Overview
Snorkel over manta rays on this guided snorkeling experience off the coast of Big Island. Take a short cruise to the snorkel site as the sun begins to set and pause to watch a spectacular sundown before jumping in to swim among massive manta rays in their natural setting. Back onboard, enjoy snacks, drinks, and use of the onboard washrooms. Round-trip transport and equipment included.
Highlights
  • Snorkel with manta rays in their natural environment
  • Guided, half-day tour with equipment and refreshments included
  • Boat cruise to take in a Hawaiian sunset off the coast of Big Island
  • Book with confidence. If you don't spot any rays, book another excursion at no charge
What to Expect
Arrive at the Honokohau Marina’s north side to meet your guide, choose your snorkel gear, and get a safety briefing. Next, it’s on to the boat for a cruise up the Kona Coast toward the manta ray snorkel site. As the sun sets, find a comfortable spot onboard to watch the vibrant, sunset colors streak the sky as you bob on the waves. Before the sun goes down, gear up and jump into the water to snorkel over manta rays swimming below. Enjoy the warm sea and amazing underwater sights before getting back on the boat for complimentary refreshments as you return to the marina. All equipment included.

This was the most awesome experience. The Manta Rays were literally just inches from our faces. My lady friend had barely gotten in place on the light board when two rays looped up right in her face and I could hear her underwater squealing with joy. It was great fun and

Those mantas get close! Very gentle, but it's still like a ballet with demons. They will brush up against you, but do not touch them. We had six of them and they glide in front of you out of nowhere. Could be scary for kids. Manta will swim right at you with fully open mouth and

This beat my expectations, I was in the water with about 9-10 mantas who swam as close as two inches from my face. They're majestic. Our guides mentioned we got a particularly good showing, sometimes there's only 1 or 2. I booked last minute on a whim with 1 night in Kona
