Neptune Charlies

The Kona dive shop, Manta Ray Dives of Hawaii which is also referred to as Neptune Charlies, offers all sorts of diving tours but none more popular than its 'signature dive' which is a night manta ray dive. Manta Rays are often referred to as the "gentle giants" of Kona. Manta Ray Dives of Hawaii has been featured in many publications because of their unique and selective dive trips to see these magnificent sea animals. Manta rays have no teeth, and look pretty scary with a wingspan in some cases up to fifteen feet. National Geographic featured this company in their December 1995 issue with an article and incredible photographs taken on their Manta Ray Dive trips. One of the most popular trips that Manta Ray Dives of Hawaii offers is the Manta Ray Night Dive. Be sure to save a spot on your Kona visit to experience this one-of-a-kind trip. Of course Manta Ray Dives of Hawaii also offers dolphin and whale watches, a full host of diving and SCUBA options and snorkel trips, so there's going to be something for everyone.
