Swim with Wild Dolphins & Manta Rays everyday. Established in 2002 and still going strong; We have been the Winner of the Certificate of Excellence for 7 years now. We are a Big Island of Hawaii adventure for swimming with Dolphins & Manta Rays. Eco friendly, we follow the guidelines established to make our tours safe for the Manta Rays, dolphins and our guests. We are on the GREENLIST FOR MANTA RAY TOURS. ONLY CHOOSE A COMPANY THAT IS REGISTERED FOR SAFETY OF THE MANTA RAYS on the Green List.

We thoroughly enjoyed two trips with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures! The dolphin snorkel experience with Zac and Erin was incredible - we snorkelled with lots of dolphins, a trip we will never forget. Our evening trip with Zac and Sampson was equally as memorable. Not only did we see a perfect sunset but manta rays as well! An amazing "surreal"... More

The night Manta snorkel was an awesome one of a kind experience. This tour group did whatever it took to make sure we saw at least one manta. We had the late night booking on a somewhat stormy day so had to move harbors to calmer waters. Then we stayed until miraculously Koie and Vallaray decided to give us a... More

Went with Coral Reef two years ago and enjoyed it. This time Sampson was our guide and he was a good one. The captain was great too, sorry can't remember your name. Last time there was one ray and this time two. I will keep going till I can see the 6 or 18 that folks talk about. Hey, I... More

We participated in a private snorkeling tour with this company and it surpassed my expectations. The captain and the guide were friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The knew the local waters and reefs. The tour set expectations for seeing dolphins and snorkeling with fish. We not only saw the Dolphins but we're able to swim nearby with them! Great people to...

For our excursion with Coral Reef, my family and I met Earl and Erin (our captain and marine biologist respectively) at the harbor before boarding their boat in search of dolphins. First of all, Earl's deep passion for the Hawaiian waters was evident from the beginning and was well complimented by Erin's extensive knowledge and helpful guidance, which made for... More

Great communication from Ron and Erin, kept us informed on time changes and new location to see the Manta Rays. Zach and Sampson were fun and professional. Awesome experience, a must do. Its nice to have a small group, the other boats looked too crowded.

My husband and I lucked out with Coral Reef Adventures.. we had our own private charter as we were the only people to book a trip on a Friday! Captain Ron and Erin took us out to sea and let us dive in multiple times to snorkel with the spinner dolphins. It was incredible! We saw newborns following their moms,... More

I have two reviews for this great company! Originally my husband and I were only going to participate in the Manta dive. After further consideration we decided to do the dolphin swim too. The dolphin swim is a four hour excursion from 8:00-12:00 with lunch included, sandwiches, drinks, and brownies! Captain Ron and Erin were awesome. They only take out... More

We were originally scheduled to go with Big Island Divers for the manta snorkel; however, they phoned me that day to tell me they had an issue with their boat and referred us to Coral Reef. I was a little bit hesitant to reschedule with this company that I didn't know anything about. I went ahead and booked with Coral... More
