My family loved this experience. We saw 1 manta, and she circled right under us most of the time. I appreciated that it was a very short boat ride from the harbor to the snorkel sight also.

Seeing these manta rays up close is just unbelievable. My eyes and brain were trying to tell me that I was watching a movie, not real life. My little granddaughter was afraid after a few minutes, so the guide took her back to the boat, but she could watch the rays from there as well. .

The three of us had a wonderful experience with Hawaii Island & Ocean Tours with the manta ray night snorkel. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Equipment was top-notch. Quick 5-minute boat ride out to the mantas, who put on a phenomenal show. The highlight of our vacation-an unforgettable experience! Thank you, HI&OT!

The captain was so knowledgeable, fun, and professional. He provided an amazing experience for just 3 of us. Instead of a boat full of people, this outfit provided a personalized experience. We swam with dolphins but I never felt like we were intruding on their habitat in a negative way. I would highly recommend this company!

What an amazing experience! Seeing the mantas this close was unreal. This is something we’ll never forget. And this company was great. While other companies had lots of people crammed on their boats, we had only six. The diver was friendly and knowledgeable. They provided wet suits, treats after and an experience that was not to be missed.
