"Fun aboard the Four Winds II"
April, 2018
We had an Excellent time on the Morning sail of the Four Winds II. The trip to Molokini was fantastic and we saw plenty of Whales along the way. we spent 2 hours at the Crater and had a great time swimming in the crystal clear water with endless fishes. We saw Dolphins, Moral Eels, Octopus, and thousands of fish. Even heard the Whale song under the Water. Food was good and there was plentiful alcohol after we finished Snorkelling and right up to the Harbour. Wine was not the best but there was plenty of it!

My husband and I just took a morning snorkel cruise to Molokini Crater on the Four Winds II. Staff was so pleasant and helpful. In addition to the snorkel gear, we were able to inexpensively rent a wet suit top since the water was chilly this early in the season. Small breakfast and BBQ lunch were very good. The captain made sure to slow or stop the boat for whale watching opportunities that arose, making this an exceptional trip. Above all, the staff were wonderful

"The Best"

I have taken four previous snorkeling cruises (2 on Kauai and 2 on the Big Island) which were very good. However, the staff on Four Winds II made this the best snorkeling cruise so far. The snorkeling itself at Molokini Crater didn't live up to my expectations because the fish habitat isn't as good as Captain Cook Bay but I thought that it would be cool to snorkel a partially submerged volcanic crater. The problem is that the crater gets too deep too fast to provide plentiful habitat for fish that snorkelers like to see. However, the numbers of trigger fish were amazing.

We had an excellent experience with Four Winds II yesterday - the snuba was awesome, the instructor was straight forward, fun and professional. The food was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Everyone had a great time - the glass bottom was a huge hit with our 3 year old as was sitting on the surfboard with the lifeguard 🤙🏽 - we will definitely book with Four Winds II again and recommend it to anyone with or without kids.

"The Best of a Rainy Day"

Reviewed February 26, 2019 NEW
It was a very dreary, rainy morning but that didn't stop the crew from show us great hospitality. Fruit and muffins were on the counter when we checked in and all was well. We saw many, many humpback whales and the captain was extremely respectful of these beautiful animals. Snorkeling was good, even without sunshine. Lunch and drinks were excellent. More whales on the way home and an added bonus of an underwater mic so we could listen to them. Captain and crew, well done.

Frequently Asked Questions about Molokini Snorkel Trip Aboard the Four Winds II

Is this a kid-friendly activity?
Yes. The Four Winds II is the best vessel for families and groups with young children and the elderly. The boat offers glass bottom viewing, which young children find fascinating.

What type of sunscreen should I bring?
We ask that guests do not bring spray-on sunscreen. Spray-on sunscreen gets picked up by the winds and causes slippery decks around the boat which result in a safety hazard for our guests. With this in mind, we recommend that guests bring a squeeze-type lotion with an SPF of 15 or higher.

Are strollers allowed onboard?
Yes. Strollers must be collapsible in order to be onboard.

Are life vests available onboard?
Absolutely. We carry child and adult sized life vests at all times.

Can I participate if pregnant?
Our vessels are very safe and stable and often accommodate pregnant guests. Many even go snorkeling too! Ultimately, when it comes to a pregnancy, it is always best to ask your doctor if they feel it is safe for you to be on a boat or go snorkeling. Each pregnancy is different and you and your doctor know what is best.

Is a lifeguard available during the snorkel portion of the trip?
We have what we like to refer to as our "Ocean Safety Crew". This is a dedicated crew member, who is on a large surfboard that keeps a watchful eye on all our folks in the water. They even provide assistance with your snorkel gear if you are having any problems.

While they serve the same function that a lifeguard does on shore, they are not lifeguard certified. However, all our crew members are highly competent in the water and are also Red Cross certified in both First Aid and CPR. So you, and your children, are in good hands, both in and out of the water.

How much will it cost me to park at the harbor?
The cost of parking is .50 cents per hour or $12 for a 24 hour period.

Do I need to bring cash or can I purchase items onboard with a credit card?
You can use a credit card onboard to purchase SNUBA. However purchases for wetsuit rentals and underwater camera rental, a video of your trip, or tee shirts require cash. It is also handy to have a little cash with you, should you want to leave a gratuity for the crew.

Are flotation devices available?
We provide (free of charge) Sea Boards (or View Boards as some call them), Boogie Boards, and Sea Belts (a specialized snorkeling floatation belt that makes it possible for even non-swimmers to enjoy snorkeling) for anyone who needs them.

Can I bring my own snorkel gear?
Sure! If you own your own mask, snorkel or set of fins we would definitely encourage you to bring what you feel comfortable snorkeling with. However, in the event you do not, we do provide you with snorkel, mask, and fins for free.

How long will I be allowed to snorkel for?
Guests enjoy over 2 hours of snorkel time at our destinations.

Are vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free food options available onboard?
We do have vegetarian burgers (Boca Burgers). However, we do not have any vegan menu items. If you do have special dietary requirements you are most welcome to bring your own food onboard the boat. If you do bring foods, please bring them in a small cooler bag as our galley space is limited and we can not refrigerate anything for you.

With regards to a gluten-free menu, our Morning Snorkel Trip includes a Gluten-Free selection of BBQ pulled-pork and marinated chicken breasts for lunch. We also have lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions that can accompany the BBQ pulled-pork and chicken breast. While we don't have Gluten-Free buns, you are welcome to use your own or use some lettuce leaves. For breakfast, we offer tropical fruit and cream cheese. You are more than welcome to bring your own Gluten-Free muffin or pastry. The Afternoon Snorkel Trip offers Gluten-Free all-beef hamburger patties (with no filler) and Gluten-Free marinated chicken breasts with all the above mentioned trimmings.

Can I buy aspirin or Dramamine onboard?
No, due to health laws and the risks involved with dispensing any types of medications, we can not provide these items to you. If you require any medication or think you may need some, please bring it with you.

What should I bring onboard?
We recommend that guests bring a towel, extra cash, sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera in addition to appropriate beach and swim attire.

Are wheelchairs allowed onboard?
Yes! The Four Winds II can accommodate wheelchairs on a daily basis. Please keep in mind that whomever requires the wheelchair will initially need carried up a couple of stairs or walk up, on their own, a couple of stairs to get onboard. Our crew will assist you in accomplishing this. Once onboard the wheelchair can be used.
