Jim and Sharon ran an excellent 830pm night snorkel. Interacted with five (5) beautiful Manta Rays who fed, danced, flipped and rolled all around us for over an hour. Incredible experience South of Kona. Friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Highly recommended experience and outfitter!

We did the night manta ray tour with Coral Reef and it did not disappoint. Our guides worked hard to get us in position, and when a Ray suddenly appeared, it was something I will never forget.
