Best Big Island Manta Ray Night Kayak and Snorkel Adventure
- All necessary equipment included
- Close encounter with wildlife
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
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.

AMAZING!!!! DO IT!!! HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP!!!
The mantas were SO BIG and graceful and strange. You'll absolutely love this experience.
You will meet the guides at the kayak shop and then drive your own car to the Sheraton Resort.
The guides transport the kayaks.
You can use your own snorkel gear if you have it.
Do some research about the mantas before you snorkel, as our guides didn't have any facts for us whatsoever. The guides were friendly and did a good job getting us set up though!
Leave all of your clothes/belongings in your car, as they'll get soaked if you bring them, and you don't need anything.
Go to the Sheraton before or after, as they have a beautiful restaurant and bar that overlooks the manta snorkel area and they have a really cool Manta Learning Center where you can learn about the animals.
SUCH AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! Worth every penny!!!!!!
