We snorkeled with the manta rays on 2/21/17 and it was such an amazing experience. Our guide in the water, Alex, was very knowledgeable and friendly. She stressed the importance of not touching the manta's, which I hope the other tour guides are doing as well. There were only five of us on board the beautiful trimaran as we headed... More

What a great trip we had with Sea Paradise! From the phone conversation with Jamie to the trip with Tony and Sam everything proceeded seamlessly. Having only snorkeled once before, the crew helped me gain confidence even in the deep waters of the bay. We saw lots of beautiful fish and really enjoyed the ride on the boat to and... More

We live in Kona and to be honest, we won this trip. However, we were very pleased with the organization, the trip in general and the staff. We loved the fact that we were taken to Kealakekua Bay early, before the swarm of boats arrived. We had about 45 minutes in the water without many other snorkelers. They had fresh... More

This is the second trip my husband and I have taken with Sea Paradise (the first was the night time Manta snorkel). Both trips were excellent. Dom and Troy took care of us. We had a great sail to Captain Cook and the snorkeling was amazing. Dom and Troy were excellent. They were full of information and they both made... More

We did the "moonlight manta ray snorkel" on 1/29/17. It was quick and easy to book over the phone or online. This is the shortest of the tours, kinda wham bam! But I wanted it that way since I tend to get seasick. It was a super short ride after dark to the snorkeling spot (less than 10 minutes). You... More

The afternoon tour is great because it is the only boat in Kealakekua Bay at that time of day! No crowds on the boat or in the water. Captain Dom and Crew Peter were lovely, fun, and kept us all safe.

Hubby and I recently took a trip to Hawaii and decided to do a night time snorkel tour with Sea Paradise to see the Manta Rays. At first it sounded kind of scary, I mean, night time, in the ocean.... but then we read on and found out that you are holding on to a metal bar of sorts that... More
