Being this close to Manta Rays is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and The Kona Coast is perhaps the best place on earth to do it. These gentle giants are among the most elegant creatures in all of nature, and we can take you to a spot where they gather to feed in the early evening. It's just offshore, only 30 feet deep and well-lighted both above and below the water with plenty of divers around.
This is a must-do Kona activity, whether you choose to scuba dive or snorkel. No experience is necessary to snorkel, and all ages are welcome! We make it easy. We provide gear as needed, including lights, and you'll have a private swim guide/dive master in the ocean with you at all times.!

We Loved It! / 5 of 5 stars
These guys are awesome! There are many companies that do this but this company was the most highly recommended. My wife was really scared because she had never really done anything in the ocean… but Mat made sure that she was doing ok at all times and helped her feel comfortable. Seeing the mantas up close really is spectacular and a must do on the big island. …Our tour had only a few of us compared to the others that were jam packed… We will use this company again anytime we are in Hawaii.
Unreal Manta Snorkel and Dolphin Swim! / 5 of 5 stars
My husband and I went out with Kona Ocean Adventures twice this week. Monday night we did the Manta trip - which was awesome and everything people say it is - and a really fun trip thanks to our captain, Josh, and guide, Momi. They both have a lot of local knowledge and you can tell they love what they do. It was way more like going out on a private boat with friends than it was a run of the mill, tourist trap kind of experience where you can be treated a bit like a number.
Manta ray night dive / 5 of 5 stars
Had a wonderful time swimming with the manta rays at night! Saw lots of manta rays upclose. The crew of Joy,Andy and Matt were great. Always there when needed, very knowledgable and made it loads of fun!!!. My husband did the dive while my two kids and I snorkeled. They where very accommodating to our needs.. Felt very safe with captain Andy and loved his music! Joy had us laughing the whole time. Also loved how they respected the Manta rays and their environment! Great company to go with.. We had an Amazing time!
So many friends began as our customers... It's what we love the most about what we do!
