Experience one of the most unique activities on the Big Island.
Swimming with Manta Rays is something unique to the Big Island. After a short boat ride, you will arrive at the Manta site (depending on your departure location). Your Captain will give a brief talk about the Mantas and what to expect. Then you will enter the clear, illuminated water with your experienced crew who will escort you as you hold onto a custom “LED Light Board”. The lights on the board attract the plankton that the Mantas feed on. Floating comfortably on the surface, you watch this National Geographic performance of the spectacular Mantas happen on only inches below you. Snacks, drinks, wet suits, and snorkel gear are provided. Transportation not included for either tour.
