Wonderful night snorkeling with the mantas. Captain Eric, Chris and lane provided plenty of entertainment. Wet suits and snorkel gear provided. Dolphins swam with our boat out to the site too. We hung on a platform with lights and the mantas showed up!! Wow!!! Amazing!!

We booked the manta ray snorkel trip with Neptune Charlie's and were very impressed with the whole tour. We are very experienced at snorkeling and really did not expect to see many Manta Rays. It far exceeded our expectations. They also a great job working with all of the different levels of swimming ability from the guests and plan do... More

We did the dolphin day swim and night time manta dive - both were spectacular! The crew was fun, engaging, and helpful while the sights were perfect! We were able to swim with hundreds of dolphins in beautiful waters - it made for a very memorable honeymoon. We will definitely plan this excursion again next time we visit Kona, HI.... More

Neptune Charlies ran a top notch trip. The crew was informative, easy-going, and very personable and they tried their damndest to show us some mantas. Only had a few fly-bys on the night we went so our trip earned a free rebook. Good thing because I'll definitely book with Neptune Charlies again.

We had an awesome night seeing tons of Manta Rays. However, Neptune Charlies has no control of them. But, they do have control of their incredibly professional, kind, fun, and safe crew. Also, just in case you are like me and dreading putting on a wet suit, It was no big deal.

My 2 sons (ages 12 and 10) and I went on the night snorkel with mantas on 7/20/2015. We arrived at the manta site near the airport, which was about 20-30 min boat ride. We saw dolphins along the way there. Capt Heidi even let people jump off the top of the boat- my sons were thrilled. The crew is... More

My husband and I dove with Neptune Charlies to see the manta rays at night. The crew was truly amazing! Very friendly, professional and energetic. The boat left on time and arrived quickly to the snorkel / dive spot. Once at the spot I was happy to see we were actually on one of the larger dive / snorkel boats.... More
