Please meet us at Keauhou Harbor, 30 minutes prior to your time of departure. When you arrive at the harbor, we'll be parked near the boat dock. Look for a white van with lights on top. It can be difficult to find us in the dark, so please call if you don't immediately see us.

This activity will end right where it started.
Board your boat at Keauhou Harbor in the evening, allowing you to reach the manta snorkeling site just in time for sunset. You’ll get a short introduction to the feeding habits of these wondrous creatures from your on-board naturalist as you travel to the snorkel site.

Once you arrive, grab your snorkel gear and get ready to experience this one-of-a-kind natural phenomenon. Snorkeling is optional, so those who choose to remain on board are free to enjoy the sunset. Those who choose to snorkel will jump in the water and grab onto a ‘light board,’ which helps attract plankton to its glowing surface. A certified swim guide will be nearby to help in the unlikely event there are any issues..

Soon the mantas will begin their aquatic ballet, swooping and diving through the water as they feed on the plankton attracted to this site. When your snorkel time is up, head back to your original starting point. You’ll leave your trip with unforgettable memories of this unexpected natural phenomenon, plus complimentary photos of your experience.

Check in was very smooth, crew was very knowledgeable and friendly, Lexi, Brent and Justin were excellent and my 9 year old wanted to go in and out of ocean once and they were very accommodating…one advice carry cash if you want to tip them. We wanted to give tip but didn’t have any cash handy.

A great opportunity to see these big creatures up close. It is a very short swim to the place you will hang from. Then about 30 minutes, which seemed enough, to see the manta rays. They get so close that they sometimes touch you. The guide kept a running commentary.

This was a fantastic experience. Brent, Justin and Lexy are a wealth of knowledge about manta rays and did a great job making sure everyone felt comfortable and had fun. We saw 7 different mantas on our trip. It’s an unbelievable experience to see them swirling and swimming beneath you. They get very close! You won’t regret doing this!
