Snorkeling with Manta Rays at night is a magical experience. No Snorkeling Experience is Required! Hawaii Oceanic will give you a premium vantage position to experience the Manta Magic on the Kona Coast, accompanied by a swim guide with you in the water. The light board in the water attracts the plankton, which in turn attract the Manta rays. And, then... the magical experience begins. The Manta rays have learned that the light boards in the water mean food, and the Manta rays will swoop within inches of your face as you lay flat a the sea surface. You will enjoy the Manta ray ballet in the water below you for up to an hour as the Manta rays enjoy their plankton buffet. Another fascinating behavior is the "barrel roll" a lazy cart-wheel just below the light board. After your Manta Magic experience, the Pueo Kai will head back to harbor under the light of the stars and the moon. Be sure to gaze upward, as you may glimpse the Milky Way on a clear night. Manta Ray sightings are a 95% success rate.
