This is for the athletic type of person. Crew bored. Broke loose a bit after we as a group started asking questions and they realized we for the most part had all snorkeled before ....

Great Snorkeling! We took the Fair Winds tour to the bay and were quite pleased. Here is a link to an underwater video we took that gives you a good idea of what to expect: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1VryBhdg5A
The boat was timely, had a very friendly crew and we had plenty of time to snorkel in the bay. We snorkeled about six different beaches around the Big Island and this was by far the best. Highly recommended.
Great day out. Snorkeling was awesome.
Capt. Ken and 1st Mate Buddha were fabulous! We have been on other snorkling trips, but nothing compares to the Kealakekua Bay experience. We saw dolphins, goats and seabirds along the way, then TONS of beautiful coral and fish in the bay. It was a nice mix of fun and education by the crew and a fantastic day overall. Beat the Crowd sailing was definitely a plus as the big catamarans left -- along with their crowds. Thanks! See you again soon....
Excellent!Appreciated the crew taking us close to the Captain Cook's Monument before anchoring for swimming and snorkling. Loved the snorkling in calm waters and had fun jumping off the boat and swimming in the clear water. Crew were friendly and helpful. We were also given the opportunity for "snuba" I did not take it but I saw that the group who did had a great time - it was extra. Would recommend this for all ages..
We had a great time. The zodiac was very comfortable. We saw whales and dolphin which was very exciting. The snorkeling at Captain Cook's monument was just outstanding. Must have seen over 20 different types of fish and beautiful coral. Our guides were great (Colin and Maria). Definitely recommend this one.
this is my second trip with Zodiac, can't wait for the next time.
The tour guides were amazing, I really felt like I got the best possible experience because of them.
Tour was a fun, informative adventure with plenty of time to snorkel and play with the critters. We saw dolphins, turtles and a score of various fish in a protected, beautiful cove. Captain Jack and Maria were wonderful hosts who spent a great deal of time explaining not only the creatures we saw, but the local history and landmarks as well. It was well worth the $.
The captains took great care of us and our kids. We had a blast!

Doing what: Snorkel, Kayak and Dolphin Experience in the Big Island’s Kealakekua Bay
What a great way to spend a morning on the Big Island! The kayaking was done at a good pace and we took frequent breaks to listen to our guide "talk story" and tell the group some Hawaiian history. John, our tour guide, was super nice, informative and knowledgeable. The snorkeling was amazing. There were so many different types of fish and sea life. On the kayak journey back, spinner dolphins were all around us! It was such a great experience.
Mitch was our guide and made this trip a great pleasure and very fun. We had snorkeled in this same bay the day before, but all the views of the island, the spinner dolphins, the rapid ride, made this wonderful -- go on this trip!!
great great day fun ride wonderful experience for the entire family
