From US$ 105.02
Swim among manta rays in a feeding frenzy during this unique nighttime activity in Kona. On this 1.5-hour tour, slip into the dark water with your snorkeling guides and watch the 'manta ray ballet' as the giants appear out of the darkness to feast on the abundant plankton. Let chills run down your spine as these gentle, docile creatures, which can weigh up to 1000 lbs (450kg) and measure 16 feet (5 meters) across, swim just an arm's reach away. Use of all snorkel gear, wetsuits and flotation devices is included.
What to Expect
Go home and tell your family and friends that you did something they’ll never believe- you participated in a feeding frenzy in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean in the darkness of night with creatures as large as 16 feet across and weighing 1000 lbs. The Travel Channel named this tour one of the 10 things you must do in your lifetime, and they would be correct. An amazing and unique experience that is may only be done at 3 places on the entire planet. Sea Quest’s check-in and point of departure are just minutes from the Island’s most successful and consistent manta ray viewing location. These graceful and glorious giants soar beneath you as you leisurely and safely view them from above, just feet from the boat and the mouth of Keauhou Bay. A nocturnal ballet you won’t soon forget.

The Night Manta Experience was fantastic from start to finish! Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and provided great insight into these amazing creatures. Hot chocolate and cookies at the end was the perfect touch!
