What You Can Expect

Kealakekua Bay Deluxe Snorkel Cruise

Kealakekua Bay Deluxe Snorkel Cruise

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.

Went in early January and the weather was a beautiful Hawaiian winter's day. As we entered the bay, spinner dolphins were displaying by jumping out of the water and, of course, spinning! The water was clear and gentle and the fish life diverse. The crew of the Fairwinds were very helpful and grill a good lunch!. We were a group of 8 adults who came for the snorkeling but they had slides and diving platforms for the swimmers and kids as well. Plenty of flotation devices provided if you just wanted to hang out. If the weather and water were a few degrees warmer, it would have been perfect, but that's not the fault of Fairwinds. Next time I'll come go in the Spring!

Awesome day out. We all had the best time ever. We were able to see lots of fish and have a good look around. The staff were very helpful and lots of fun. The lunch was basic but good. Would have been nice to have lettuce with the hamburger but not a biggy. The boat trip was good and the fruit was nice on the way there.
We all had a good time and would definitely recommend doing this tour. Lots of fun and very relaxing.
