This company goes above and beyond to provide the best experience possible. I was so impressed with the snorkel experience, I booked two more tours with them. Captain Kendra was awesome and I loved how this was the only company to take out 8 snorkelers per tour. It provided an incredibly intimate trip. We saw a baby whale and got... More

The SeaQuest crew is awesome - knowledgeable, helpful, and respectful of the manta rays. They take smaller group sizes - we had 11 people on our boat. The mantas come up incredibly close to eat plankton and what a mesmerizing show! I really enjoyed all the information the crew shared about these elegant creatures. I was completely immersed in watching... More

Despite the rain (which never happens in Kona we were told) we had a GREAT time with Sea-Quest! They took us to the best spots, JC had an incredible amount of fun information about the island and where we were visiting. And the deli lunch was FAR more delicious than I had anticipated. Over-all if we had stayed vacationing longer... More

We went out on a night snorkel with the Manta Rays! It was truly something to remember! Our crew was fabulous, John, Hana, and our boat captain were FUN, knowledgeable and provided the most amazing hour of snorkeling for us! The cookies and hot cocoa were much appreciated at the end of the session! I picked a "friends" visit, because... More

What a magnificent adventure we had!! The boat ride was exhilarating and the snorkeling was magical! Captain Steve was so nice and he was very knowledgeable as he took us through caves and lava rock formations. We chose the short, 3 hour tour and it was a great decision. A must when in Kona!!

Sea Quest snorkeling tour was amazing! My family and I did the 5 hour snorkeling tour (included 3 snorkeling sports which were better than you can imagine, lunch - which was delicious and fantastic history lessons on the way about the island) Lauren and Skyler were our crew and they were fantastic. I highly recommend them and I will definitely... More
