Big Island Snorkling Tours Blog

Love Big Island on the basics of the Big Island.  Join us for a wonderful snorkel or manta ray experience on the west coast of the beautiful Big Island.

The Big Island is officially known as the island of Hawaiʻi and received this nickname for a good reason: it is the largest island of the United States with a total surface of 4,029 square miles (10,433 square kilometers)! Its surface area is also greater than that of all other Hawaiian island combined.

The 200,381 inhabitants of the Big Island (which is only 14% of the total population of the state of Hawaiʻi, 2017 census) mostly live in and around the two large population centers in the island: Hilo (the capital) on the east coast, and Kona on the west coast.

The Big Island is twice the size of Delaware and almost four times as large as Rhode Island.  Alaska (142x), Texas (65x), and California (39x) are still quite a bit larger than the Big Island.

Despite these impressive figures the state of Hawaiʻi actually is pretty small: there are only 3 states (Connecticut, Delaware, and Rhode Island ) with less land surface than the aloha state. Yet, our “small” Big Island is home to 8 / 13 of the climate zones in the world, and there are many fun, exciting and accessible activities possible for you to explore it.
