This was a fantastic evening. It was nothing short of spectacular seeing the manta rays so close up and watching them do their somersaults. It was cold in the water but well worth getting cold for. Good video footage is taken by the onboard photographer. Definitely take warm clothes for afterwards but they provide warm soup and hot chocolate so all in all it was a super fantastic night.

Amazing experience!! There were only a couple of rays in the area, but one of them spent the whole time feeding right under us - coming within 6" of my face mask on several occasions. The only frustrating part of the trip were the other idiots in the water who refused to listen to simple instructions from the guide - such as "don't touch the rays" and "stop swimming around." This is overall a great experience and I highly recommend!!

Sadly, no manta rays showed up on the night we snorkeled, but then, they are wild animals with a schedule of their own. We were given a voucher to try again the next night at no charge, but we were not able to take advantage of the offer since we had another tour scheduled. In spite of the lack of mantas, we still enjoyed our time.

These sea creatures are "other worldly".... simply beautiful :) The night time experience was one that I felt will be burned in my memory for the rest of my life.

Easily THE most incredible thing i've ever done. We were lucky enough to get one of the best shows of the year, 5 large manta's (there are apparently normal only about 2) all putting on a show just inches from our face. This is so magical and peaceful, I would do it again in a heartbeat. what beautiful, majestic creatures.

Seeing the Manta Ray's was incredible! The captain and his crew were great too! My only complaint is that I would advise the company in charge of this to not allow individuals to bring their own equipment and to let them swim on their own/wherever they want. We had two people who did just this and kept pulling on the float system at the end where I was located. This jostled me so much that it had a negative effect on my experience. They would swim around the float where everyone was holding on and do their own thing which was very disruptive! Other wise, the experience was truly wonderful.

This was the best thing I have ever done. The Manta's were in your face they opened there Month and you could see every breath they make. It was so awesome. I recommend this trip. I can't wait to go back and do it again. If you go to Kona you have to try it.
