Manta Ray Night Snorkel - Ocean Encounters
Come out for a magical evening on the ocean. This tour departs in time so that you can be on the ocean for the sunset. Departure times may change with the seasons. As you motor out from Honokohau Harbor to the dive site, which is about 20-30 feet deep, your crew will go over some fun facts about manta rays and other specific information that you will need for your adventure. As the sun sets and darkness falls, the flashlights come on and the lit up ocean is electric green like the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz. The manta rays come close and perform somersaults underneath you while they eat the plankton that gets concentrated by the lights. Your tour includes all of the necessary gear for snorkeling with them. You should bring a towel, jacket or sweatshirt and some dry clothes. Since you'll be on a boat at night, it can get chilly when you're wet. Of course, don't forget to bring your camera.
