My family and I had an unbelievable day with Kona Sea Adventures! Captain Cyrus is so knowledgable and friendly, he made the entire day a delight! We swam with a wonderful pod of wild dolphins, observed Humpback whales breaching and playing AND even got to swim with Manta Rays! The boat itself is incredibly spacious and comfortable and we couldn't... More

My family and I stayed in Kona recently and I have to say this was our favorite activity we did while we were there. We went on a morning charter and could not have been more lucky! We got to swim with dolphins, see some whales and even managed to get some fishing in while enjoying the sun! We were... More

Captain Cyrus provides a delightful cruise on the Kona coast. My favorite? His dolphin swim experience. Cyrus clearly has a deep passion and understanding of the ocean and its creatures. I have learned so much from him. He treated the animals with great respect, avoiding the frenetic chase I have seen from other boats. And yet - he had a... More

My wife and I have enjoyed several cruises with Captain Cyrus. He and his crew are committed to making your sea adventure a wonder-filled experience. We enjoyed ourselves immensely! I highly recommend a cruise with Kona Sea Adventures.

Definitely a new fave on the Big Island! I visit family in Kona about once a year and we've gone on a few different charters. This one was great because it was just us family and friends, and we could choose to do whatever we wanted. So we did a little dolphin swim, and then whale watching and fishing. The... More

If you're interested in an authentic ocean adventure away from the crowds look no further. My family and I have been to the Big Island many times and have tried numerous operators over the years but we've finally found our favorite. The owner, Captain Cyrus, grew up in Hawaii and is extremely knowledgeable about the marine environment, not to mention... More

It can be a challenging decision when trying to choose a fishing charter go with Kona Sea Adventures it's a no brainer! As a concierge and an island local I have to say that Kona Sea Adventures is a must do! My family comes to visit a couple of times a year and we always charter a fishing boat. My... More

When I got to Kona there were so many different adventures to go on and I didn't know which to choose... After talking to a few locals I found out the best things to go and see are the carters that allow you to see the Dolphins an whale watching. Snorkeling was a must too!! Snorkeling can be really hit... More

What a lovely experience! I went out on a morning charter that included all kinds of magical things such as swimming with dolphins, whale watching, and fishing. Kona has so much beauty to offer and spending the day on a private charter snorkeling & fishing & having a blast was a perfect way to view it. Definitely worth it!

I had a fantastic time with Kona Sea Adventures! I don't think I'd like to meet the person who wouldn't enjoy swimming with dolphins, whale watching and fishing. Kona Sea Adventures is the right company to do it with. Cyrus and his crew were extremely friendly. I'm not a strong swimmer and they were very patient with me. I felt... More
