Captain Cook Reef Snorkel (video)

Captain Zodiac on The Big Island of Hawaii is not your usual snorkeling adventure host. From the moment you enter the office, the pirate theme will have your group saying “Aye, this be the place!” Junior pirate certificates arrrrr available for the young swabs in yer crew. So tell Jennifer that you would like to book without delay.

Ye may address the captain as Captain Bob, or Captain Ron if ye are a fan of 80’s movies, as we happen ta be. First Mate Sierra made sure that everything was ship-shape and that no land lubbers were left behind.

We saw several dolphins whilst aboard our black raft and Captain Ron positioned us for excellent photo opps of caves, lava tubes, blowholes and the famous cliff formation, Pele, the goddess of fire, according to Hawaiian mythology, as featured in Moana.

Sierra, a Hawaiian mythology aficionado, told us the fateful tale of Captain Cook, the British sailor who arrived during a sacred season, and was mistaken for a god. He gave away too many nails from his vessel as presents to the Hawaiians, and his ship was compromised is the rough seas. When he returned with an ill crew and broken mast, the Hawaiians surmised that he was not a diety, and the welcome was less cordial. He met his end at the reef that bears his name—the very reef where we enjoyed a day of snorkeling with a friendly turtle and countless fish.

The adventure allows for over two hours in the water, and features fresh watermelon, fruit, turkey sandwiches, beverages and a lifetime of tall tales.

Stay in touch with NY See You Later!

Hi, we’re Dan and Emille. We met at church in NYC in 2010 and in 2011 we were married in Central Park on the bow bridge. In the last 6 years of marriage we stopped paying NYC rent, and bought a place on the edge of Hoboken, NJ, with spectacular views of the NYC skyline, which has been really fulfilling for photography enthusiasts. We have been talking about having kids for the last 6 years, but the New York lifestyle would make it difficult as our families are in Florida and Brazil. So we sold our place and furniture, left some great jobs, and friends and decided to have travel the world before we have kids. We’re cultured, but not fancy. We've been to 21 countries, and would love to visit all of them. We try to experience things like the locals as much as possible.
