We did the Manta Ray night dive and by far was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii. It was a little rocky and took a bit to get to the site, but once in the water we were able to experience the awe of many manta rays floating right above our heads. We saw about 13 different manta rays and I would highly suggest going out of your way to have this experience! The Big Island Divers team was great as they taught us about the creatures and gave a great briefing, it was also my friends first dive after being certified and they really made her feel comfortable the entire dive.

Big Island Divers made everything so easy whether diving or snorkeling. Manta night dive and day dives were amazing! We saw way more manta rays than the other boats due to better lighting. They are super friendly and I learned a lot about the sea life. Definitely go with this group! Hugh was especially great!

Really enjoyed my dive (local 2 tank) with Big Island Divers. Boat crew were fun and informative. Unlike other dive operators they kept the dive groups relatively small and they picked out some great spots. Highly recommend.

My partner and I did the twilight dive (2 tank) and it was one of the best experiences of my life (24). The night dive with the manta rays defies description, it's a must-do activity if you're a scuba diver. I was lucky enough to spot a monk seal as well which just took the whole thing to the next level. Divemaster Ryan and Captain Perry were good at their jobs and a lot of fun to be around.
