Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This Kona snorkeling cruise leaves from Keauhou on the southern edge of town, which makes for a short and comfortable cruise to Kealakekua Bay. Start the tour with a steaming cup of Kona grown coffee, which is sourced directly from the Dant family farm and served with muffins and fruit. 

When you arrive in sheltered Kealakekua Bay, the next 2.5 hours are reserved for swimming, snorkeling and splashing with marine life. Take a turn on the 15-foot (4.5-meter) waterslide or the high jump platform from the ship, or follow schools of colorful fish as they flit and dart about the reef. 

While you’re enjoying the clear waters or lounging out on the deck, the captain will be firing up the barbecue grill for a lunch of burgers at sea. There are also garden burgers and vegetarian options for your meal with an ocean view, as well as a wide selection of beverages available for purchase on board.

Fantastic day on the water!!

What a great day aboard the Four Winds! This excursion is very organized. We were aboard the boat on time, and our crew was THE BEST. We had a nice breakfast on the way out to the snorkel site. Before getting there the captain and crew had us fitted in our snorkel gear and we were briefed about the snorkel site. Once we were there we were able to get right into the water. The fish were absolutely gorgeous! You were allowed on and off the boat as much as you wanted. Lunch was delicious, and we were allowed back in the water after eating. On the way back to the dock, we were given a presentation on the fish we saw. This had to be one of the best snorkel trips we’ve ever been on. I highly recommend this trip!!
Great Day

We had a great time snorkeling with Fair Wind. Crew was very attentive, food served delicious and the location so beautiful! Saw so many fish it was like swimming in an aquarium. We are already play to visit next year! The
Super Fun Day
, May 2021
Every staff member, from check-in to crew member, was so friendly, engaging, and just out to make sure everyone was having a great and safe time. The boat was so fun, the views were amazing, the crew was super informative, and the food was YUM (we aren’t vegan, so it was cool to branch out and try foods we wouldn’t normally eat) The outing was worth every penny & we had an amazing day. (They also make fabulous margs and mai tais on the ride back)
Great trip!

Great for all ages! My teenagers and pre-teen loved the SNUBA and there were families with small children that were able to use floats, etc.
First timer!

Crew was great. First time snorkeling and it was very doable. Gorgeous waters, color and lots of sea life.

Awesome trip

Great snorkeling trip. Staff was excellent. Can’t wait to go again when we come back to the Big Island. Plant based meal was good.
Great Tour

fantastic tour! boat was larg le and clean, crew were incredibly friendly and helpful. The snorkeling spot was beautiful and all the equipment was in good shape and plenty of it. Only complaint if any was that the ‘advertised’ lunch menu was not at all the menu which left our picky eaters with nothing to eat. still an amazing trip
Top notch experience.
