Snorkeling with Manta Rays on the Big Island of Hawaii

Snorkeling with manta rays on the Big Island of Hawaii offers a peek at one of nature’s great ocean creatures. Swimming alongside a fully grown manta is akin to flying with a massive, underwater bird, and here are the best way to experience it on a manta ray snorkeling tour. 

  • Swim alongside rays with wingspans of up to 16 feet (five meters).
  • Watch a Hawaiian sunset before hopping in the water for an unforgettable swim.
  • Experience Hawaii’s underwater world and marine life at night, when mantas come to feed on plankton that accumulates just off the Kona coast.
  • Learn about manta rays, their habits, and the environment in which they live.
  • Combine your manta ray night snorkel with a sunset cruise on Keauhou Bay or a guided kayaking tour.
