DISCOVER THE MAJESTIC MANTA RAYS OF THE KONA COAST.
After you board Hoku Nui, we coast to the world famous, Manta Ray Village. Manta rays are gentle giants of the sea, with many residing along the Kona Coast.
Harmless to humans, they are drawn to the spotlights that light up the night to eat plankton. These mesmerizing creatures sometimes gracefully glide within inches of amazed snorkelers.
Swimming with manta rays is often the highlight of visitors’ trips to Hawaii. Sea Paradise is an original manta ray tour expert in Hawaii, helping its guests get up close and personal with these majestic creatures since 1985.

Dress comfortably for your Hawaii snorkeling tour. Bring swimwear, towel, a cover-up, and a light jacket or sweater for after you’re out of the water. You may also bring an underwater camera – just make sure the flash is turned off. Note that we have limited space to stow gear and keep it dry.
