Owner description: Sea Paradise offers Morning and Afternoon Sailing & Snorkeling Tours to the Marine Sanctuary in Kealakekua Bay (Home to the World Famous Captain Cook Monument). As your snorkel adventure begins, be sure to bring an underwater camera to capture all the vibrantly colorful schools of sea life amid the landscaped ledges of ancient lava flows. Also offered by Sea Paradise is a Guaranteed Manta Ray night snorkel. Capture the graceful beauty of these majestic manta rays as you snorkel up close with them. The Travel Channel say "snorkeling with manta rays is one of the top ten things to do in your lifetime."

“Night manta snorkel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014

This was the highlight of my trip. Crew was very friendly and I will definitely choose them again. Schedule the snorkel trip early because if you don't see manta they will provide an opportunity go another evening.

“Family friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Family friendly tour operator who didn't pack us on board like sardines. Kealakekua Bay was crystal clear with heaps of tropical fish. Kids loved it!! Whole trip was three hours (afternoon).... Just long enough. Saw dolphins on the way home.

“Fun morning snorkel trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

We really enjoyed our morning snorkel trip. The crew was friendly, we saw whales and dolphins, and the snorkeling was pretty good too. The best part about our trip was the boat wasn't packed like some others. Very relaxing.

“Great Manta Ray Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

This was a great experience. The manta rays get really close, making it easy to get a wonderful view of these magnificent beings. Crew was informative, and made everyone feel welcome. Much less of a 'restrictive' bunch than most of the cruise companies.

“Night Manta Ray Snorkel!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

YES!! you can snorkel at night with manta rays!!!
We took our 7and 8 year olds on this experience and OMG!!! AWESOME!!! You go out in a catamaran then they use super powerful lights to attract the plankton and within minutes the manta rays show up for their dinner. Then we spent the next 1 1/2 hrs. floating above them with our snorkels watching them do acrobatics, way too cool!! The manta rays come right up to the surface, right where you are!! an inch away! What a view!
They are HUGE!!!
