Captain Steve was excellent! Beyond the general safety tips and the in's and out's of snorkeling, we also learned the story of Captain Cook. The snorkeling was great as we took in a variety of marine life. After an hour in the water Captain Steve and prepared some much need refreshments. The trip back was also interesting as we were...

This is the second time we've taken the Sea Quest snorkel tour and both experiences have been amazing! A big part of the fun is that you travel with a maximum of 14 other snorkelers on a Zodiac boat which not only delivers you to incredible snorkeling spots but also allows you to access sea caves along the way. Captain... More

Lauren & Skyler were an excellent crew. The trip involved snorkeling at 3 different locations & there was information provided on some the structures along the banks in addition to local legends. I would recommend this for families (kids - 7+) & groups of people (12-15).

Choosing SeaQuest was the best decision! The smaller, raft-type boats are perfect for a small, intimate experience (the Captain learned all of our names and we joked the entire time), and the tour of the coastline is great with the smaller boats! You get to explore sea caves! We did the 5 hour Kona Expedition (three snorkel spots -- AMAZING).... More

Our guide, Steve, was knowledgeable and personable. In addition to providing detailed background on the coastal area, he also gave us some great local recommendations for what to do, see and eat.

Had an amazing time with captain bill and Amanda on our snorkel tour. The boat ride was awesome and captain bill was full of amazing information about the island. Sea caves where just an added bonus to the two snorkel locations we went too. Exceed our expectations!!! Def recommend and ask to go with captain bill as he won't disappoint.
