I recently took my 3rd snorkel trip with Fair Wind. All 3 trips have been perfect! This year we had a great crew, delicious food and excellent snorkeling. Last year we saw dolphins and whales while cruising to snorkel areas, but alas, not this year....More
Would definitely recommend this morning snorkel cruise to anyone who enjoys snorkeling and wants to visit some out of the way places. We went to two different locations where there were no other boats, which was a big plus. These locations are only accessible by...More
This our 4th time joining the Fair Winds group for a day snorkeling at the Captain Cook memorial on the Big Island, Hawaii, and we were not disappointed. This company consistently provides an excellent experience from the light but plentiful breakfast served upon boarding to...More

All in all a good, high quality company and trip. Crew was friendly and attentive. Snorkeling gear provided by the company was ok, although not as good as equipment we rented for the week from a local shop. Breakfast was fine, and the bbq lunch...More

Professional from making the reservations to the experience itself. Had a fabulous time for the second time with these guys. Great gear too. They went out of their way to ensure even the most nervous traveler comfortable.
This was our family favorite for the whole vacation. The boat was deluxe and big enough that sea-sickness wasn't a problem. The crew was very nice. The food was very good for a boat.
We especially enjoyed our time with Jay for the SNUBA. She...More

Great question! The Manta Departure times change throughout the year depending on what time the sun sets. Right now, in July, the cruise departs at 6:30 pm but you wouldn't be entering the water until about 7:00 (after the Manta education and safety briefings). By then, it gets dark pretty quickly.
