Manta Ray Night Scuba Dive/Snorkel
2 reviews
"If you are taking the time to read these reviews then I know you are looking for the best possible experience for this once in a lifetime experience. I did lots of research before signing up with Torpedo Tours and was beyond satisfied with the whole experience. First of all, this company doesn’t take huge crowded boats out. The experience feels very personal. I found that the prices of most companies were about the same and trust me worth every penny. Most importantly, the crew cared a lot about what they do. They were unbelievably kind and made us feel very safe.You’d be lucky to experience this, whether diving or snorkeling, with such good people. Hope to be back."

Dolphin Swim

We invite you to experience the magic of swimming with dolphins in their natural habitat... this rare opportunity to swim and snorkel with the wild and free Hawaiian spinner dolphins can be life-changing. Kona is one of the rare places of the world where we have the calm, clear, and warm waters where we can enjoy the dolphins almost every day - year round!
Dolphin Boat Swim Excursion Information:
* You have a 98% chance of a dolphin encounter.
* Included are fresh fruit, pretzels, bottled water, sodas, chips, fresh sandwiches and cookies.
Mask, snorkel, and fins are provided at no extra charge.

This is the reviewer, not the business. I believe you can find a link to the website at the top of the listing. This site won't let me put the link in my response to you.
