Manta rays right before your eyes!

This was awesome, my brother had tried a scuba ray adventure, but water was too rough and they saw none. This is a must better option!

Two thumbs up!

Great experience! Well maintained and professional operation. Captain and crew were friendly, entertaining and knowledgeable. Make sure to turn right once you turn into harbor b/c it is a little difficult to find in the dark.
Mantas share the aloha

Nice boat, warm showers when you get out of the water was a nice touch. Crew was fantastic and took care of everyone’s needs from beginner to advanced. Great experience that’s only available in Kona.
Amazing Manta Ray Experience
, Oct 2021
We had a great experience on this tour. The Manta Rays really put on a show for us.. Beautiful creatures 8-12ft in size. The boat was also very comfortable. The crew Adam and Jacob we're attentive and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this adventure. Thank you!

I was a little apprehensive snorkeling at night, but this turned out to be an awesome experience. No problems at all with the trip, but some of the other people were not very good at controlling their bodies while holding on to the platform, so that made it not as fun, but overall it was a GREAT experience and it was utterly amazing to experience these creatures up close and personal. They provided wet suit tops, so it wasn't cold at all. It was so cool to watch these mantas swim right up next to you. I'd recommend this trip to anyone who likes to snorkel. Simon (boat captain) was great and provided hot showers after getting out of the ocean.
what an experience!...

Awesome Gentle Giants
, Oct 2021
My husband and I loved the care and attention Jacob and his crew provided. I do not swim - but they made sure I had a great experience with a noodle and safety vest. The Manta Rays were divine🥰Gentle Giants. They would flip belly up and brush their bellies on our legs. There were so many of them. - 🐟🐢🌷💕loved the trip

Captain Jacob, Ula, any Greg were the perfect tour operators. This was the most awesome thing my husband and I have experienced. The mana rays get so close. Definitely would do this again.
