The tour was incredible. The staff was especially friendly and informative. My 98 year old mother had a wonderful time.
The experience was amazing. The staff were great, informative and very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.
A 2 MINUTE BOAT RIDE...CREW WAS GOOD AND THE MANTAS WERE INCREDIBLE. A BIT TRICKY FINDING THE PLACE
Captain Kirk and his crew were very welcoming and friendly. The videographer not only offered the video for sale but also offered to send a 30 second snippet to our cellphones the next day. This allowed us to share the experience with our friends and family back home. Would recommend this tour to others.
Excellent experience, they came so close they actually touch you. Crew and Captain Kirk were excellent.
Saw two rays but more than enough. Great service, looked out for the youngsters. Would definitely do this tour again
This was one of our favourite things we did !
It was so much fun and the crew were very friendly and nice !!!
We had such an amazing experience with this tour!! An absolutely must see!!!! Couldn't be happier with the trip!
This was an awesome night!! There were 5 in our party, 2 snorkeled and 3 stayed on the boat. All of us had a great time. For the 2 in the water, they had an amazing experience. THe Manta Rays swam right under them and they were able to watch them feed. For the three on the boat, we saw the Manta Rays as well and the crew on the boat were great and very informative. Definitely a must do while on the Big Island.
Really surprised how many manta rays I saw up close. Such beautiful animals.
I went on this tour as a "ride along", meaning I didn't get in the water. I listened in on all of the briefing that everyone recieved before getting in the water and learned a great deal about manta rays. As everyone else got in the water I went up to the upper deck and starting taking pictures. I could actually see the manta rays as they approached the snorkelers and got some great pictures. Much to my surprise one of the manta rays swam to the back of the boat and began jumping out of the water giving me the opportunity for some of the best photos I could have possibly hoped for. This excursion was definitely worth the time and money.
The Manta Ray Night Snorkel was so fun! The fee included a wet suit, snorkel and mask. The captain and the crew were very helpful. We were "schooled" in how to hold on and what to do when the manta rays got close. What a life time experience. The captain new exactly where to take us as we saw a number of manta rays up close. It was an added benefit that a professional photographer was in the water taking photos. I would do this again!!!
Amazing experience - hadn't expected we would get so close to the rays. If you do not have transport - take the trolley ($2) to the Sheraton and take a taxi back ($25 approx to Kona)
