Unusual but well organized, my husband dove and watched the natural show from the bottom I hangout on top snorkeling and watching from above. Not only did we see the Sunset and learn about this gentle giant from an expert, we met other divers and snorkelers from all over the world. Always felt safe and looked out for.

My girlfriend and I did the night snorkeling with the Manta Rays on August 26, 2015 with Big Island Divers and had an absolutely amazing time. We rode out with Captain Scott and our guide, Laeo who were both amazing. Beverages and snacks were provided during the boat ride to and from the snorkel/dive sight, which was awesome. Once we...

We did the night manta ray dive- loved it, and would definitely recommend it. Our first night dive, and a good way to start. Had 3 mantas come visit,which was really cool. They also come really close to the snorkelers, so that experience may be comparable. Their service was great all the way through, and they have clearly done this... More

My husband, daughter and I did the night manta ray snorkel, which was the highlight of our vacation. They have various prescription eye masks, which I much appreciated. Leao and Captian John were great. Special thanks to Leao for making my daughter feel comfortable in the water even though she felt seasick. Seeing the mantas up close was amazing! A... More

Big Island Divers rock and offer endless opportunities to play in the water! We were fortunate to experience the evening manta ray snorkel with a perfect combination of guides, Captain Samantha and Leau (aka THOR)! The two were fun, informative, persistent, and so very accommodating! Leau guided and powered (he pulled) our raft of snorkelers all over the bay! A... More

Brian, Zane and Patrick were great. Brian was our swimmer and got everyone in front of the dolphins and we had plenty of time. I was actually able to free dive down and spin with a baby dolphin. The boat ride was fun and the guys made everything exciting.

Did the snorkeling with the dolphins. We did see some but not a lot due to the heavy rainfall the day before. The captain Mark and guide Chad did their very best to keep us active and not bored. Very well oiled company. The check in was easy and they had maps to the dock. I would recommend this company... More

Wow.... Wow, wow, wow.! This was one of those truly great moments that help make up a life lived. Paying the money to do this adventure should be viewed as the whole and not just the Manta's which I should say was simply fantastic. We had eight show up and we were treated to the incredible ballet that is their... More

One of the best dives I have ever done. Manta Ray Dive, highly recommended with Big Island Divers. I did not have a car to go to the harbor, but they were more than happy to give me a ride to and from the shop to the harbor. Caprain Chris and Dive Master Andrea are awesome and funny, inform you...
