Manta Ray Night Snorkel from Kona

45 Reviews

  • Location: Kona, Hawaii
  • Duration: 90 minutes (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3226MANTA
The manta ray night snorkel was voted "one of the top 10 things to do in your life" by the Travel Channel! Experience the Kona manta ray snorkel yourself and see what all the fuss is about. You'll journey only five minutes off the Big Island's west coast to reach the snorkeling site. As the vessel's diving lights shine through the crystal-clear water, these gentle giants arrive to feed on plankton. Jump in the water for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to night snorkel with Hawaii's friendly manta rays.

Highlights

  • Snorkel gear included
  • Close encounter with wildlife
Although you are able to view mantas during daylight hours, they feed most actively at night when many plankton rises towards the water's surface. By using dive lights that are safe for the mantas, you'll be able to attract and get close to the mantas.

Unlike sting rays, mantas are very gentle and don't have teeth, stingers or barbs. These big and beautiful animals are truly amazing, boasting wingspans that can exceed 15 feet (4.5 meters) in width! They are completely safe to be around, so hop aboard for the aquatic experience of a lifetime!

This was an awesome night!! There were 5 in our party, 2 snorkeled and 3 stayed on the boat. All of us had a great time. For the 2 in the water, they had an amazing experience. THe Manta Rays swam right under them and they were able to watch them feed. For the three on the boat, we saw the Manta Rays as well and the crew on the boat were great and very informative. Definitely a must do while on the Big Island.
