Best Snorkel Trip EVER

For those of you interested in a snorkeling or SNUBA tour THIS one is NOT to be missed. Hubby and I did it today and it was PERFECT. We have done at least a dozen such tours in the US & The Bahamas and Mexico, and they have all been good. This one was super fantastic over the top GREAT. From the Outrigger, turn left and it is a one block WALK. They served breakfast, lunch and a snack and every bite was delicious and plant based. They served Kona coffee, local sodas and had lots of water. After snorkeling, there was a bar available for an extra charge. The environmental awareness and practices on board were extensive. They provided ample reef safe sunscreen. The boat is huge, stable and fully equipped. 2 bathrooms that put the airline ones to SHAME. The crew was super helpful and knowledgable. Upon approaching the snorkeling site, we were given a detailed history of some of Kona and The Big Island's history. After snorkeling, there was a naturalist with a brief movie and talk on the various fish and other marine life we saw. Lots of dolphins jumping and beautiful fish. While we were in the water, crew were on paddle boards making sure everyone was safe. It was 100% FABULOUS and you don't want to miss this. They have AM and PM sailings. They took us to a protected state preserve with really calm water. There was equipment for ALL swim levels. They had mini boogie boards with built in view finders so the tiniest child could view the underwater beauty - with a life vest on and a parent's hand on them. There were tubes that the staff carefully and with caring helped the grandparents and non-swimmers use to particiapte with their familes. There was a slide for the teenagers and uninhibited adults and a place to dive for the advernturous. The boat was spacious and clean and sturdy. I can NOT rave about this experience enough. Everyone seemed to have a great time and the ages appeared to be from 2-85.

Very Clean boat with textured non-slip floor, beautiful area to snorkel! Friendly staff who loved their jobs and were happy to help us in every way. They had staff out on the water on paddle boards making sure everyone was safe and enjoying their time. Breakfast was overnight oats ( cold oats) with fruit, seeds, and a little Milk over the top and had cinnamon in it served with Banana bread. My husband and I loved it! Our kids loved the banana bread. Lunch was BBq jackfruit which I had never had and it was delicious along with the little salad and potato salad. Everything was fresh and light. This is not a good tour so for all the people who complain about the food not being 5-star then I suggest go take a food tour or book a fancy meal. This is for snorkeling and Fairwind really delivered. We saw , yellow, black, aqua blue , orange and black fish along with an octopus and an eel. Beautiful sea urchins and some yellow and green coral. Loved it! At the end of our trip we saw Hawaiian spinner dolphins! I tired to include pics but the app wouldn’t allow me to download , technical issues.

Fantastic experience. Highly recommend! Staff was all great, boat was fun-kids had a blast jumping off dive platform and slides! Snorkeling was good, but not the best I’ve seen, but all the other elements made the expert well worth it!

The snorkeling…AMAZING! The scenery…STUNNING! The crew…FANTASTIC! If you’re questioning whether to do this, do it!!! Worth every penny! I can’t say enough about how wonderful the crew was! They have everything you need - even sunscreen. We had one in our group who wasn’t comfortable with the mask and they had a great/easy option for her to participate alongside everyone else. Clear, calm water with so much to see. My teenaged kids were thrilled. The food and drinks were delicious! If you’re not into an all veggie meal, you can bring something for yourself. Come prepared with cash for a crew tip - I don’t usually carry cash, but this crew works hard & I was glad to have enough to leave a generous tip!

Rude Captain
Vicky_C
, Jun 2022
The excursion was a blast and the crew was amazing except for the older man ( I believe he was the captain) who was very rude to my daughter and grandson. My grandson came back from snorkeling to eat so returned the snorkel gear to someone on the deck. When he was ready to go back, my daughter went to get another one for him. And the old man (not going to call him a gentleman because he was not) asked “where’s the other one, are you going to steal it?” My daughter did not say anything because she thought he was joking. And I thought we all had to rinse when we come back because that is what hey said in the beginning, so I asked where do we rinsed. He took the hose and sprayed my face and said this is not a hotel. Water is rare so we have to conserve. I paid a lot of money for 7 people to go in this trip because of the reviews. But for someone to treat me and my family like that is very bad business. His comments are not jokes. I am a professional and I work in the medical field and I don’t ever treat my customers the way he did. I will not recommend this trip because Of him. The other crew member were awesome except for him.

This was a very fun morning trip! The crew is very cohesive and they have a great system for getting you your snorkel equipment and your food fast. They also were there to help toss out extra inner tubes or whatever you needed while you’re in the water. The slides were fun! The water was refreshing and so blue. The food was vegetarian and delicious! The best part is that they didn’t overload this boat, so you don’t have to worry about not having your own space to sit with your family. We were able to leave all of our stuff in the same spot for the duration of the trip and nobody bothered it.

I saw a parrot fish nibbling on the reef! On the return the captain spotted some tiger sharks hunting and diverted slightly so we could see them. Glad I was watching from the boat!
