Capt. Chuck was a great guide for our “au natural” snorkeling trip on the Big Island. He was very informative, comfortable to be with, and had a safe and modern boat (w/good snorkeling gear).
Captain Chuck (SwimFree) is accepting of guests ... whether you only want to go topless or full nude. He even helps you in taking personalized photos!
Such a great trip, I’m already planning a re-visit.

Aloha! I was invited to #swimfreehawaii by my friend Nova, living on Big Island, Hawaii. She described it as a (clothing optional) snorkeling tour every Wednesday or Sunday morning.
I personally have a very pale booty that rarely sees the sunshine and I am also not well accustomed to swimming nude in a group.
Though isn't swimming in the clear blue ocean and sunbathing best felt nude?
This is a fun group of people that meets at South Kona Harbor at 8 a.m., meets and greets, plays music while driving out of the bay (very beutiful mornings), docks the boat a little off the coast where there are colorful coral reefs near by, tons of fascinating fish and sea life, as well as more music and good vibes.
You'll snorkel for a while, (far off and alone if you like or with a group, whatever you prefer) sunbathe, take pictures (two underwater cameras are available for your use), and after a few hours of paradise you're back at the harbor going about your day.
I highly recommend everyone try out a #clothingoptional #swimfreehawaii trip.
It's a wonderful way to experience the ocean and in the process meet good people.
I recall one woman on our trip who wore what seemed to be a wedding dress while swimming. The way it danced and flowed beneath the water was very artsy and memorable.
