    Itinerary

    Once you arrive at the "World Famous Manta Ray Village" our expert staff will provide a knowledgeable and professional briefing as they prepare you to enter the water. After the briefing our staff guides you onto our state of the art “manta floatation device”. Here you will float above the manta rays as they feed on the microscopic plankton. Plankton rises from the bottom of the ocean at night and is attracted to the light source attached to the float. As your incredible snorkel experience comes to and end our staff guides you back onboard where snacks and hot cocoa wait. Snorkel time is approximately 1 hour.

    Great trip with very attentive and hard working crew. Obvious this group has done this for years. I would recommend Sea Paradise for anyone visiting the Big Island.

    The concierge at our hotel recommended this outfit and we were so glad she did. Slightly smaller than the huge luxury boats (it is a 45ft trimaran), we had great personalized service. The masks and snorkels were top quality. The captain stopped us in the...More

    You can ride along in the boat and watch. It’s a small fee but totally possible.

    You will have to swim about 30 feet from the boat to the floating rack you hold onto the entire time you are watching the mantas. You also have a noodle you use to help your legs float. Your face is in the water, so you... More
