Great group to do the Mantra Ray snorkel with! I have done the scuba dive twice but this snorkel is just as good. The manta rays were within an inch or two of our masks. What is great about Sea Quest is they are a smaller boat right out of Keahou harbor so they get out there quick and they... More

Had an amazing day with Captain Lauren and first mate Jess.... Had friends in town visiting from Alaska so thought this would be a great adventure for all of us. The crew was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Even the other boats stalkers were entertaining. Contrary to the other boats belief we definitely had the best crew and the best-looking crew.......

The night snorkel with the manta rays was a once in a lifetime fantastic experience! The staff were friendly and accommodating and it was great being on a small boat with a small group. Wetsuits were provided although water was pretty warm. We would definitely use this company again.

We did the 5 hour South Kona Snorkel trip (3 stops) with Captain Steve and first mate Kevin. Fantastic tour of 3 very different types of ocean water. Because we were in a raft of 13, we were able to go partially into lava caves and see up close lava tubes. Great guides and enough time at each stop. We... More

Raft tour along South Kona was marvelous. Capt Dave and Skylar were excellent guides and hosts; they made it fun and interesting. They took us into sea caves, saw gorgeous cliffs and lava tubes. Snorkeling near Captain Cook's monument was the best!

We did the snorkel tour to Captain Cook and it was amazing!! Our captain (can't remember her name) was great as was her assistant. We had so much fun we signed up for the Manta Ray night snorkel. No words to describe this amazing adventure. Breathtaking!!!

Capt. Lauren and Crew Member Skyler (sorry if names misspelled) were knowledgeable, funny, professional, and made the experience that much better. We did the 5-hr, 3 snorkel tour and it is well worth the cost. The boat was 14-person capacity and that was perfect for us. Would recommend these two and Sea Quest to any that ask.

This was our first time snorkeling, the crew was patient, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Captain Dave and Skylar had a lot of fun trivia and thrilling raft maneuvers to keep everyone entertained. Although there are lots of other choices, I would highly recommend trying them out.

Friendly, knowledgeable captain on a very small boat that took us out to Captain Cook and back. We had a full hour to snorkel, Fine snacks, and a leisure Lee trip back along the waterfront where he pointed out lava tubes and other notable features of the land and shared some history as well. Highly recommend.
