The Beauty of the Majestic Manta Ray

While on your Hawaiian vacation don’t miss the Sea Paradise Manta Ray Tour.  This is truly a special and unique experience especially since the West Coast of the Big Island is one of the best locations to see the gentle and majestic manta rays.

The manta rays feed on the plankton under the lights of the rafts.  As they come to the surface for the plankton and dive down they create a beautiful ballet and an ecological connection between the surface of the water and the deeper sea.

The Big Island and the Kona Coast is the best place to see manta rays.  There are other locations where mantas live and can be seen, such as the Maldives or Indonesia but the most reliable place to see these giant creatures is on the West Coast of the Big Island where manta rays can be seen every day of the year.

Another incredible characteristic of the manta rays is their intelligence.  When you’re floating above them, you can experience them being aware that you’re there.  According to New Scientist Magazine manta rays can recognize themselves in a mirror.

Join the wonderful Sea Paradise crew for some ocean fun, and sail out on the Hoku Nui to Manta Ray Village for an experience you’ll never forget.
