About Adventure X Boat Tours
"With our safe, upgraded, and luxury adventure boat we specialize in respectful swim with dolphin tours, whale watches, snorkel adventures, manta ray night snorkel tours, and private charters. We operate in a remote area on the west side of the Big Island, along the Kohala coast, away from the crowds and craziness of Kona. We promote respectful encounters of our ocean animals, and sustainable practices as we pride ourselves as an eco-friendly business. From our many reviews online, we have found that our guests love our excellent customer service, as everyone who comes on board is ohana, we truly care, and will do everything we can to make sure you have a fabulous time. We cater delicious food from Under the Bodhi Tree, and we even have a bathroom on board.

It was so fantastic! Captain Casey and the girls were all so great, the boat, the music and most of all the snorkelling with the Mantas was unbelievably incredible. Just wish I could have got a video or pictures!

Hi there, not that I’m aware of. Adventure X Rafting only does snorkel trips and dolphin swims. There is a company Kohala Divers which is good up north. Otherwise down in Kona Big Island Divers or Jack’s Diving Locker.
