Our Boats

One advantage that we have in viewing mother nature at her finest is our vessels.

Our fleet consists of a variety of well maintained, USCG certified vessels. Our four rafts, Sea Quell, Kai Imi, Lilikoi, and Manta Raiv, carry just Fourteen guests (although they are certified for 18!) as well as your USCG licensed captain and crew. Since we take such small groups on our Kona snorkel tours, we can offer you a more personalized experience that the big catamarans (and even the bigger rafts) cannot provide.

Note that Lilikoi and Manta Raiv both offer shade with their bimini tops, and we typically use these rafts on the longer Expedition South Kona tours.

Sea Quest Rafting and Snorkeling Adventures is excited to announce the newest addition to our fleet, Manu A’o, a customized 26’ Glacier Bay catamaran. With a maximum of 6 guests per excursion, our catamaran is designed to ensure a memorable, safe, personal and comfortable tour. Manu A’o is equipped with a platform and custom made ladder at the stern of the boat that make getting in and out of the water incredibly easy. Seating is available both in the sun and in the shade, and is arranged to fully immerse our guests in both the exhilaration of the trip as well as the beauty of the Island. Come see for yourself!

All of our Big Island snorkeling tours include snorkel gear (including prescription masks!) and snacks (The Expedition South Kona tour adds a deli-lunch). Bottled water is always available. All we ask is that you bring a towel, sunscreen, and a camera… Oh, and of course, your sense of adventure!
