You don't need to be a good swimmer for this. You just hold the handle and float over the mantas. You can't be closer to them then here

I’m so happy how this all turned out. My daughter and her BF are there on a vacation. I surprised them by buying them this experience. She can’t stop talking about how beautiful it was and so much fun. She mentioned how amazing staff was and at the end the hot shower. Thank you again to all staff

No COVID precautions at all

I would have given 5 stars if they had attempted to take COVID precautions. No one on the crew wore a mask, most patrons didn't wear a mask, masks were never mentioned in any safety briefings, there was NO social distancing at all on a packed boat, and the crew and customers were less than 2 feet from us many many times. The crew was very nice and the experience with mantas was wonderful. But where is the aloha and community spirit if we aren't protecting each other during a pandemic?

Choppy waters but sightings were phenomenal
Sco

Very nice crew but horrible directions. We followed those provided, but were very confusing. We made it in the end! The actual manta ray part was awesome - though the waves were quite rough our night. Would’ve been helpful to give us each a noodle when we got in, as the waiting was exhausting fighting the waves. Again, great excursion just better directions and a few tweaks would make it 6 stars!!

Mesmerizing Experience!

A mesmerizing experience! I had no idea that this type of night time manta snorkel can only be found on the big island. A lot of animal tours are all hype but this one surpasses expectations. The special LED light boards attract plankton and tons of gorgeous mantas soon after. The boat ride under the stars was fantastic (longer than you may expect) and the water was surprisingly warm for February. Simon, Jacob, and Kelly were great and humorous guides. Just make sure you know how to use your snorkel properly and bring a go pro if you have one!
