Snorkel over manta rays on this guided snorkeling experience off the coast of Big Island. Take a short cruise to the snorkel site as the sun begins to set and pause to watch a spectacular sundown before jumping in to swim among massive manta rays in their natural setting. Back onboard, enjoy snacks, drinks, and use of the onboard washrooms. Round-trip transport and equipment included.
  • Snorkel with manta rays in their natural environment
  • Guided, half-day tour with equipment and refreshments included
  • Boat cruise to take in a Hawaiian sunset off the coast of Big Island
  • Book with confidence. If you don't spot any rays, book another excursion at no charge
What to Expect
Arrive at the Honokohau Marina’s north side to meet your guide, choose your snorkel gear, and get a safety briefing. Next, it’s on to the boat for a cruise up the Kona Coast toward the manta ray snorkel site. As the sun sets, find a comfortable spot onboard to watch the vibrant, sunset colors streak the sky as you bob on the waves. Before the sun goes down, gear up and jump into the water to snorkel over manta rays swimming below. Enjoy the warm sea and amazing underwater sights before getting back on the boat for complimentary refreshments as you return to the marina. All equipment included.

The crew was friendly and helpful and the mantas are magnificent. There were about half a dozen swimming in our vicinity and several repeatedly came up right under the light board, inches away from us. One of them was at least 10 ft across. A very memorable part of the trip!

This was an amazing part of our trip to the Big Island. While I recommend anyone who has motion sickness to take your meds before you get on the boat, once you solve that problem, this is a remarkable experience. The guides keep everyone safe and are right there to handle

There were three adults in our party. Charles, Nathan, and Adam did a great job educating, entertaining, and guiding us. We saw 5 manta rays that kept barrel-rolling directly underneath us, inches away from our faces. The guys ended up moving our location to give us a better
