This one and half hour tour starts with outfitting you with a mask, snorkel, and wetsuit top.  Your naturalist guides will ensure a proper fit and give you some snorkel instructions before we depart on our manta ray night snorkel on Big Island.


From there you’ll board our 28.5-foot Ridged Hull Inflatable Boat and take short voyage to “Manta Ray Village” to see manta rays in Hawaii.  Along the way the naturalist guides will tell you about the history of manta ray night snorkel on Big Island. Once we arrive to “Manta Ray Village”, you’ll enter the water with your in-water guide who will move you to the best manta night snorkel in Kona.

During this night time manta ray snorkel in Kona, we often see multiple manta rays during our manta ray night swim on Big Island.  Manta Rays will often swim within inches of your face as they “barrel roll” underneath our light boards. These huge, majestic animals will quickly become your favorite marine animal.

 (PLEASE NOTE: It is not possible to do “free snorkeling” during the tour because your snorkel and fins can hurt the manta rays. Furthermore, touching them can remove their protective skin coating which can leave them susceptible to infection. Manta rays may come as close as arm’s length during your viewing session; however, there is absolutely no touching allowed. Manta rays are not dangerous. They are gentle giants and will maneuver around you.
