The crew made this a fun no hassel trip, provided everything. Easy dive, just sat on the bottom and watched the show. Fast boat made more time on site.

Our guides were great. Scuba and snorkel! Safe, educational and fun! The young lady was considerate of the wildlife and so was our dive guide!

We loved our night with Kona Ocean Adventures!!! I hadn't dove in quite a while and the dive master made me feel safe and extremely comfortable throughout our experience. The mantas were breathtaking! Definitely our best trip on the Big Island.

The service was over the top. They had snacks and water. After diving they even had a hot water shower to rinse the salt water off of you. Very friendly. Perfect experience.

An unforgettable, unique and truly breathtaking experience, being so close to these large marine creatures. Some may find it confronting at first, but the crew were on hand at all times to look after us.

I am interested in the Manta Ray Snorkeling Night Tour. How long is the boat ride? And is it a typically choppy boat ride or relatively smooth?

Boat ride was only 20 minutes or so. We had choppy ride coming back in bit I imagine it varies.

I would like to take my 10 year old granddaughter on a night swim with the manta rays. She is an excellent swimmer, much better than her grandmother. If we go with you, do you have someone who goes into the water with us while we swim to the float? Mary Collier

Aloha, Thank you for the email. We always have a guide in the water on all our tours and being that your daughter is 10 years old, we will pay extra attention to her. This is a very easy activity for all ages.
