Snorkel Day is an adaptive event for people living with disabilities. Here the impossible becomes possible! We invite people of all ages, with any special need or disability to join us for this free community event.

Snorkel Day is more than just an ordinary beach day; it's a meeting place where we share nature, adventure and freedom together as friends. We create an inclusive atmosphere where everyone is treated equally, and a place for families and caregivers to rest.

We have three Snorkel Day Locations on the Big Island of Hawaii:

  • Hilo at Richardson’s Ocean Park

  • Kawaihae at Spencer's Beach Park

  • Kona at Kahalu’u Beach.

Visit our Snorkel Day Calendar Tab for more information on specific dates. 



You can get involved at Snorkel Day through two ways! Either as a Participant or as a Volunteer.

Each event can host up to 25 people with disabilities, so hurry and register below! You don’t want to miss this! If you are a caregiver of a special needs person(s), we highly encourage you to come join in the fun!

Snorkel Day begins at 10 am and ends at 2 pm, with a potluck lunch at noon. Activities include, snorkeling, swimming, floating, board games, playing in the sand, or talking story! We have a variety snorkel equipment available for you to use or you may bring your own!
