From US$105.02
Swim among manta rays in a feeding frenzy during this unique nighttime activity in Kona. On this 1.5-hour tour, slip into the dark water with your snorkeling guides and watch the 'manta ray ballet' as the giants appear out of the darkness to feast on the abundant plankton. Let chills run down your spine as these gentle, docile creatures, which can weigh up to 1000 lbs (450kg) and measure 16 feet (5 meters) across, swim just an arm's reach away. Use of all snorkel gear, wetsuits and flotation devices is included.
What to Expect
Go home and tell your family and friends that you did something they’ll never believe- you participated in a feeding frenzy in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean in the darkness of night with creatures as large as 16 feet across and weighing 1000 lbs. The Travel Channel named this tour one of the 10 things you must do in your lifetime, and they would be correct. An amazing and unique experience that is may only be done at 3 places on the entire planet. Sea Quest’s check-in and point of departure are just minutes from the Island’s most successful and consistent manta ray viewing location. These graceful and glorious giants soar beneath you as you leisurely and safely view them from above, just feet from the boat and the mouth of Keauhou Bay. A nocturnal ballet you won’t soon forget.

Great Experience!

We very much enjoyed the Night Manta Experience. The crew made sure that everyone was comfortable in the water and gave each person the help that he/she needed to have a wonderful time. The whole evening was awesome! It is definitely a "must do!"

Manta Ray Night Snorkel

We did the Manta Ray night Snorkel and it was by far the most amazing thing we have done. We were able to see up to 4 Manta Ray's coming up basically almost grazing us. They are such majestic creatures, it was a little scary...More

Amazing Experience

I was quite sure what to expect for the night snorkel and was with someone that was a little nervous about the experience. John and his team made it a breeze! Wetsuits and snorkels were provided and it took about 5-10 minutes to get out...More

Awesome experience!

These guys are awesome. They fit you with a wetsuit so you’re warm. After a short boat ride packed full of dad jokes you get to enjoy 45 minutes of manta rays. Our guide Jon got us some great views of a number of different...More

Great Trip - Very Well Run

Enjoyed a great evening on this trip - they put boards in the water which shine light downwards which attracts the plankton and in turn the manta rays. You hold on to the boards to watch the manta rays below. We were in the water...More
