I am so happy I chose to do the night manta ray snorkel tour!! If staying at the Sheraton Kona Resort and Spa at Keauhou Bay this is a must do!! The boat picks up right around the corner from the resort and takes you right to the water in front of the resort, super easy to find!

Booked through the Kona Sheraton. A truly amazing experience. Highly recommend. Preston and Tanner were phenomenal guides. Really nice to have a personal experience and getting up close with these gentle giants.
