Fun and wondering crew. Great breakfast and lunch. We did this tour for the scuba, which is my fault for not realizing it was Snuba, not Scuba, so different experience but still great!. Family friendly 100%

We had so much fun with this Tour. The Crew was very attentive to the guests making sure we all comfortable and safe during our Snorkeling. The Breakfast, Lunch and Snack were so delicious. We cannot ask for more, BEST TOUR! Next time we go back to Kona, we will use this company again.
Awesome snorkeling
KAREN_B, May 2023
The crew on the Fair Winds were superior to any other snorkeling tour we have been on. My husband was able to see because they have prescription goggles to wear. The snorkeling was wonderful and very easy to get on and off the boat. Food was great too! Overall truly an amazing experience.
Lovely experience!
Mary_W, May 2023
This was a relaxing low-stress tour, as the crew was very organized and helpful. Check-in was a breeze. Before boarding we were provided our snorkel and mask, and pmineral sun screen. Throughout the whole trip, the crew was friendly, helpful and caring. As novice snorkelers, the instructions given just prior to swimming was excellent. Seeing the coast during the ride was beautiful. I highly recommend this tour.
Rosa_M, May 2023
We are snorkelers and we try to go to a snorkeling spot on every trip we go. But we are very skeptical of what others call great spot. Captain Cook Monument area did not disappoint. The guides were knowledgeable and cool. The service was great and the boat in great condition. The time allotted for snorkeling was perfect! It was money and time well spent. We highly recommend it.
Awesome tour
Katie_H, May 2023
Awesome tour. The crews were great! They took good care of everyone on board. Lunch was plant-based but good. Breakfast was nice but too little. Overall, we had a great time, have got to see a lot of fish, too.
Best time

Fun trip for the family!

Fun snorkel trip - but it was a bit crowded at the site. The crew was friendly and helpful. The captain was awesome! I was pleasantly surprised by the vegan meals. The boat had everything needed for a fun time - slides, high dive, snorkel gear, tubes for floating - and lots and lots of sunscreen
Best snorkeling trip … best part of my vacation
Elisa_K, Apr 2023
I think the best part of this trip was the crew and the staff. Everyone went above and beyond to ensure that every guest had the most memorable trip. The scenery was just beautiful and the snorkeling was fun and I saw incredible fish.
Tour of a lifetime
Susan_C, Apr 2023
What an amazing experience! If you don’t snorkel use the view boxes. This tour was top shelf in every way! The staff were very experienced, knowledgeable, and helpful in every way. The food was very tasty especially the cookies. This is the tour of a lifetime!
Must do trip!!
Peter_B, Apr 2023
This is a must if on the big island. Staff is great and everything you need is provided (don’t forget to bring a towel.) Food was great and all plant based. Morning coffee was a life saver too. Water is amazing. Snorkeling is fantastic. You can jump off the boat and water slide into the water. Boat was sold out but didn’t feel too crowded. I paid extra for Snuba and thoroughly enjoyed it. Give yourself enough time to park up the road a bit, it’s the last building on the road for checking in. Enjoy!!!
A Day with Fourwinds & Captain Cooks' bay
Flora_F, Mar 2023
Everything was very good; efficient check-in, professional crew, great stories about the land & heritage, snorkel gear with distance adjustment, fishes (way better than Costa Rica), the slides and seeing a large family of goats trek it up the rocky hill. The only thing i would recommend looking at is the plant based food. 2 things; a) the chick pea recipe needed more flavor and b) the ability to have 2 cookies or purchase more. The cookies were very delicious but small. Overall, I would rate this a 4.4.
Great time!
Stephanie_M, Mar 2023
Wonderful experience for the entire family. Food served was delicious. Guides and life guards were helpful and courteous.
Don’t miss it!
Heather_F, Mar 2023

Great crew! Very family...
Jennifer_C, Mar 2023
Great crew! Very family friendly. We saw lots of dolphins too. It was a little chilly/windy, but we made the best of it.
Katherine_L, Mar 2023
Check in procedures is efficient. Stable big boat, friendly crews, food, ample time, floatation aids provided. Would recommend
Great morning snorkel in February
Linda_C, Mar 2023
Clear water, lots of fish, nice staff. As a vegetarian, I enjoyed having food that I could eat. The bbq jackfruit sammie was tasty!
Great trip for a large family.
Art_D, Feb 2023
The crew, boat, and snorkeling made this trip awesome. We had a group of 10 and had a wonderful experience. Highly recommend this excursion.
Great time
AnnieKessler, Feb 2023
It was a beautiful day, with a very great staff. The food, water slide and snorkeling provided many activities for all ages! The spot that we went for snorkeling did have a lot of other tourists, but not so much that you couldn't snorkel, just not a remote destination or anything if that's what you're looking for. Tons of beautiful fish, though!!!
Amazing Experience!!!
John_G, Feb 2023
Wonderful experience. Wife's first time snorkeling and she enjoyed it , said it was the best experience she has had so far on the BIg Island. Crew was amazing and breakfast and lunch was very satisfying. We will definitely do this again when we return to Hawai!!!! Well worth the price !!
