We did both the night Manta Ray dive and the Dolphin snorkel. they were amazing and beyond our expectations. The host/diver/instructor Kira, was fantastic and fit too! She dragged our Manta frame around with 6 of us in tow to the best manta spots. Another thing, having only 6 of us was the best. The other tours with more people... More

This was by far the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. We saw a ton of Manta Ray's that were hanging out under our lights and giving us a spectacular show (sometimes up to four at a time!). Our guide Kira took the extra time to swim us over to the best location to see the mantas when... More

We (2 adults and 2boys, ages 10 and 13, went on a night time snorkeling trip with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures on August 6, 2014 and had an amazing adventure! The key to our experience is that CRSA only takes 6 people on their boat so you really get their full attention. A lot of the other tours were jam... More

My husband, friends and I went on the night time Manta Ray snorkel tour together. It was amazing to see these beautiful creatures doing somersaults right underneath us. My husband and I went on the dolphin tour. We were able to snorkel in a few different areas with spinner dolphins. They got so close to us and we could hear... More

We booked the 3.5 hour tour and were the only ones that day. So we essentially had a private charter! Karl and Kira were so professional, informative, and nice. Within 3 minutes (no exaggeration!) of leaving the harbor, we were surrounded by dolphins. Kira said that some days it takes 15 minutes to 1.5 hours to see any! After going... More

I booked Captain Ron for a snorkeling-with-dolphins trip based on reviews here and I'm glad I did. Although Ron had to stay ashore due to a back injury before our trip, he left us in the HIGHLY capable hands of Captain Zack and Erin. They were outstanding and really made our experience special. They worked hard all morning to ensure... More

My husband, 11 year old, and I went out with Kira and Captain Zack. There were only 5 of us total and we were really glad that we picked one of the smaller operators, versus the boats with tons of people. They took great care of us both in and out of the water with clear instructions and help with... More

So glad we chose Coral Reef. Many different companies offer this experience, but Coral Reef definitely makes it special. Kira and Carl are very knowledgeable, make sure that you have everything you need and genuinely love what they do. When snorkelers from other companies overcrowded us in the water, Kira handled them very politely and made sure that the other... More

This was the highlight of my trip to Hawaii. Felt like I was seeing aliens on their home planet. Kira and Zack were the perfect hosts and their clear instructions and expertise ensured we had the best experience possible with multiple mantas coming within inches of our faces. It was a truly magical evening that I wish everyone could share.... More
