Manta Snorkel Adventure

    What to Expect

    Board our vessel just in time to watch the sun set into the Pacific Ocean as we cruise to the mouth of Keauhou Bay to swim with and view the manta rays. Imagine. Floating in a dark ocean near the water’s surface as you hold on to our flotation device outfitted with lights when giant prehistoric, creatures with wingspans over 12’, glide silently and effortlessly into view from out of the inky dark boundaries of light. As they feed, the manta ray will swim while doing somersaults (barrel rolls) and turning gracefully in the beams of piercing light giving you the most unforgettable snorkel adventure EVER!
