Kailua Kona, Big Island, Hawaii
Our snorkel adventure is at night for the best viewing of the manta rays.
Although you can view manta rays during the daylight hours, they feed most actively at night when many plankton rise towards the surface providing one of the favorite foods on which mantas feed.
Using lights that are safe for the manta, we are able to attract these plankton which attracts the mantas.
Manta rays do not have stingers like the Sting Rays, mantas are completely safe to be around.
