Here at Kona Snorkel Trips, we offer a variety of cool and amazing Kona ocean tours, but sometimes you’ve just got to have things your own way. We understand, and we are here to help tailor your ocean experience for your family or your group bringing you to the spots that are must-see in Kona Hawaii!

What you get when you book a private trip:

  • We bring the boat, the crew, and the fun. You just tell us where you want to go and what you want to do!
  • Want to play at some of the world’s top snorkeling destinations? – Yep, we can do that.
  • Want to slip into the water and watch huge, otherworldly manta rays swim below you? – We can do that too!
  • Want to lounge in the sun on our boat and look for whales during whale season? – Ditto?
  • Want to honor a loved one and say goodbye on the ocean – We can help with that too.

What the Private Signature Tour Includes

The Private Signature Tour looks different for each group we take out because you decide what you want to do. The morning tour can last up to 4 hours. We can leave first thing in the morning or start out a little bit later. The tour can include snorkeling, or just relaxing on the boat.

If you want to do something special, like conduct a team-building exercise, just let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes within reason.

Your Private Signature Experience can create lifelong memories for your family, help boost employee morale, or show your life partner how much you love them.

The Private Manta Tour gets you up close and personal with the graceful mantas of Kona.  This is a popular option for families and friends.

Please note that all ages are welcome on any private charters, but we do not have infant life jackets.  Parents should come with life jackets for their little ones under the age of 3.  The manta snorkel is not recommended for those under the age of 5.

There is a 7-day cancellation policy on all private charters
