I'm thinking about booking a last minute trip to the big island this month. The main reason I'm going there is to do the night snorkel with the Manta Rays.
1. Where on the big island are the Manta Rays? I'm trying to figure out which hotel/city I should stay at. I might use a timeshare and if I do, my two choices are in Kailua-Kona and Pualu'u. If those are too far away, I'll opt not to use my timeshare.
2. Are the manta rays there in March? Is there a better time of year to see them?
3. Did the recent tsunami affect the manta rays?
