Come join us aboard “Sea Smoke’s” spacious deck for an RMA exclusive sailing and snorkeling adventure.  You will be taken to a secluded snorkel site along the Kohala Coast.  Once there you will be given instruction on the gear, water safety, and marine life briefing.  Healthy reefs offer hundreds of species of fish, graceful sea turtles, and a wide variety of marine life to explore.  Snorkel vests, view boards, and noodles are available for young children or anyone in need of them.  Soak up the sun while we hoist up the sail and enjoy a relaxing leisurely sail back along our pristine coastline.  A deli style lunch buffet consisting of assorted sandwich meats, cheeses, condiments, vegetable crudités, cookies, and assorted beverages will be provided.

Attire:  Swimsuit and cover up, bring a hat sunscreen, sunglasses, and a towel.  No spray on sunscreen is allowed, as it can make the deck surfaces very slippery.
