we when for the snorkel and was desapointed that these creature did not want to see us that night.
your staff where very professional and rfriendly to us.
I feel bad because i did not provided some tip to them because of how even when on .
sorry for that.
I anm looking to return to Hawai next spring and looking forward to rebook for this event.
I understand that we depend on them to come and nothing can get them there other then themselves. but i am ready to try again to see these great creature.

This was a fantastic adventure. The staff were the best ever. I would highly recommend this Manta Ray Snorkel trip to everyone. Kids will love it. Adults will be awed at the experience. The soup and hot cocoa were very much appreciated and delicious. What a great time!

I have dived all over the world, and this was one of my best water experiences ever! 6 Manta Rays, it was unreal! I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone!

The collective gasp that was heard through our snorkles expressed the wonder we all felt as we saw the first ray appear beneath us. What hideously beautiful creatures they are. The hardest thing was not being allowed to touch them. They seemed to be tempting us to do just that. If you do nothing else on the island in the water -- make sure you see these sea friends!

This was simply astonishing. We had five manta rays swimming inches from us and they were the most beautiful, graceful and gentle creatures. The captain and crew were excellent and looked after us really well. Even if you have never snorkelled before I would still urge you to try this, as you only have to swim a few metres to a floating pontoon that you hang on to, to allow the mantas to swoop and dive underneath you. Exhilarating and humbling, a must-do trip!

This was a very well organised trip. The boat and staff were fab. Shame we only saw one ray and it was very brief moment, everyone got offerd a second chance to go for free wich is a nice gesture but no use to us as it was our last day on big island, that said I would definitely do this again.

To watch these gentle creatures do their ballet under me was too much. I will never forget this experience. Wonderful!

This was an experience of a lifetime and I would highly recommend it - the rays were so majestic and graceful. However I would recommend going with a different company. We were in the water with a number of other tour groups who had a much better set up and were a lot more organised - which meant that the other groups had a lot more time and visibility of the rays.

It was honestly the biggest trap that I've never known! When I arrived at the marina, I saw about 40 people wearing a wetsuit to do this tour. The snorkel took place just down the sherathon, you absolutely don't need a boat to go there, you can swim there! Arrive at the spot where you suppose to see mata ray, you are about two groups of fourty people in line in the water...and of course we saw no manta ray...45 minutes in the water at night for nothing...Of course we know that we were waiting for animals and they are free in the ocean but I ask myself a question: why this company has printed many vouchers which says "no manta rays, come another time"! of course you can't come another time because you are in holiday and for only one day here!! and of course there was no other discount available...
The worst was when that they left me waiting alone on the parking lot , and I was wearing only my swimsuit and a little towel during the time I was waiting to my friend picked me up.
For the price I paid, I think It was a big tourist trap!
