About this activity

This is a small group snorkel. Our boat holds approx. 14-20 passengers. Check in takes place at the harbor where you will provided with wet suit and snorkel gear.


When snorkeling with the Manta Rays you will hold on to a comfortable bar attached to a large surf board that has 16 bright LED drop lights. This makes it easy to keep our groups together and the mantas feed on the plankton underneath us that is attracted by our lights. Your swim guides will keep your board positioned over the manta ray snorkeling area. All snorkel gear is provided.

Hawaii is considered the #1 place in the world to view Mantas. The Manta Rays here in Kailua Kona have become conditioned where to go each night to find an easy meal; feeding on the plankton that is attracted by our underwater lights…which makes locating them easy for us! The Manta Rays wing span can reach over 20 feet across and weighing upwards of 1,000 pounds. Viewing these creatures is a wonderful experience and one to remember

My kids said this was the best part of the 3 week trip. They are 28 and 16. Beautiful animals! Do it.

Family of six thoroughly enjoyed seeing the manta rays. The sea was a little rough but the boat captain set the expectations correctly. It was a thrilling ride in the dark. My only constructive criticism would be that the crew were more informative and helpful to the folks in our group that were new to snorkeling and and explained more before getting in the water ie keeping legs up, etc. Overall excellent!!

I cannot rave enough about how amazing our trip was! Captain Ty and Megan were the absolute best and took my mother and I out solo even though most of the group cancelled on the Manta Ray swim. The boat ride there was so much fun in and of itself I would definitely recommend sitting toward the front of the boat and the sunset that we saw as we arrived at the manta ray swim was one of the most beautiful sunsets that I have seen in my entire life. Megan was an exceptional guide and got us right in the action. We had several manta rays doing back flips and munching all of the delicious plankton inches away from our noses. It was a memory that my mom and I will treasure for the rest of our lives and we are so grateful to Ty and Megan for the unforgettable experience.
