Amazing experience! The...

Amazing experience! The crew was fantastic and informative. So many manta rays and they got so close!
Well worth it!
, Oct 2021
Awesome experience! We were not going to get in the water but it is WELL worth it! It's about a 5 minute boat ride out to the manatas and there are a lot of people out with you (feels safer). What an experience! We had about 6 barrel rolling mantas under us, next to us and right to us. It was so cool! The water is not cold, the guides are wonderful (we had Jen and Jas (sp?) with Kai (sp?) Driving). Not for young kids and swimming is a must!
An absolute must do on the Big Island!

This was an incredible experience! Our water guides Connor and Jake were great at finding the perfect spot. Bethany was knowledgeable and so helpful! Captain Shelly was awesome. We had an amazing night and mantas were coming so close up to our group. Would definitely do this again!!

Only a relative few humans will ever get the opportunity to experience the majestic manta rays doing barrel rolls right beneath you as they feed on plankton at night. This smaller group tour was ideal and was expertly executed by the team in a safe manner for man and nature.
A must in Hawaii!

Awesome must do

This is a must do,. I had my grand kid who can barely swim, snorkleing for 45 min . Well worth the money
A Kona must!
, Sep 2021
This was an unforgettable experience! If you are in Kona, you have to do this. Our water guides Connor and Bethany were very attentive to us in the water and made sure we all felt safe and could have the best experience possible. Captain Shelly was clear in his instructions. We had an awesome night for it and saw 8 different mantas all at the same time. They really do come right up to you in the water. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
Great experience

Highly recommend! Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. Helped the little ones on board and made sure they were safe and enjoying themselves.

We went on the 6:30 tour, watched a beautiful sunset, took a quick ride to where we went snorkeling. It was so amazing! The manta rays swam under us and did belly rolls. We saw up close many manta rays. We felt safe, it was easy holding onto the board with the lights. The crew and captain were knowledgeable. The water is a little cool at night so the 40 minutes in the water is the right amount of time so not to get too chilled. I will definitely do this again whenever I visit the big island.
