I can not properly rate...

I can not properly rate because it was cancelled 20 minutes before our requested arrival for a storm that never came. There was a little bit of rain an hour before. I rated low because they could have called us before we were struggling to find the check in point.

Aloha, Although we are sure you were greatly disappointed to have had your excursion cancelled with such short notice and of course we would always rather take a trip than be forced to cancel it, but the safety of our guests and staff is the most important thing to us at Sea Quest Hawai’i. That the weather notice we received ultimately became a very rare blizzard warning here on our beautiful island coupled the fact that we had waited until the last minute so that we had the most up to date and accurate meteorological information leaves us feeling content we made the right decision to maintain our high standards where the safety and quality of our tours is concerned. We wish you a very merry Holiday season and hope we have the opportunity to provide you with actual criteria to review one of our excursions instead of our safety policies in the future as our incredible staff work so very hard to ensure a safe and fantastic product every single day. Mahalo, The Sea Quest ohana

Captain Brenden was knowledgeable, nice, and an excellent historian. Full of knowledge about the history of the island and its geology. The snorkeling was some of the best I’ve ever experienced. So awesome! Thank you! You gave us a great day!

The snorkeling was excellent, the snacks delicious and the boat ride along the coast beautiful. My husband was able to enjoy snorkeling for the first time because they had prescription masks! I highly recommend this tour!!

Enjoyed taking this trip not only did it include snorkeling near the captain cook monument where we saw a large amount of tropical fish but also a coastal tour of the lava caves and tubes. I highly recommend this tour.

Cannot say enough about how positive our WHOLE experience was! Prescription goggles were provided which made our daughter’s snorkeling experience so much better! Our son absolutely loved the boat ride and we all learned so much about the island. Our Captain was very knowledgeable about Captain Cook! Fascinating! Will book another adventure with them for sure!

An Amazing Experience

This was such an amazing experience I can’t recommend enough! The team was so Amazing and accommodating, there were light snacks, fresh fruit cut up and drinks offered many times! I was so nervous to snorkel at first but all my fears went away with their help and I ended up staying out the longest! We got to see tons of fish, beautiful coral reefs, white tip sharks ( they don’t bother you and we’re tucked away), spinner head dolphins, an eel, sea caves, lava tubes and much more! I loved how it was a smaller bunch of people we were with and made the experience all the more better. I would do again hands down 10/10!
