I went to the Manta Ray Snorkel on the Anelakai Adventures' canoe. Since we had a 5-year old in our party and none of us were comfortable swimming this option was chosen. I wish they had proper signboards for the car park.More

Iko and Keyan took us out on Iko's beautiful outrigger canoe to snorkel with manta Rays - an experience I'll never forget. They made us feel so comfortable, like I'd known them for years. This excursion was the highlight of our vacation!! Mahalo, Iko!

Top ten activity. Enjoyed watching the Mantas for almost an hour; like a ballet watching them feed on the plankton. Loved the silence of the canoe as well. I highly recommend this experience!!!
