Snorkel with Manta Rays Guaranteed

    What to Expect

    Once you arrive at the "World Famous Manta Ray Village" our expert staff will provide a knowledgeable and professional briefing as they prepare you to enter the water. After the briefing our staff guides you onto our state of the art “manta floatation device”. Here you will float above the manta rays as they feed on the microscopic plankton. Plankton rises from the bottom of the ocean at night and is attracted to the light source attached to the float. As your incredible snorkel experience comes to and end our staff guides you back onboard where snacks and hot cocoa wait. Snorkel time is approximately 1 hour.

    My husband and I went out on an 8:30pm night snorkel to see the manta rays, and while we knew it would be a touristy activity I was put off by how very touristy and crowded it was. The boat heading out was packed with every inch of space occupied by people, including one raucous

    Top notch business. Safety is their #1 concern for the you and the Mantas. One of my top 3 things to do in Hawaii. Over half dozen Mantas seen during most time in the water. Beyond expectations. Highly recommend.

    I can't speak highly enough about the expertise of the crew, the education they provided about the mantas, and their general care for all those on the boat. The water was rough the night we went, so holding on to the bar and trying to keep the noodle (swimming noodle used to
