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!!

I highly recommend them and I will definitely... More

Our family snorkeled in Kealakekua bay by the Captain Cook monument. Snorkeling time is around an hour, but it felt like just a few minutes. Captain Dave was an excellent guide, he showed some shoreline attractions, and he can tell great stories.

My husband and I snorkeled at Captain Cook Monument with sea quest snorkel tours. I am a non swimmer and the crew did everything to make me feel comfortable in water . The whole experience was enjoyable and I would definitely try their manta ray /dolphin swim tour next time I visit Big Island.Highly recommend them.

We did the night snorkeling to see manta rays. It was a great trip, but three of us got sea sick. You float in the water, holding on to a board that rocks kind of like a boat. I'd recommend wearing those motion sickness wrist bands. That said, you get insanely close to the manta rays. One brushed me several... More
