Capt. Lauren and Crew Member Skyler (sorry if names misspelled) were knowledgeable, funny, professional, and made the experience that much better. We did the 5-hr, 3 snorkel tour and it is well worth the cost. The boat was 14-person capacity and that was perfect for us. Would recommend these two and Sea Quest to any that ask.

This was our first time snorkeling, the crew was patient, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. Captain Dave and Skylar had a lot of fun trivia and thrilling raft maneuvers to keep everyone entertained. Although there are lots of other choices, I would highly recommend trying them out.

Friendly, knowledgeable captain on a very small boat that took us out to Captain Cook and back. We had a full hour to snorkel, Fine snacks, and a leisure Lee trip back along the waterfront where he pointed out lava tubes and other notable features of the land and shared some history as well. Highly recommend.

Swimming with manta rays was one of the most awesome experiences of my life. A must do in the Big Island. To see them that close and actually have them rub against you was amazing. Hanna, Jenna and Micheal made it all the better with their knowledge, enthusiasm and senses of humor. It was a smaller boat than some of... More

Had a great time! The crew (Bill and Sam) were so friendly and informative. We really enjoyed the tour of the coastline we were given between sites and all local history tidbits along the way. The captain was always certain to take us to a spot with calm waters and good visibility. Saw so many green sea turtles. Highly recommend... More

From the moment we called to book our tour to the time we got off the boat we were treated exceptionally. The tour staff Grace,Manu,Jessie and Mike were knowledgable, safety conscious and fun. We had an amazing snorkel adventure watching the Manta Rey in their natural habitat.

This is a night time tour with the same company we had a fantastic 5-hour snorkeling day adventure with. Let me just say the crew add more to an experience than I realized. the day crew was fabulous - the night the crew - ehhhh! They didn't seem to have any chemistry together. The one girl - her name escapes... More

I really liked the online reservation and signing waiver form. Our captain was Cpt. Steve (a great guy). The crew are very professional and know what they do. I liked their caring about coral reefs and damaging them while snorkeling. They will make your experience of boating and snorkeling a comfortable one on top of the beauty of the pacific... More
