Swim alongside some of the most amazing creatures of the ocean on a nighttime snorkeling adventure in Kona! Explore the world of elegant manta rays on this 1.5-hour evening tour. When you check in, you will be provided with all kayaking and snorkeling equipment, instruction and safety orientation.
With your local guide, kayak along the Kona coast to the snorkeling spot of the night. Dive into the clear blue waters and enjoy the sight of these lovable manta rays swimming peacefully by you.
Manta rays feed most actively at night when plankton rises toward the water's surface. Your guide will use powerful diving lights to attract plankton and enable you to get close to the rays. As you will be in a kayak, you will have the freedom during your 45 minutes in the water to move to different snorkeling spots to look for manta rays.
When the tour is over, you will kayak back to the Keauhou Bay with your guide.
