Big Island Salt Farm Tour Details
This tour came highly recommended to us by our newsletter readers, so we had to try and we’re so glad we did! We didn’t know how much there was to know about sea salt, but Kona Sea Salt isn’t any ordinary salt from the ocean, it comes from 2,200 feet under the surface where microplastics and other ocean pollutants haven’t reached. We’ll let the experts explain the rest when you go on your tour, but not only does this salt take a unique journey, but it’s also packed with minerals you don’t get from other salts.
Kona Sea Salt offers morning and sunset tours. Their morning tours run at 9 and 11 am daily, and their sunset tour runs Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at 6:15 pm. The oceanfront location is absolutely stunning, so you can’t go wrong with either option. Soak up some salty knowledge and have a salt tasting to start or end your day.
Kona Salt Farm also offers wellness experiences with its mineral-rich seawater, salts, and minerals. Learn more about their 1.5-hour Deep Ocean Water Mineral Spa Foot Soak or their 20-minute deep soak salt farm tour add-on.

About Kona Sea Salt
Kona Sea Salt is the only sea salt in the world made from pure, 900-year-old deep ocean water, rich in natural minerals and flavor. Most sea salts are created from surface waters that have significantly lower mineral content and can have higher amounts of microplastics and contaminants. Their salt water is drawn from 2,200 feet below the ocean’s surface off Hawai‘i Island, making it one of the highest-quality finishing salts in the world.
