A shorter afternoon version of our popular morning cruise – departing from Keauhou Bay, the birthplace of Hawaii’s longest reigning Monarch, King Kamehameha III.

Guests will experience a historical journey from the birthplace of a Hawaiian King to the place of death of the great Circumnavigator Captain James Cook at Kealakekua Bay. In between they will hear stories and view several historical sites such as the last battle stand at Kuamo’o Battlefield and view the Royal Holua Slide, the largest and best preserved in the state, and a historical landmark.

Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this award winning snorkel cruise to historic Kealakekua Bay, site of Captain Cook Monument. This 3-1/2 hour cruise departs from Keauhou Bay and includes 1-1/2 hours of snorkeling at pristine Kealakekua Bay, snorkel gear, instruction, floatation gear, high dive and two 15’ water slides.

Assorted snacks are served and no-host cash bar is open during the last hour of the cruise.

Great Snorkeling — Great Value!
The Afternoon Kealakekua Snorkel Cruise is one of the best kept secrets around, just ask a local!  Guests are basically getting the popular morning cruise without the meals (breakfast & lunch). The overall cruise duration is therefore shortened a bit, but with plenty of time to have fun snorkeling. Plus, afternoons in Kealakekua Bay are generally absent of other tour boat operators – providing for a truly serene experience.  And, Toddlers 3 & under go free!

The afternoon snorkel cruise to Kealakekua Bay on the Fair Wind II departs Keauhou Bay at 2:00 PM and returns at 5:30 PM. Check-in at 1:30 PM. Bring towels, reef-safe sunscreen, sun hat, etc. (storage boxes available on catamaran).

*NOTE: Our vessels are reef safe zones, and we do not (allow/ condone) the use of non reef-safe sunscreens.  Complimentary environmentally-friendly “reef-safe” sunscreen is provided for our guests (available at check-in and aboard all vessels).

Kealakekua Bay

With its natural wind protection, remote location and designations as an underwater state park, marine sanctuary and site of the Captain Cook Monument, Kealakekua Bay is earning a reputation as the best snorkeling destination in Hawaii.

According to Hawaii – The Big Island Revealed, The Ultimate Guidebook, “Snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay near the monument is perhaps the best you will find anywhere in the state.”
