While we only saw one manta, she did come up close, which was an amazing experience.


Swimming with Manta Rays has been on my bucket list for a very long time. Seeing these beautiful creatures swimming next to you wa...s absolutely unreal! As you can only spot Manta Rays at night we went for a short boat trip first where we watched the sunset, enjoyed the weather and had a few drinks. Our captain was a great guy who showed us something I couldn’t believe existed – a green flash right before the sun disappears below the horizon – thought it was a myth! Crew did everything they could to make us feel comfortable and to enhance our experience throughout the entire trip. Manta Rays were swimming right next to us and I managed to get a perfect footage on my GoPro camera which I am going to use for my video. This experience is a must do if you are visiting Big Island – this was definitely a highlight of my trip to Hawaii! more


You can't help mother nature -- we only saw one manta ray during our tour and the water was really choppy. The captain and c...rew were friendly, but had us wait for some other people that didn't show. I also don't feel they connected with us as a group, which was unfortunate. more
