Big Island Manta Ray Night Kayak and Snorkel Adventure
With your local guide, kayak along the Kona coast to the snorkeling spot of the night. Dive into the clear blue waters and enjoy the sight of these lovable manta rays swimming peacefully by you.
Manta rays feed most actively at night when plankton rises toward the water's surface. Your guide will use powerful diving lights to attract plankton and enable you to get close to the rays. As you will be in a kayak, you will have the freedom during your 45 minutes in the water to move to different snorkeling spots to look for manta rays.
When the tour is over, you will kayak back to the Keauhou Bay with your guide.

It was a disappointment as they did not have but one light to attract mantas and we had to keep going over by the boats with stronger lights see a manta and then we got chased away by their group leader. The people who did run it were kind and helpful but this is a rag tag outfit.
What a wonderful experience seeing so many Manta Rays. What I liked about the tour company is they let you swim free. I would not of enjoyed being on a board or tied together. I did find it a bit uncomfortable not having a seat on the kayak. It was a little hard on the back kayaking just sitting on the plastic. I did find it well organized and had three people from the tour company with us. Had lots of Manta Rays and was glad I also had brought my own light. Loved the somersaults the Manta's did right under us. Recommended them to several others visitors on the Island that were staying at the same condo establishment I was at. MM Sacramento CA
I had a BLAST, and I didn't even see any Manta Rays! The whole kayaking and snorkeling aspects of this trip were enough for me!
LOVED EVERY MINUTE! this tour was definitely an adrenalin rush but an amazing experience. one with many memories and stories to tell.
