Sunset Manta Ray Snorkel


Initially, the Manta Rays were enjoyed only by divers, but within the last few years it has transformed into a Manta Ray Snorkel activity to be enjoyed by all ages. Now, more people snorkel (than scuba dive) with the exotic Kona Manta Rays. Even the most seasoned traveler often comments that the Kona Manta Ray Experience is the "most amazing thing I've ever done!" Although staged and conducted at night, powerful lights are used to attract Manta Rays and these lights illuminate the area so much, that you forget that it is after dark in the warm, tropical waters of the Pacific Ocean.
 
Manta Rays in Hawaii have been Kona's most unique attraction to travelers since they were "discovered" in the early 90's. The near shore waters of Kona, Hawaii are home to one of the most robust and accessible populations of Manta Rays in the world. While Manta Rays are found in most oceans, their regular appearances to feed at night in Kona, Hawaii is unique in the world. Snorkel with these magnificent giants as they feast on microscopic plankton!

Your entire 2.5-hour tour with Big Island Executive Tours will consist of:


Enjoying a sunset ride on a catamaran
Experience the beautiful "Garden Eel Cove" or "Manta Ray Village"
Hear everything you want to know about these majestic marine mammals that your expert guide will provide you with

What do I need to bring to manta ray night snorkel?
Please come wearing your swimsuit and bring a change of clothes to have something warm for after your Manta snorkel. We recommend a long sleeve jacket or sweatshirt. Also bring a beach towel, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and any motion sickness medicine you require (It is most effective to take the pill before scheduled activity).
Are there any age or fitness requirements?
Our Manta Ray snorkel is restricted to guests with at least 7 years of age. The physical output is low- similar to walking/hiking- so you don't have to be an athlete to participate, but you should be of moderate fitness with no major mobility constraints.
Can my child under 7 come along with us on the boat?
Your young child is welcome to come with us on the boat. However, for safety reasons, we require an adult from your group to stay with them on the boat. If you are bringing a young child, they will have to pay for a standard ticket.

Will there be a guide swimming with us?
Yes. Each trip includes a guide who also has CPR & First Aid training. Our guides are ocean enthusiasts and share their love of the area on each trip.
Why do the Manta Rays get so close to us?
We have lights that attract the food that Manta Rays feed on. Therefore, the Mantas typically come right up to where their food is. We have had Manta Rays get to within inches of us, it is truly a surreal experience.
Does the boat have easy on and off access?
Yes, our boat is designed for all ages and sizes.
Do I need to know how to swim?
You will need to be comfortable in an ocean environment. If you are fearful of the water, this might not be a good choice for you. All our guests are asked to wear USCG approved life vests both while paddling and snorkeling.

You are welcome to stay in the boat during the snorkeling portion of the tour if you'd like. There is no reduced rate for those who do not wish to snorkel though.

A 15-25% gratuity is customary for this activity and much appreciated by hardworking guides. There are no other incidental expenses.
