If you're looking for an awesome adventure, on an almost private boat with a great attentive crew, snorkeling above Manta Rays, then you MUST go on the Coral Reef Snorkel Adventure boat!
If you do one thing in Kona, then make sure it is the night snorkel with the manta rays with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures!! Justin and Catherine were fun, friendly, informative, and helpful.
