The Sea Wolf is a zodiac-style boat (bench seating, open air) that is fast and fun, getting you quickly to the cove where the manta rays come out and providing a beautiful sunset view along the way... with the splashes and wind whipped hair to be expected from a trip on a smaller boat. This is like riding in a convertible, not a luxury sedan. Once in the water, you are provided with a life vest that you can inflate to your preferred level of buoyancy, as well as snorkel gear and fins. Then you hold on to a floating board fitted with downward-facing lights which attracts plankton, which attracts the manta rays. There were many other boats in the manta ray area, and many other snorkelers/divers, but that actually increased the excitement of seeing these amazing rays swoop right up to you and do somersalts in the water. The captain and crewmember were fun and engaging - they gave great advice e.g. telling us which restaurants in Kona/Kohala Coast were still open when we got back to the dock (things close early in the area). This trip was one of the most memorable things I've ever done on the Big Island.
