This was a last minute birthday surprise for my husband from the family. We were delighted with the shoreline cruise and informative highlights of old Kona days. We stopped several times to take a closer look and explore our coast from the outside. Watched a glorious sunset and then stopped to fill Keahou Bay with blue light for a manta watch. We were invited to hop in and see the manta up close. It was a thrilling way to end our excursion. They made sure we had a day to remember. We highly recommend this company of friendly and accommodating folks. Loved it.

Our group of 3 people had an incredible experience with Kona Ocean Adventures. We are Oahu residents and flew to Big Island to do the Manta Ray night dive. Because of Covid and the quarantine, we were the only three people on the boat and essentially had a private charter. This was certainly an exception, but we really felt like the staff went all out. Our dive guide had all of our gear ready so we were able to simply slip it on and jump in. They also had great food spread for us while we watched the sunset. We also happened to have a very special Manta experience with over a dozen Mantas that night. It is truly one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.

I believe we were the second trip with Momi and Nick from Kona Ocean Adventures after the Covid restrictions on them were lifted. We had an amazing evening cruise where we witnessed an unbelievable sunset and spectacular show put on by two beautiful manta-rays. We were the only boat in the water, and, as always the Kona Ocean Adventures crew was second to none!
