  • Chevron down 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 nearshore waters of Kona, Hawaii are home to one of the most robust and accessible populations of Manta Rays in the world. While Manta Rays, 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!
