Trip Features: The Hokuhele sets sail from Keauhou Bay (sailing times differ according to sunset). Enjoy a beautiful Hawaiian sunset as we sail from Keauhou Bay into the setting sun, have your camera ready for the elusive green flash. After the sunset, we drop sail and head for the world famous Manta Ray Village. Travel Channel says "its one of the top ten things to do in your life time", and Sea Paradise has been offering its guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with these majestic manta rays since 1985, making Sea Paradise an original tour expert in Hawaii.

In the water: At the site our expert staff will provide a knowledgeable and professional briefing as they prepare you to enter the water. After the briefing our staff guides you onto our state of the art "manta flotation device". Here you will float effortlessly above the manta rays as they feed on the microscopic plankton. Plankton rises from the bottom of the ocean at night and is attracted to the light source attached to the float. As your incredible snorkel experience comes to and end our staff guides you back onboard where snacks and hot cocoa wait. Snorkel time is approximately 1 hour.

On the menu: Light snacks, juice, water, soft drinks and hot cocoa.
