Join us for an incredible encounter with the Kona Manta Rays. This world famous dive/snorkel trip has been featured on numerous Travel, National Geographic and Discovery Channel programs. The Hawaiian Kona Coast is home to over 200 resident Manta Rays and each has been identified and named. Much like a fingerprint is unique to each human, Manta Rays have distinguishing black and white markings on their underside that are used to identify them nightly. These gentle giants can grow up to 20 feet in length and weigh up to 3,000 pounds, but they have nothing that bites or stings, making this the safest large animal encounter in the world. Groups of Manta Rays converge nightly off of Keahole Bay to feed on the smorgasbord of phyto plankton that appear to soak up the glow given off by underwater dive lights. Enjoy a scenic sunset boat ride along the Kona coast to the manta location. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will instruct you on how to encounter these amazing creatures so we can protect the mantas and their habitat. In a water depth of about 25-30 feet, both snorkelers and certified SCUBA divers are able to safely view the incredible performance by the manta rays. Mantas "Delaney," "Koie," "Blain," "Big Bertha," "Darth Ray-dar" and more put on a show for you.

Holly Boyko
Great service but did not see any manta rays.



Annette De Carle
We had a great time the staff are extremely helpful & made our adventure a memorable experience



Jason Karuza
The crew was very friendly and accommodating. Waters are pretty cold in December; even with wetsuits. Chips and cookies, hot chocolate, sodas and water on the boat. Jeff the dive-master was great for my dive. Only semi-negatives are 1) 30 minute boat ride to the dive location when there is a dock right at the location, and 2) manta rays may not actually be in abundance. We got to see some at the very end of the dive. There are two rounds of tours. Go with the later round to have the best odds.
