We took part in both the 5 hour expedition and the evening Mata Ray encounter. The staff was incredible, knowledgeable, and highly supportive. Captain Liam, for the day trip was very entertaining, in between scientific and cultural information. Captain Manu and his crew were very skillful in directing the group to view several Manta Rays in the time we were... More

Had a blast! Lauren was fun and informative. Skyler was extremely helpful. We saw whales and bottle nose dolphins up close. The caves and coastline were spectacular.

We choose Sea Quest because of the reviews and were not disappointed. Captain Lauren and her shipmate Skylar (sorry if I spelled that wrong!) were a terrific team. Great sense of humor, easy going and yet very conscious of all rules of the sea. Great with the folks who were new to snorkeling. It was some of the best snorkeling... More

This is the second time I have done a snorkeling trip with Sea Quest. It has always been a lot of fun. The snorkeling is fantastic but the additional local history and geological informational provided makes the trip even more fun. We also saw multiple dolphins and whales on our boat trip. I highly recommend this trip.

Lots of fun! I've scuba dived this twice and the snorkeling is just as good. The mantas can come within inches from you. I often had to move back so that I wouldn't touch them. The crew at SeaQuest was great.

Best snorkeling ever and unexpected humpback whale sightings including a nearly full body breach.... awe inspiring. Add to that great commentary by knowledgeable captain and a wild zodiac trip by sea caves, what more can you ask?

It was a wonderful trip to Captaun Cook's Bay Area. The fish were colorful and plentiful and the coral formations were beautiful. We saw a mama and baby whale; the captain gave us plenty of time to enjoy this experience, too.
