Trip hosted by Taylor Cunningham in partnership with See Through Sea.

I have been lucky enough to spend countless hours on the water in Kona and I am so excited to share some of the most special experiences I've ever had with you. Diving in this special pocket of ocean is sure to be unforgettable.

Exploring Offshore

The waters off of Kona on the Big Island can reveal all kinds of amazing wildlife. We are open to encountering anything we are able to find.

The tropical waters of Hawaii are home to a huge variety of wildlife. Because of the unique topography of the seafloor on the Kona coast there is an even greater opportunity to encounter the rarest of Hawaiian marine life when compared to other areas around the islands.

There have been over 25 different species of dolphin and whale documented in Hawaiian waters. The deep drop off on the Western coast of the Big Island offers a unique opportunity to view more pelagic species of  cetceans that can be more difficult to view on other islands.

There are over 40 species of sharks that can be seen in Hawaiian waters. You never know what we might encounter while exploring offshore. From more coastal species to more pelagic ones, really anything is a possibility.
