We went out with Captain Steve and did the best snorkeling ever. He took us to two sites, and we went into caves, saw a sea monster, parrots, and playful dolphins. We highly recommend this trip.

Very disappointed in this company. Called to extend gift certificate and Sea Quest responded that they were "more than happy to extend, would love to get you out on tour." Then called to make a reservation well before the new expiration date. Had some family visiting and couldn't wait to go on tour! Also was excited to experience and recommend... More

Sea Quest was outstanding. Captain Tony and Cory were professional and caring. They provided everything to make this an unforgettable experience. Beautiful catamaran with only 6 passengers. I highly recommend this tour...LOVED IT! We swam with the giant manta rays. They were literally inches away from us, so gentle and majestic.

It was our first time in Hawaii, we sign up with Sea Quest for Captain Cook Express. Our Captin Kendra was very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. She answered many questions about the trip and over all Hawaii life.

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
