MANTA RAY SNORKEL TOUR
DISCOVER THE MAJESTIC MANTA RAYS OF THE KONA COAST.
After you board the Hoku Nui, Sea Paradise’s spacious 50 foot catamaran, you will travel to the World Famous Manta Ray Village off the Kona Coast. Going on a manta ray night snorkel in Hawaii is an amazing and unforgettable experience. The Travel Channel says, “It’s one of the top ten things to do in your lifetime.”
IN THE WATER
Once you reach Manta Ray Village, our friendly crew will provide you with an informative briefing about manta rays.
For our snorkeling guests, after dark our crew will guide you onto our state-of-the-art “manta floatation device.” You’ll watch in amazement as these majestic manta rays glide and loop, feeding on microscopic plankton attracted to the light sources attached to the float. Snorkel time is approximately 45 minutes.
Enjoy light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages after your snorkel tour.
Don’t want to snorkel? That’s okay too. For our ride-along guests, you can watch the majestic manta rays from the comfort of our 50 foot catamaran
