A co-worker recommended this company for the night manta ray snorkel since he said that smaller boats were better and they would travel to different locations if no manta rays show up. However, I was going on a free re-do (see my other review) so decided to book the 5 hour Expedition South Kona trip instead. This was a GREAT... More

Caption Bill and Kai were great making sure everyone had a fun time on the 5 hour trip. We snorkeled at 3 great spots and ducked into sea caves and watched the spinner dolphins jump and spin! He shared great stories, had awesome off the beaten path recommendations for poke and coffee and the food on the trip was fresh... More

We did the 4 Hour Snorkeling trip with Captain Bill and Skyler - what an awesome experience! They were both a lot of fun and very knowledgeable about the places we visited. We were lucky enough to see a whale, a sea turtle and several bottle-nosed dolphins on the trip - completely by accident! I would highly recommend this Snorkeling... More

Great group to do the Mantra Ray snorkel with! I have done the scuba dive twice but this snorkel is just as good. The manta rays were within an inch or two of our masks. What is great about Sea Quest is they are a smaller boat right out of Keahou harbor so they get out there quick and they... More

Had an amazing day with Captain Lauren and first mate Jess.... Had friends in town visiting from Alaska so thought this would be a great adventure for all of us. The crew was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Even the other boats stalkers were entertaining. Contrary to the other boats belief we definitely had the best crew and the best-looking crew.......

The night snorkel with the manta rays was a once in a lifetime fantastic experience! The staff were friendly and accommodating and it was great being on a small boat with a small group. Wetsuits were provided although water was pretty warm. We would definitely use this company again.

We did the 5 hour South Kona Snorkel trip (3 stops) with Captain Steve and first mate Kevin. Fantastic tour of 3 very different types of ocean water. Because we were in a raft of 13, we were able to go partially into lava caves and see up close lava tubes. Great guides and enough time at each stop. We... More
