    What to Expect
    Board your boat at Honokohau Harbor in the late afternoon, allowing you to reach the manta snorkeling site just in time for sunset. You’ll get a short introduction to the feeding habits of these wondrous creatures from your on-board naturalist as you travel to the snorkel site.

    Once you arrive, grab your snorkel gear and get ready to experience this one-of-a-kind natural phenomenon. Snorkeling is optional, so those who choose to remain on board are free to enjoy the sunset. Those who choose to snorkel will jump in the water and grab onto a ‘light board,’ which helps attract plankton to its glowing surface. A certified Red Cross ocean lifeguard will be nearby to help in the unlikely event there are any issues.

    Soon the mantas will begin their aquatic ballet, swooping and diving through the water as they feed on the plankton attracted to this site. When your snorkel time is up, head back to your original starting point. You’ll leave your trip with unforgettable memories of this unexpected natural phenomenon, plus complimentary photos of your experience.

    This was a ton of fun. We loved the smaller boat and the freedom do do some swimming at the manta spot before night fall. The plankton and silver fish were surreal and the mantas were so magical!

    Our group did the Night Manta Ray Snorkel. The whole experience was amazing from start to finish. They run smaller groups so there's more interaction and information. The experience with the Manta Rays was incredible. They came so close and were beautiful. Highly recommend this
