Manta Ray Night Snorkel

Kailua-Kona is one of the only places in the world where you can experience a Manta Ray Night Snorkel.

This is a must-do experience during your stay on the Big Island.

Our goal is to get you as close to the Mantas as possible while keeping you safe and comfortable.

Our professional guides help you get in the best possible viewing position to watch the Manta Rays dance around as you hang onto our custom-made light boards.

We know you want to spend as much time as possible snorkeling with the Manta Rays— not sitting on a long, cold boat ride.

Hawaii Island and Ocean Tours are conveniently located just five minutes from the snorkel site so you can get the most out of your tour.

If you don’t love boats or get motion sickness, our tour is perfect for you.

What do I bring?
All you need is your bathing suit and a towel. We provide you with a wetsuit, snorkel masks, and a pool noodle to stay afloat.

Can I bring my own snorkel gear?
Absolutely, but please no fins. You will be floating and don’t want to risk kicking the Mantas.

What if I have never snorkeled before?
If you have never snorkeled before we will teach you how. We will send a certified lifeguard to the location of your choice for a one-hour private lesson to walk you through the basics of breathing through a snorkel. You can fit up to 6 people in your group. You can add a private lesson to your tour when you check out.

How long is the boat ride and the tour?
The boat ride is less than 5 minutes from the dock. Spend the time you paid for in the water with the Mantas. Approximately 40 minutes in water.

Can I touch the Manta Rays?
Absolutely not. It is important to remember they are wild animals in their natural environment. We want to do everything possible to not disturb them and simply observe their majesty.

I have young children, are they able to join?
We welcome children ages 4 and up. We do ask that they are comfortable in the water floating for up to 40 minutes.

What if I can’t swim?
The boat is equipped with lifevests and we would be willing to get you in the water if you are comfortable floating.
