Wow, this tour was just fantastic. We found the preparation and organisation of this tour company just perfect and so professional. The manta rays really are the 'Butterflies of the sea' . We saw so many and so close I had to suck in my stomach to let them past. We loved how there were regulars like 'Amanda' who seemed... More

We did an afternoon tour to Captain cook's bay which was disappointing for the snorkeling part. The free Kahalua beach has much more variety of fishes to discover (and is cheaper). The crew was nice and helpful. As the snorkeling stop was shorter than anticipated (every one was back in the boat rather quickly ..) we had an interesting tour... More

We were lucky enough to have JC as our captain and guide - he was funny, charming, extremely competent but best of all, was an absolute goldmine of information about everything from marine life to the history of Hawaii.

Our morning snorkelling trip was excellent. The captain made it fun. The two member crew was filled with knowledge and most helpful when one of our members became sick 1/2 way thru.

We had so much fun with Captain Bill. Our snorkeling group got done "way early" in Bill's opinion and he said he never goes back early. So, he took us along the Kona coast and showed us sea caves and blow holes - hop close!

We heard about Sea Quest through our travel guide, and that it was a highly recommended activity. We couldn't agree more! Our guides, Captain Bill and Skyler, were very knowledgeable and so much fun. We boat went fast so we were able to get to the snorkeling area quickly. We snorkeled in 2 separate areas with beautifully clear waters, saw... More

Bill & Skyler were excellent guides and the snorkeling was magnificent. Every time I thought I'd seen all the types of fish another species would swim by! Even saw. Eels going in and out of crevices. Clarity was terrific can't say enough about it! Was a rough ride, but so worth it!
