We Guarantee Manta Rays or come again free! Hawaii is considered the #1 place in the world to view Mantas. The Manta Rays here have become conditioned where to go each night to find an easy meal; feeding on the plankton that is attracted by our underwater lights...which makes locating them easy for us! With wing spans that can reach over 20 feet across, manta rays are the main focus of this tour. Remember Manta Rays have no barb stinger on the tail or teeth. They are graceful gentle giants. You will also see common reef fish and eels.
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.
The Manta Ray night snorkel on the coast of Hawaii is the only place in the world that has resident Manta Rays that consistently come to feed at the same locations throughout the year. Hawaii Manta Rays have a wingspan of 4-16 feet across and can weigh up to 1000 pounds. Unlike other rays, Mantas have no teeth, stinger or barbs, so they are completely safe to be around. They are filter feeders, with plankton as their only source of food. Lights are placed in the water, which attract the plankton, which then attracts the Mantas. Along the west coast over 250 Manta Rays have been identified since 1979. The sight of these gentle giants is breathtaking and the experience of swimming with these large, peaceful creatures is exhilarating.
