If it were just the fact of seeing mantas at night, I'd give it 5 stars. There were a few things though that made me knock it down a star and these are nit picky things. We were told to arrive at 3:15 and we did. They said they would be over at 3:30 to get us. They came over... More

Once we heard about a manta snorkel we knew that would be one of the main things we wanted to do on the Big Island. We were not disappointed. We found Big Island Divers through Google and their package resonated most with us - for the price and the reviews we read. We were not disappointed! The staff in the... More

Swimming with the manta rays is a once in a lifetime experience. Big Island Divers were professional, knowledgeable and fun. The manta rays are quite majestic when they feed, it's beautiful to watch. We were fortunate enough to see nine mantas during our trip. The return boat trip can be quite cold and wet, so bring a water proof jacket... More

Great diving conditions for the week in early February with whales and dolphins from the surface, mantas, octopus, eels, one tiger shark, not to mention all the usual fish suspects underneath. Mantas showed for one out of two manta dives--so thrilling!

Massive mantas mere inches from my mask! A true highlight of our big Island vacation. Everything was taken care of. Helpful crew. Incredibly dedicated to ensuring that we had a comfortable and memorable experience. If you are even remotely considering this, don't hesitate.

Nature offers no guarantees, but this trip delivered the best fiery sunset and a wonder snorkeling encounter with 7 Manta Rays. The crew was excellent and the presentation about the Manta Rays, conservation (green viewing) efforts and the history of view the Mantas was informative and entertaining. 100% recommendation for anyone comfortable in the water even if you have never...

Big Island Divers was amazing! They are professional, helpful, and most importantly fun. Our dive master Becka was very knowledgeable. And even though she does those dives all the time you could still see she thoroughly loves what she does. The Captain was very helpful plus he made us hot chocolate and that rocks! Thank you for an unforgettable experience... More
