Everyone was very professional and helpful. Ian was our guide. The boat ride can be a little rough if you ride in the front so try the back. We did the moonlight tour and when we arrived to the site there were plenty of other tours but what seemed like a ton of manta rays! When we were told to... More

Since this is one of only a few places in the world this can be done, it's certainly an amazing experience not to be missed. There was not much activity the night we were there but still very cool to get brushed by these large creatures. We had a pod of spinner dolphins riding our wake right next to the... More

Once in a life time experience to have these magical creatures glide right next to you. Nothing prepares you for the wonder of this experience and the crew were helpful and make you feel at ease in the water it was a little cold but hey put up with that to see the Mantas you won't be disappointed.

This was by far the best thing we did on the Island. Dray and Matt were wonderful and funny. We saw at least 9 different manta rays and most came within inches of us!!! Spectacular! I would do this again Thank you!

Awesome company with which to book your Hawaiian adventures! Dre and the captains, who run the Zodiacs, are professional and fun. They ensure you have a great time and work with you if the weather does not cooperate. Manta Ray Moonlight tour was absolutely terrific! Do recommend taking Dramamine to ensure no sea sickness happens. You do not want to... More

Loved this experience! Guides were knowledgeable and humorous. Everyone wanted the best for the guests. Great experience with cool guys - and the mantas were phenomenal. They swam so close. Beautiful and majestic creatures. This needs to be on your bucket list!

First off, these guys have an amazing guarantee policy. Most companies have a 50% off or free trip during the same vacation. I went a few years ago and saw ZERO manta rays (some consolation, saw some whales on the way to the spot) - basically got cold looking at fish for 45 minutes. I was unable to go again... More

The sunset Manta Ray snorkel began with close up views of whales! The Ray viewing was incredible. We were treated to 45 minutes of non stop action with the rays continually coming within inches of our faces! Dre and Sandy knew exactly where to find the Rays and how to position our group for maximum viewing. As an added bonus... More

We were really pleased with Splashers' Morning Dolphin & Reef Snorkel. Great value! Captain Dave and Crewman Matt were lots of fun and really took good care of us. I was a little apprehensive to snorkel because it had been many years, but they gave me all the information and reassurance I needed to have an exceptional time. We saw... More

If you book with anyone else you're doing it wrong!! We did the sunset trip to snorkel with manta rays and it was absolutely amazing! We were originally scheduled to do the moonlight trip but received a call early in the day to let us know we were the only 2 people booked and they wouldn't be able to run... More
