Manta Ray Night Snorkel Tour Overview

Our boat, KIBOUBoard our boat, KIBOU, and let us take you along the magnificent western shores of the Big Island of Hawaii to embark on an unforgettable aquatic journey to snorkel with giant oceanic manta rays!

Our local guide and crew will lead to enjoy breathtaking views of the most stunning sunsets as we cruise towards the best manta ray snorkeling site, commonly referred to as “Manta Ray Heaven.” Along the way, we will keep an eye out for dolphins and other wildlife that frequent the area, and whales in season from December to March. On a clear night, you can experience the magic of Hawaiian moonlight in our nighttime tour as we snorkel with manta rays under the stars!

Description of imageOnce we arrive at our snorkeling destination, your captain will put you in the best manta ray viewing position. The crew will assist you as you jump into the water and hang on to our large, exclusive viewing float equipped with a light to attract manta rays. The secret to the magic is that plankton are attracted to light and manta rays eat plankton!

Manta ray below our viewing floatEnjoy magical moments as manta rays curiously swim up to the float and dance together under the surface. You’ll have the chance to get up close and personal with these wild yet gentle and captivating manta rays in the water. All the equipment will be provided for your excursion, along with warm cocoa and a light snack on our way back to the harbor.

Book your adventure with us now and let us take you on a journey you’ll never forget! If you don’t see Manta Rays on this excursion, book again for another night free of charge!
