Ocean Encounters

Encounter Dolphins, Manta Rays and More

Take advantage of all the fun the Pacific Ocean has waiting for you on an Ocean Encounters expedition! With years of experience boating, snorkeling, fishing and seeking marine creatures in the Kona region, we are proud to offer the best marine wildlife encounters in the area.

Our experienced guides and crew love these animals so intently that they know most of what there is to know about them and are excited to share that knowledge with you.

Whether you are looking to witness whales, encounter dolphins and manta rays, meet new friends or just get away from it all, Ocean Encounters can help. So shed the stress and worry of everyday life and enjoy a fantastic time. Contact Ocean Encounters today!
