“Great experience...”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

two of our family were not swimmer, yet the really enjoyed floating with the viewer and seeing for the first time ever what life is like under the sea. The entrance platform made all the difference for the timid family members.

“Snorkel cruise”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Overall, this was a very good experience. The "captain" was very entertaining, the crew was very friendly, and the food was good and plentiful. My only reason for not giving it a 5 was I was a bit disappointed in the actual snorkel area. I had a much better experience on a beach that I had a short hike to...more colorful coral, more turtles, more fish variety. However, trip was very good and I would recommend it to people, as the history of the area was interesting, also.

“Fair Wind is a must do”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

The morning trip on the Fair Wind is a great trip. It is a must do if you are on the Big Island. This was our six time on the Fair Wind, that should tell you something.
