We were so glad we picked Hawaii Oceanic for our Manta Magic experience. Chad and Dillon were professional and safety conscious but kept it light and entertaining. There's something pretty amazing about jumping into the ocean at night to watch huge rays circle below you,...More

What would you do if, while floating in the black ocean, a 9-foot manta ray came within 8 inches of your face? If you're me you giggle uncontrollably. No matter how you might react, this is an unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience. Our guides were high energy,...More
