Experience the thrill of night snorkeling with manta rays in Kona, a unique adventure acclaimed by the Travel Channel as a must-do life experience. Hosted by Sea Quest near the renowned Keauhou Bay, this tour immerses you in a world where manta rays with wingspans up to 16 feet glide gracefully beneath you, creating a breathtaking underwater ballet.

The magic unfolds as you float with a specialized light-emitting flotation device, attracting phytoplankton, the mantas’ food source. This spectacle illuminates the ocean’s depths, showcasing the mantas’ majestic dance. These gentle giants offer a mesmerizing and safe spectacle, unmatched in the marine world.

This experience goes beyond mere snorkeling; it’s fully equipped with all necessary gear, including wetsuits and prescription masks, and enhanced with warm treats like hot chocolate and cookies. While basic swimming and snorkeling skills are required for safety, the tour is accessible and awe-inspiring, perfect for those looking to delve into the wonders of the ocean in a serene, yet exhilarating way.

Q: Are Manta Rays Dangerous to Snorkel With?

A: The shortest and best answer is, no! Unlike their cousin, the Sting Ray, Manta Rays are gentle giants with no spear-tipped tails, or any threatening body part for that matter. The only thing that we emphasize to ensure the safety of our guests as well as our crew, is that you have prior swimming and snorkeling experience. While we won’t be doing a lot of active swimming once in the water– the basics of knowing how to breathe and maintain a calm while the mantas swim around us are important for their safety and ours.
