It's been a gorgeous day, and we're under a high surf advisory - the waves have gotten bigger since I took these photos a few hours ago.

We had a great time. We saw Humpback Whales on the way out and back. There were also saw about 20 Spinner Dolphins near the dive site at Captain Cook Monument. In the water we saw lots of varieties of fish in clear water. The staff was very friendly and informative.

I am so glad I took our hosts recommendation on this Cruise. It ended up having everything I wanted and expected our of a short Hawaiian Cruise. Highlights included some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii (believe me cause I snorkeled all over that island), grilled food, a boat designed to enjoying the water (high dives, slides, and easy access for snorkelers), and the option to try snuba. The crew was great and even tried our hand at deep sea fishing as we went to our snorkel spot. There are so many options in Hawaii but if you truly love the water and dont want cold cuts for food, This is the Cruise for you.

Couldn't have been more pleased with our snorkeling trip with Fair Wind. A+ crew led by young at heart and knowledgeable captain. First I thought we could hike to Captain Cook Bay on our own, but then getting there and back on the catamaran was just as fun. Great jumps and slides from the boat too and excitement catching a tuna on the way. Worth the money!

Absolutely ridiculous, wasted two days of my vacation including the last day, driving 1.5 hours to find out that the cruise was canceled, when they moved us to the second day, same thing happened. While discussing the technical problems, saw the cruise docking.. Then found out we're not on the manifest! Just for clarification, on the second day before leaving the hotel, we called and confirmed that the cruise was a go!

We took the morning Snorkel Cruise out to Captain Cook Monument. The staff are absolutely amazing!!! We were an age group that ranged from 2 to 42, but our friends have taken their 90 year old grandma. The boat is easily accessible, staff are very accommodating & it's perfect for a novice snorkeler. My toddler loved the viewing boogie board. My 5 year old loved snorkeling & going down the slide...over & over & over... They provide food, gear & drinks. Snuba is also offered on this tour. We loved our cruise & highly recommend this tour to people of all ages!!! Look no further, the Fair Wind is amazing! *If you are an experienced snorkeler & have your own gear, you may want to bring it along. The gear was nice, but I prefer using my own.

This was only my second every snorkel adventure, first with Fair Wind Cruises. This was a better experience than my first. The crew was extremely helpful, especially with those of us with little experience. I was traveling with someone who was using a cane. He had trouble moving fast enough to get on/off the boat, but the crew was extremely professional, competent and polite in assisting him. They also allowed him to board first, which made him more comfortable with the boat ride. I would definitely recommend this company to others for snorkeling or other ocean adventures.

Have been going on Fairwinds for decades now ... often go three or four times each annual trip to Hawaii .... Love the boat and the crew, they really ARE all about Aloha .. the location is perfect too .. and on a personal note ... the food is most excellent and you will truly have a day you will NEVER forget. I am getting married on Big Island next March and for sure we intend to make Fairwinds one of the highlights for the whole group.

I had never been snorkeling before, so I was a bit apprehensive. This was an amazing experience and the crew and staff was awesome.
