Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Head to Honokohau Harbor in the morning and check in at the Hawaii Nautical dock. Climb aboard this luxurious cruising vessel, complete with private changing areas, fresh-water showers, and in-cabin restrooms, as you set off to experience the magic of coastal area near Kona.

Depending on the day’s conditions and guest request, your vessel will head for one of several top-notch snorkeling spots. You might get to enjoy the swim-throughs, caves, and arches of Pawai Bay, or head to Makalawena, a secluded area that’s typically only reachable by boat or rugged off-road vehicle. Each guest will have access to an inflatable snorkel vest, gear, and even prescription masks to maximize the fun.

When you’ve had your fill of snorkeling step back on board your yacht to enjoy an included lunch. Choose between a picnic lunch and special Japanese “Bento-style” meal options, washing it down with unlimited refreshments. Make sure to keep your eyes on the water as you eat, as you may be able to observe marine life like turtles, dolphins, and sometimes even whales, swimming nearby. At the end of your fabulous day at sea you’ll return back to the harbor where you started the trip.

Certified Dolphin Smart Supplier

Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a thrilling experience. However, we can disturb dolphins’ natural behaviors, such as migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, and sheltering by approaching wild dolphins too closely in vessels; moving vessels too quickly, or making too much noise. The Dolphin SMART program is a voluntary education program that encourages responsible advertising and viewing of wild dolphins; thereby, minimizing the risk of disrupting their natural behaviors. You are a steward for wild dolphin conservation by being a Proud Supporter of Dolphin SMART!

Could not ask for a better experience!

Perfect day! Brooke and Liz cannot be beat as seawomen. They are seasoned sailors and managed the catamaran beautifully. We went to a quiet cove with a plethora of fish. We had plenty of time to soak up the sun and coincidentally saw an active pod of dolphins too! An experience not to be missed. Well worth the money. I highly, highly, highly recommend this very professional company and their employees, who all provide first rate service!

From the moment we left the harbor we came across a group of resting dolphins then on to snorkeling the shoreline exploring an underwater cave. The whole trip was incredible. Our Captain Kirk and Liz were amazing. Sadly not enough breeze to actually sail but the No Wiki is a beautiful boat. We will definitely go again

One of the nicest days we’ve spent on vacation. The boat is phenomenal, the trip perfect - dolphins, snorkeling, sailing, everything exceeded our expectations. The highlight of the excursion was Capt. John and 1st Mate Sean. They were perfect hosts, friendly, gracious and made the trip exceptional!

Beautiful boat, excellent snorkeling, and lovely sail, delicious lunch and all the drinks one wanted, plus outstanding service from Captain John and First Mate Shawn. Only four guests aboard. Six is the maximum. Truly luxurious. My wife and I highly recommend this tour, especially if you want to go first class. Nothing else like it on the Big Island.

Amazing day on the NO WIKI! Captain Jon and crew were fantastic finding dolphins, sun and fish all under sail! Boat is in fantastic condition, bar and beverages top notch and the hot chocolate chip cookies were over the top. We will make NO WIKI and Captain Jon a regular part of our annual visit!

Our family was lucky enough to have booked this incredible trip. The crew were so kind, welcoming, careful and attentive, we could not have been happier! I almost didn't book this, for lack of the volume of reviews that other trips had, and that would have been a mistake. It was amazing, the best!
