Departure Point

78-7130 Kaleiopapa St, Kailua-Kona, HI 96740, USA

Please meet us at Keauhou Harbor, 30 minutes prior to your time of departure. When you arrive at the harbor, we'll be parked near the boat dock. Look for a white van with lights on top. It can be difficult to find us in the dark, so please call if you don't immediately see us.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Board your boat at Keauhou Harbor in the evening, allowing you to reach the manta snorkeling site just in time for sunset. You’ll get a short introduction to the feeding habits of these wondrous creatures from your on-board naturalist as you travel to the snorkel site.

Once you arrive, grab your snorkel gear and get ready to experience this one-of-a-kind natural phenomenon. Snorkeling is optional, so those who choose to remain on board are free to enjoy the sunset. Those who choose to snorkel will jump in the water and grab onto a ‘light board,’ which helps attract plankton to its glowing surface. A certified swim guide will be nearby to help in the unlikely event there are any issues..

Soon the mantas will begin their aquatic ballet, swooping and diving through the water as they feed on the plankton attracted to this site. When your snorkel time is up, head back to your original starting point. You’ll leave your trip with unforgettable memories of this unexpected natural phenomenon, plus complimentary photos of your experience.

This tour is awesome. You can see manta rays up close and so many of them. The tour guide Hunter made the whole experience even more awesome he took good care of everyone and knew exactly how to react if someone panics or gets sea sick. Awesome crew!!

Soak up the RAYS!!!

This was amazing and completely worth it! Great value! We saw well over a dozen different Manta Rays (big ones and little ones). Our guides (Capt. Jason / Hunter / Kai [I think and am most likely misspelled his name]), were all very knowledgeable and friendly (had good jovial jokes too). I tried using my phone in the water safe bag, but didn't work too well, I would advise buying or renting one of their GoPro's....worth the extra cost so you can show your family and friends. I would definitely do this again and with their company. There are a lot of different companies that do this thing, but this one was a great value and there are no more than 12 people per tour so it is not like going on one of those huge boat tours where you feel cramped. It was amazing how close the Rays come up to you right in front of your face. If you like 3D movies, this is definitely something you should do.

i’m usually not one for group “tourist” activities but this was definitely a must-do. the guide and the captain were knowledgeable and entertaining and the dive itself was incredible with the rays coming merely inches away from your face!

This experience was out of this world! I cannot recommend this company enough! If there is only one thing you do while in Hawaii this should be at the top of your list! The experience alone is remarkable but the captain and diver were both very knowledgeable and truly made my trip. Thank you for this experience. I can guarantee my family and I will definitely be back! I left my wallet in the car and the one thing I recommended is that you bring a tip for the diver/ captain. They deserve it and just so you catch them in time (I didn’t- sorry guys) just make sure you bring it with you! Also if you guys can comment the name of your company I would love to book directly with your company. I’ve been to Hawaii twice and have done everything from swimming with dolphins to a luau and this by far was the most exciting memorable experience. 10 stars ⭐️ easy! Thank you guys again for making my trip!!! I
