Aboard the Fair Wind II catamaran, sail across the open ocean and enjoy the panoramic views of the remote Kona Coast and the vast scenery atop Fair Wind’s upper sun deck. Quite often, witness a show of spinning dolphins, flying fish and breaching whales as they add to the water magic.
In a blink of an eye, the Marine Sanctuary of Kealakekua Bay pops into view and the fun picks up. The crystal clear water beckons everyone to grab a flotation device, don snorkel, mask and fins and dive right in! View Kealakekua Bay Marine Life Photo Gallery.
Even the most anxious of swimmers cannot resist the lure of the abundant marine life playing among the outcroppings of coral and lava rock reefs. The waters are so pristine often with visibility up to 100 feet that the view is incredible even from the top deck!
To add to the fun, the young and young at heart will want to experience the thrill of Fair Wind’s 15-foot water slide and high dive jump. With so much to do, it’s easy to forget that the Fair Wind serves a barbecue lunch and fresh fruit juices.
Fair Wind is fully equipped for families with infants or toddlers. A collapsible playpen secures little ones so that the “bigger kids” can enjoy a meal and take turns snorkeling.
Fair Wind also has flotation devices with viewfinders and separate view finder boxes for toddlers to watch the fun below without getting faces wet.
