We were able to see a bunch of manta rays that got within inches of us while feeding! Unbelievable experience and will always remember it! Highly recommend to anyone!

The eka canoe was a nice, less intrusive and well guided than other tours out at the same time. Its simplicity and authentic crew really made the difference. I'd pick this group over all others.

Up close and personal experience! All of the tours are in the same spot together so it’s not a huge deal which one you choose, but ours had the coolest boat!

Absolutely incredible experience, and the entire crew knew SO much about the Manta rays! Easily saw 5-6 different ones, and each is uniquely named. I would highly recommend this event and this tour specifically!

It was invigorating to be out in the open ocean under the stars. Our guide was a lot of fun and kept us laughing as we prepared to get into the water. Best of all was the incredible experience of these gentle giants swimming so close up to us as they fed right below the lights we were hanging onto. It was absolutely amazing! Truly the highlight of our trip!

Great friendly and inspiring guys to see the Ray's with

Great owners that have the heart in the right place. They explain a lot about the Ray's and you can aks them anything. Seeing the manta Ray's is just an awesome experience seeing them up so close mere an inch from your face. Even if you are a bit nervous these guys will help you out. The trip in the boat is quite short but felt really to be in the old style double canoe boat. Would definitely recommend anyone seeing the manta Ray's if you are on big island and would definitely recommend eku canu for it.
