A Night Manta Experience in a Hawaiian Double Hull Canoe is a way to experience these majestic animals and avoid the large groups on a bigger boat. We offer 2 tours per night, and times vary throughout the year based on the time of the sunset (around 6 or 8 pm). A very short paddle gets you out to the site, and being on a canoe affords us the flexibility of positioning ourselves right where the Mantas are. We keep our guests safe and provide the best viewing experience out there. The light set up is right between the hulls of the canoe, allowing the flexibility of getting in and out of the water at your convenience, as well as the best and safest view of the Mantas. And for anyone who doesn't want to, or can't get in the water, we are the only company that truly offers a view from the seat of your canoe. You don't even have to get wet!! The choice is yours

Highly recommended!!! We started out in a double canoe with 6 participants and 2 guides. Think Hawaiian type canoe. We paddled about 200 yards out into the bay while being entertained with the history of this area and learning about the mantas we were about to see. As the sun dropped, the blue lights came on to attract the plankton which in turn attract the mantas for dinner. With a torso wet suit to help keep us warm and "floaties" on our ankles to help us float motionless, we were soon treated to two mantas who came to feed and entertain. We had been told mantas are smart and curious, and with my wife humming the entire time, the mantas stuck around coming what seemed like inches from us. A true wonder. When we finally got out of the water, we realized there were over a dozen boats/tours around us. And we got the show!!! Anelakai is a unique experience in true Hawaiian style. The small group and canoe adventure was one of the best experiences we had on the Big Island.
