkeling in the state of Hawaii is in the crystal clear waters of Kealakekua Bay. This remote marine preserve features hundreds of colorful fish and beautiful coral. A key place in Hawaiian history and site of the Captain Cook Monument, we’ll “talk story” about these cultural and historic events.

Another part of our adventure is our close up encounters with marine life. We often see pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, humpback whales (seasonal), pilot whales, sea turtles and other rare species. Zodiac rafts are known worldwide as the perfect vessel to observe marine life. The small group atmosphere of our adventure allows for a personal and intimate tour.

Our naturalist captain and crew are well versed in marine science, animal behavior, geology of the islands lava flows, Hawaiian history, culture and folklore. This makes our tours informative as well as fun! The captains are part entertainer and all “pirate”.

Only our highly maneuverable 24-foot Zodiac Hurricane RHIB can get you in close to the sea caves, lava tubes, rock archways, blowholes and amazing scenery along the coastline. With only a maximum of 16 passengers per raft, everyone has a great seat.

“Just wanted to say what an awesome time we had on our snorkel tour with Colin. My boys and I and my husband so enjoyed his tour and his jokes. He was so knowledgeable about the area and we truly experienced an amazing morning. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and whales and a turtle and even wild goats. With your boats we were able to get to places we wouldn't normally have seen. Thanks again to you and Colin. He made our trip. What a great employee you have. I even learned how to cut a pineapple Thanks again Liane, Dave, Devon and Ryan Sherman Boston, MA”
