Captain Zodiac

Hawaii’s Big Island Original Zodiac Rafting Tour Company

Captain Zodiac will take you to explore some of Hawaii’s most amazing sights along the Kona Coast! Our snorkel destination is Kealakekua Bay where you will find some of the best snorkeling in the state of Hawaii. 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 “talk story” about these cultural and historic events.

Up-close encounters with marine life are an opportunity not to be missed on our Zodiac rafts. We often see pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins, humpback whales (seasonal), pilot whales, sea turtles, and other rare species. The small-group atmosphere of our adventure allows for a personal and intimate tour.

Our captain and crew are well versed in marine science, animal behavior, geology of the island’s 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.

Creating connection to the past, present, and future through sustainable travel. Help us protect our reefs by using sustainable practices such as reef safe sunscreen and reusable water bottles. We have both available for  you!
