Keauhou Bay – “The New Era”

Two manta rays

Keauhou Bay is in front of the Outrigger Hotel and Spa in North Kona and a popular spot to view manta rays.  The name translated from Hawaiian means “The New Era” and was a popular retreat for Hawaiian Royalty.  Hop on the Hoku Nui and sail out to Manta Ray Village in Keauhou Bay to view the incredibly graceful and majestic manta rays.  Manta Rays are in the shark family along with Sting Rays but are harmless to humans.  Sea Paradise is one of the original manta ray tours in Hawaii and many who join us on this tour comment that the experience was a highlight of their time on the island.
