Capt bill does an incredible job. First mate Erin was extremely at tentative. We did two snorkel sites, saw and learned soo much of the history of the Kona sea caves. The boat is perfect. Super fast and able to get the closest to the back of the sea caves. His years of experience really shows and we are so relieved we chose the this company !!!!!

We took the 5 hour snorkel trip with Sea Quest that covers 3 snorkel spots and provides a snack and deli lunch. Awesome day of adventure! We liked that the boat, a raft, had a covering to provide some shade. The guides were great and knowledgable about the area. Getting up close views of the shoreline and the sea caves was incredible. The best part was the snorkeling especially at the Captain Cook area. Just incredible! Thanks for such an amazing day!

We've been on Seaquest many times - sometimes multiple times per vacation! They always take us to the best spots, have the best staff and great on-board facilities. I recommend anyone who goes to Kona make sure you go out on Seaquest!

this was our second time going out with sea quest.
did the Kona south expedition again, so 3 sites.
the sites 1 and 3 again were the best. captain cook site by far the best.
loved the smaller boat, more intimate environment, staff called us by name.
they had all equipment on board for us, didn't take anything but towel and sunscreen.
this time around we had more visits and descriptions of sites along the way back to the harbor.
highly recommend again

Just took the 3 hour express to Captain Cook Monument and it was well worth the time and money. The trip out on the zodiac was fun and a great ride. Much more of a ride then on some of the larger boats. Because of the timing of the tour we didn't encounter large groups of snorkelers and were able to snorkel freely for over an hour. Saw lots of different fish and the corral was amazing. With the new restrictions on provate kayaks in the bay this is the way to go. Good trip, great captain, and wonderful snorkeling. Gott do it if in Hawaii!
