Then we had some fabulous story time with mikey b... More

I had a great time. The crew were both professional and relaxed, I felt extremely safe with them. I had only snorkled once before but Sam was very patient and knew exactly how to ease me into scuba. I wish I could have spent the whole day out there.

This trip on the Night Manta Ray Snorkel was the BEST. Capt. Mikey B was entertaining as well as skillful. We had a great time with Sara and Zane, but our snorkel guide, Megan, was super. The only downer was that we are used to "free diving" with snorkeling, but this arrangement required snorkelers to stay on the surface. No... More

My husband and I visited Kona in September and went on a boat trip (Manta Night Dive) with Big Island. We also rented tanks and weights from their shop for our numerous shore diving adventures. We were very impressed with their boats, captain and crew and the Manta Night dive was one of the most amazing dives we have have... More

I did the scuba and my wife did the snokling. It was an amazing experiance with a professional team. The Manta experiance is A Must if you are an under water fan. The company and team are real pro and every thing from registration to prep and gear was great. Nice to see pro's in work!

My husband and I joined Big Island Divers for the manta ray snorkel/night dive last month. The whole experience was one of the highlights of our honeymoon, and the crew/staff of Big Island was great. We saw a few mantas during the first dive, but I was still totally unprepared for the proper night dive, or, as they called it,... More

What an excellent dive, started with friendly staff in the shop and then later on the boat with skipper Scott, dive masters Jessica and Laurie all very knowledgable, safe and professional as well as fun. Boat ride a mere 20 - 30 minutes to dive site with food and drink provided. They went out of their way to make everybody... More
