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.
Cruise the Kona Coast and enjoy a morning frolicking in the warm Hawaiian waters. Snorkel equipment is available for use and expert instruction makes the Kealakekua Bay Deluxe Snorkel Cruise a great activity for the whole family.
