Fair Wind Cruises
Located in Keauhou-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, Fair Wind Cruises has been offering snorkel excursions since 1971. We offer two vessels with two very unique snorkel experiences.
Our snorkel destination on Fair Wind II, historic Kealakekua Bay, is without question one of the most relaxing areas for snorkeling - maintaining clear visibility and very calm waters throughout the day. Kealakekua Bay was designated a marine life sanctuary in 1971. Since that time, Fair Wind continues to work with the state as stewards of the area to help educate guests on protecting this marine environment. As a result, you will see a variety of living corals and fascinating fish species. In addition, this area is rich in Hawaiian history and includes the site of the historic Captain Cook Monument. The land the monument sits on actually belongs to England and is the only place you can view British soil while visiting Hawaii!
Our newest vessel, Hula Kai, has been designed and built to accommodate guests who seek the very best in luxury, comfort, and technology. Our Hula Kai cruise offers the advanced snorkeler a way to explore some of Kona's most unique and less traveled snorkel destinations along the spectacular Kona Coast shoreline.
We have taken great consideration in making our cruises available to all skill levels and ages! Our destinations, highly trained crew, and years of experience offer a safe and memorable cruise. We have floatation devices, view boxes, and snorkel instruction available for those needing additional assistance. Plus, our vessels were specifically designed with two custom staircases to make entry and exit of the water safe and easy.
