Manta Ray Snorkel Tour in Kailua-Kona, HI
- Adult Snorkeler
- Child Manta
- Certified Scuba Diver
Snorkeling this close to Manta Rays is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Listed as one of the top ten dive sites in the world according to National Geographic, the Kona Coast of Hawaii is perhaps the best place on earth to do this amazing activity. Manta Rays are gentle giants and among the most elegant creatures in all of nature. We will take you to a spot where they gather to feed in the evening. Our lights attract the plankton, and in turn the Manta Rays as they feed on these microscopic organisms. Sounds exciting? That’s because it truly is. Manta Rays are completely harmless.
We will be floating on the surface as a group on our custom built board with spotlights pointing down on these creatures swimming below. Watch as these beautiful creatures glide beneath you, performing somersaults and spins. For our certified scuba divers, you will be kneeling on the sand bed below as the manta rays dance above and around you.
Sunset Manta Snorkel :
Our boat will take off just before the sun sets. Watch the horizon glow as the sun seems to sink into the water.
Manta Moonlight Snorkel :
Kona Ocean Adventures is only one of a handful of companies that offer a late manta ray swim in Kona. Our boat will take you out over the dark water while the moon peaks over the Hualalai mountain range, lighting our path to the manta site!
All tours check in at the Honokohau small boat harbor.
