Awesome snorkeling with an adventurous and knowledgeable captain. He got in close for us to view the sea caves and shore areas. The captain was a long time local and provided detailed historical information and anecdotes.

Best way to go to enjoy the clear blue waters of Hawaii. We got to see a humpback whale that was in the area as well as many bottlenose dolphins on the journey to the snorkeling site. Great support from the crew in being very helpful as well as knowledgeable of the waters and shore areas. Strongly recommend going on... More

My son and I did this on the night we arrived at the Sheraton. We chose Sea Quest because it ran small groups rather than larger boats. Sea Quest run a great simple business - the reality is the mantas steal the show. We were lucky on the night we went as there were heaps in the water and it... More

We had 2 trips with sea quest and both were absolutely fantastic. The sea was rather rough when we went to snorkel captain cook, but once there it was calm as promised. We also did the night manta ray which was indeed the most thrilling snorkelling experience ever !!! Thanks to all the crew at sea quest for giving us... More

Crew (Josh, Josh, Captain Steve and Jeanne(?)) were knowledgeable and entertaining. Snorkel equipment fit perfectly and excellent quality. Manta put on a show immediately on entering the water spinning many times below our light board. Trip was cut a little short by incoming swell but I recommend to see Mantas in any Hawaii visit. It is a highlight!

My wife and I had a tremendous snorkeling experience along the south side of the Big Island. We snorkeled three locations and last two were spectacular; clear with great reefs and loads of fish. We also got to see humpback whales fairly close and many spinner dolphins. Captain Kendra was great and very knowledgeable along with her assistant Kevin. Snacks... More

I have to say I had an wonderful experience we saw a ton of manta rays. The team is very knowledge and friendly. I was a bit panicked because it was my first time snorkeling but the team was very sweet and ensured I felt comfortable and had a great experience. I totally recommend this excursion.

I did the snorkeling with mantas option after reading the great reviews. I was not disappointed! This was so fun! We were lucky enough to have between 2-4 mantas feeding right below us the entire time. It's a really incredible experience to be inches away from these beautiful giants. The operators are super friendly and helpful too, making the experience... More

We went with this company for a different experience. And I'm glad we did. There were only 7 people on our boat, us and a family of four. Even if we had a full boat it would have only been 14 people and 2 crew. Steve and Amanda were great. The boat ride could be a little bumpy, but the... More
