We had 6 very large Rays come by and we all had a great time in the water. The Captain and Crew were awesome and we had a good time going to and from the snorkel spot. Don't miss this!

This is a must-do when visiting Hawaii Island. Whenever your experience entirely depends on the appearance of a wild animal, you can’t be sure what you’re going to get. Well we got treated to SIX manta rays on our tour! Plus a huge sea turtle before the rays showed up. Captain Bill and Shawna work hard to get the best spot and the best experience for you. You don’t have to bring a thing, they provide wet suits, mask/snorkel, and snacks. They’re friendly and very knowledgeable about these amazing animals. And the boat is beautiful - no rips, tears, wear, or stains - it’s super new, super clean, and a great ride. To keep it that way, they hose the salt water off you - with delightfully WARM fresh water. Great way to end the dive.

Captain Dan and Manta Ray Adventures provided a top-notch, life-altering Manta Ray experience for me and my children. We were appropriately instructed on the safety of being on a boat in the ocean (not talked down to at all), and we felt very safe that Captain Dan was confident in his abilities and experienced to handle any situation. Fortunately for us, we had 8 Manta Rays visit us, and we had the best spot because we did arrive early to get the best mooring. Capt Dan was attentive, informative, and definitely aware of our safety and comfort throughout. A MUST if you are traveling to the Big Island. Mahalo - we will be back to experience this again and again with you!
