The experience was amazing. Captain Kevin was very informative and knowledgeable and an overall nice guy. He stopped the boat multiple times to let us see whales and dolphins. We visited 3 different snorkeling spots, which were all marvelous. We saw many different types of fish and multiple turtles. We were also provided with high-quality snorkeling equipment. The lunch and snacks were delicious.

This was easily the best and most extensive snorkeling experience I’ve ever had. Our tour guide was very interactive and informative. I believe our tour was about 4 hours long, and they took us to 3 different snorkeling locations, each with a variety of marine life. We saw whales on our way to one of the locations, and the tour guide stopped the boat to teach us about them. They also provided a book with the most common marine life in the area so that you could identify what you saw and learn interesting facts. They assigned us a specific snorkel by number, so we were not having to share used ones. On route to each destination, they held our snorkels for us. The lunch was also a highlight. They had authentic Hawaii drinks and a variety of sandwiches/salads to choose from. They also provided us a variety of local fruit to eat. Overall, this was a very memorable experience and something I will recommend to anyone visiting the island..

Skylar and MJ were wonderful. We saw amazing fish and we stopped at sea caves, arches and were provided great commentary. Skylar and MJ were both very friendly and fun to talk with. Liked only having 15 people on the tour. Would highly recommend!

Had a great morning snorkeling with our family. Our kids range from 8 to 20 and Kourtney and Skyler were amazing. They learned and called every passenger by name and were super helpful. When our youngest spotted an eel in the water and panicked they were so kind and helpful letting him just hang out in the boat. We chose sea quest because we wanted the smaller boat and the history along with the sea cave and arch visits. Did not disappoint! In addition to snorkeling we spotted some bottle nose dolphins that put on a show. It was so great!

This was amazing! We took the snorkeling boat trip. To start we enjoyed a envigorating boat ride to the bay. At the bay they let us snorkel freely around a certain area with the boat nearby for breaks and snacks. After we left the bay we went sightseeing around the coast of Kona seeing a few different rock formations including the grotto, a series of sea caves and lava tunes as seen in the picture below, and red hill, a cliff made up of cindercone that made the hill look red as also seen below. This was a truly awesome experience thank to our captians Brandon and Skylar.

The fact that they have been completely booked and that my wife and I had to make reservations a month in advance says a lot about this company. We ended up doing the 3 hours of snorkeling at the Captain Cook Monument Reef. There wasn’t a lot of different kinds of fish, but there was plenty of fish and coral to observe. On the way back from the reef we stopped and looked at some of the different sea cave spots. The boat Captain was very knowledgeable about the area, and was able to pass on a lot of different pieces of information.
