Everything about this trip was awesome. They took us out to a great spot. Watched the sunset. They were very clearly aiming to give us the best possible experience. We say seven mantas while we were out there, closest one was just a foot or so away, doing barrel rolls under us. Then they took us out to see the stars.

This was an amazing experience. Our whole family went, and a couple of us stayed in the boat while the others did the actual snorkeling. The currents were not just right, so at first there were no rays, but our crew made sure that we followed the current and saw the rays. I would definitely recommend this to anybody when visiting Kona. Great trip!

Awesome crew, they explained everything clearly, beautiful sunset, we saw several Manta Rays. The only thing that I would have like different is entry into the water. Everyone got in and I felt like I was fighting for room on the light board and got kicked several time by other people when trying g to find a spot. Maybe a little more coordination would be better when there is a full boat.

It was good chance to see such a big fish vividly. Kind and professional staff helped understand it and enjoy it . Very good!

This turned out to be the highlight of our vacation. We were lucky to see a group of manta rays. They were so close and actually contacted us several times. It was unbelievable. The crew was really nice and made our experience thrilling and relaxing. Absolutely love it!

My husband and I were so impressed by this tour! The manta rays are so beautiful and graceful as they are looping in front of you! At first we were apprehensive if we would even see manta rays, but within a few minutes we had three feeding inches from us. The crew was helpful and knowledgeable and provided plenty of snacks. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique adventure!

I will give this 5 STARS because the experience is unbelievable. Jacob the captains skipper was fantastic. The captain however was a
and . There are definitely better companies. Our captain was late and admitted to forgetting about us. We got our briefing from another company that was passing out fresh fruit and had a whole picture presentation on what we would be seeing. None of the other boats had super young kids on their excursions which should say something about him. We had two children under the age of 4. It IS NOT for young children. I have 5 kids so I love children but NOT appropriate. It is extremely dark out thereminus the LED lights. Plus the Mantas are feeding right beside you. It should not have surprised the parents their kids were screaming.

Simon is an amazing ship's captain. The Manta Rays were magnificent to see and the guides ensured we were prepared for maximum enjoyment. For others traveling with children, esp on cloudy or rainy days, recommend bringing a change of clothes with a jacket after the dive. Great guide and Captain who were focused on everyone getting the most out of the experience.
