Details
For a truly unique experience, join us aboard Fair Wind’s sister vessel, Hula Kai. This powerful 55’ catamaran is full of first-class comforts like individual theater style seating and scrumptious food. Ideal for snorkeling & ocean enthusiasts, the Hula Kai ventures off the beaten path – speeding you to exotic locations along the South Kona coast, including night manta ray adventures. The Hula Kai Deluxe Kona Coast Cruise Discover remote locations as unique as the vessel that gets you there. Hula Kai is an exciting, yet truly relaxing experience! This 5-hour cruise departs daily from Keauhou Bay, the birthplace of Hawai’i’s longest reigning Monarch, King Kamehameha III. During the cruise, experience a scenic Hawaiian cultural journey with fascinating historical stories while viewing significant sites including the place of death of the great Circumnavigator Captain James Cook at Kealakekua Bay, the last battle stand at Kuamo’o Battlefield and the Royal Holua Slide, the largest and best preserved in the state, and a historical landmark. The Deluxe Kona Coast Cruise includes two unique snorkel destinations, standup paddleboards, snorkel gear, reef safe sunscreen and instruction. Guests are served breakfast of fresh hot egg frittatas, croissants, yogurt & granola, tropical island fruit, 100% Kona Coffee grown on our estate farm, herbal tea, and juice. Our hearty barbecue lunch includes Hawaii raised grass-fed beef burgers, teriyaki chicken tenders, vegetarian garden burgers, pasta salad, and tossed salad with homemade salad dressings (vegan or vegetarian options available upon request). Additional options available for purchase are SNUBA, Sea Rocket tours, and a cash bar. Our Deluxe South Kona Cruise features two unique snorkel locations along the stunning South Kona Coast, with Turtle Rock often selected as one of the sites. Encounters with Pyramid Butterfly fish and green sea turtles are common in this area. Several other incredible snorkel locations are utilized at the Captain’s discretion based on daily water conditions. These areas include the Red Hill region renowned for its various reefs, rock formations, and abundant marine life – and also Pali Kaholo which is located approximately 10-miles South of Kealakekua Bay (which is occasionally utilized as well). The Hula Kai Deluxe Kona Coast Cruise departs from Keauhou Bay at 9:30 am, returning at 2:30 pm. Check-in at 9:05 am. Bring towels, sun hat, etc. *Minimum age limit for this cruise is 7-years old. This cruise is for experienced snorkelers only. The Evening Manta Ray Snorkel Adventure The Travel Channel calls snorkeling with Manta Rays “One of the top-ten things to do in your lifetime!” Join us for one of the most exhilarating experiences in Hawaii, Kona’s First-Class Manta Adventure! Mantas are very gentle – no teeth, stingers or barbs. They are simply big and beautiful with wingspans that can exceed 15-feet in width! These “Gentle Giants” visit us nightly to feed on the plankton that is attracted by Hula Kai’s bright lighting. Enjoy a short and comfortable five-minute boat ride to Manta Village – located near the Sheraton Keauhou. Once at the site, just after sunset, our professional guides will assist you into the water for an experience of a lifetime! You will witness the mantas up close as they grace the waters and feed on plankton. The Night Manta Snorkel includes 1 hour of snorkel time, wet suits, snorkel gear, warm bread rolls, hot vegan soup, hot drinks and a Manta Ray education class. The departure times for this cruise change with the sunset. *Minimum age limit for this cruise is 7-years old. The Manta Ray Snorkeling Adventure is for EXPERIENCED SNORKELERS ONLY. Participants must be able to swim, must be comfortable in the ocean, and must have prior snorkeling experience.
