Snorkel over manta rays on this guided, half-day, snorkeling experience off the coast of Big Island. Take a short cruise to the snorkel site as the sun begins to set and pause to watch a spectacular sundown before jumping in to swim among massive manta rays in their natural setting. Back onboard, enjoy snacks, drinks, and use of the onboard washrooms. Round-trip transport and equipment included.

What to Expect

Arrive at the Honokohau Marina’s north side to meet your guide, choose your snorkel gear, and get a safety briefing. Next, it’s on to the boat for a 30-minute cruise up the Kona Coast toward the manta ray snorkel site. As the sun sets, find a comfortable spot onboard to watch the vibrant, sunset colors streak the sky as you bob on the waves. Before the sun goes down, gear up and jump into the water to snorkel over manta rays swimming below. Enjoy the warm sea and amazing underwater sights before getting back on the boat for complimentary refreshments as you return to the marina. All equipment included.
