Great way to see manta rays. We saw 6 that night. Felt safe and prepared. They also are focused on sustainable tourism. They took great care of us!

We booked this tour the day before we left, because it was the only tour place left that had vacancy. Once we got out there we saw some manta rays deeper down. Then all of the sudden this massive one came inches in front my...More

Absolutely incredible experience! Wonderful, local, family owned business with aloha spirit. Our family went on the 9:45pm tour. Mantas came up to us right away. I forgot to inform them that my husband doesn't swim, but LeAnn really spent time making everyone feel comfortable and...More

This night time-experience is a must. Professional, affordable and absolutely amazing. This tour is quite different in that it caters to very small groups, making it a much more personal experience all around. The actual boat trip is very short; about three to five minutes....More

Wonderful trip and the rays were incredibly close and huge. Crew was excellent and the boat trip was short.

Road side parking is available and also based upon the time of your tour at earlier times in the evening it's busier than later. If you are having trouble drive to our truck where we check in and ask for some help.
