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.

Our party of 5 had a great experience with Captain Simon, Nick, and Spinner. We had 3 manta rays that swam so close to us, you could see their eyes and sometimes they even brushed up against us. We will do this adventure again! Mahalo!
This was sold to us as a once in a lifetime experience. We saw two Manta Rays from a far distance. Due to the fact their was a dive group with a large LED light at the bottom of the sea bottom. This keep the...More
My family of 7 loved this experience. The guides were very respectful of these beautiful rays and provided several tips on viewing the creatures without disturbing them. To hear my 11 year old son laughing under water when the rays brushed up against him was...More
One of the most incredible experiences of my travels. The crew of Hang Loose boat tours (Sean and Jacob) were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. After a beautiful sunset we headed to the Bay, Jacob launched the float with lights and we entered the water. Holding...More
This was an awesome adventure. To see manta Ray's up close and personal was fabulous.
Simon, Spinner and Nick were terrific hosts and made sure we were taken care of.
I'll definitely do this adventure again!

It's not actually a ride. You don';t need to know how to swim. They have life vests for non-swimmers. You only need to swim from the boat to the float boards and they will take you out to them. there were children and several non-swimmers in our group. They have handholds on the board and put swimming noodles under your ankles. You literally just hang on the board and float face down with a mask and a snorkel. The boards have bright lights which shine down and attract the micro plankton that the rays feed on. We had 6-7 rays with us the whole time. They are absolutely beautiful and graceful under the water and will come to within inches of you. Be forewarned, you are absolutely not allowed to touch. One of our highlights of the trip.
