Overview

Swim among manta rays in a feeding frenzy during this unique nighttime activity in Kona. Slip into the dark water with your snorkeling guides and watch the 'manta ray ballet' as the giants appear out of the darkness to feast on the abundant plankton. Let chills run down your spine as these gentle, docile creatures, which can weigh up to 1000 lbs (450kg) and measure 16 feet (5 meters) across, swim just an arm's reach away. Use of all snorkel gear, wetsuits, and flotation devices is included.
  • Swim with giant manta rays after dark as they feed on plankton
  • Get up close and personal with these docile creatures
  • Named one of the Travel Channel's 'Top 10 Things To Do in Your Lifetime'

The manta rays are a must see

It was a great trip. The water was a little rough, but the number and close proximity of the manta rays made it all worthwhile. Highly recommend this for everyone.

Once in a lifetime experience

This was the most exciting and educational Manta Ray session for me. I’ve snorkeled with Mantas twice before with other businesses. This, by far, was my favorite. Unlike my previous sessions, this was focused on snorkeling. The others had scuba divers and snorkelers. This one had a smaller party as well. One thing that I really liked was the floating board. The board was clutch because it gave comfort to my 13yo daughter, as she is not the strongest swimmer. The board was also great because of the lighting it provided. My previous experience was just with a flashlight. This board provided better lighting, thus more mantas. Not only that, the mantas came up close and personal. Four times did the mantas brush up on me. During this session, there were 6 mantas entertaining us with their grace. With that said, the workers were great. Mike and Michael were awesome, helpful, and informative. Mike actually assisted my daughter into the water. She was quite nervous, but he was able to calm her nerves. This experience is a one in a lifetime thing and I would recommend it with this company to everyone visiting the Big Island!

It was spectacular to see these majestic manta rays feeding among us. They get so close to you. I don't know where else you can do this experience but it is definitely worth it if you're on the big island. The crew was nice and welcoming and knew a lot about these rays.
