We just spent the morning with Captain Bill and First Mate Anna. Great crew! Very engaging and knowledgeable. They were super-nice to our nine year-old nephew. We toured many sea caves, snorkeled at The Place of Refuge and Captain Cook Memorial. A memorable day of Honu (in both locations!), 50-60 Hawaiian spinner dolphins with babies, Hawaiian Monk Seal, and scores fish. Breathtaking. If you are on the Big Island - Do this!

Captain Tony and his first mate, Sarah, showed us a wonderful time on the 4 hour, 2 snorkel site, tour of Honaunau and Kealakekua. Along with the awesome snorkeling, Tony also took us into some caves along the shoreline and we then ventured out to sea to try to find some "larger" marine life. We eventually came across some Dolphins who were very curious and came right up to our zodiac to say hello and pose for some excellent pictures. This tour was awesome. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to get wet, see some awesome ocean life and have some laughs with the great staff.

We had a wonderful time with Sea Quest. Due to delayed flights, we were unable to go on the initial trip, they rebooked with no problems at all. Captain Steve was super funny and informative. Drove the boat like a master..kids age 12 and 15 loved the speed and bumps. Snorkelling spots had lots of fish and we felt like we had enough time to see everything. Snacks were provided. The highlight was stopping to enjoy the pods of dolphins swimming around the boat. We put our gopro in the water and got some great pictures and video of them. Overall it was a great company to book with and spend a morning boating, exploring caves and snorkelling.

This adventure was fantastic! Loved the speed boat ride to Captain Cook, the fish where plentiful & beautiful and a lot of variety. Captain Joe and Sarah were very nice and when my 5 year old wanted a break, hung out with them while the rest of us snorkeled on. After snorkeling the dolphin pods where everywhere! Joe and Sarah were even impressed with how many there where this particular day. The sights of the island from the boat ride were indescribable, and on the way back you get up real close, even going in sea caves...I was in awe! If you don't take this adventure, you will miss out! Thanks Joe, Sarah and Sea Quest for helping us end our 2 1/2 week, island hopping vacation on a very high note! God Bless
