Encounter Majestic Manta Rays for an Unforgettable Vacation Highlight in Kailua-Kona, HI

Dive and snorkel with Kona’s majestic Manta Rays for an unforgettable vacation highlight. This world-renowned experience in the Hawaiian Islands is often described as surreal and ranks among the top ten dives globally.

The dive/snorkel experience takes place in a serene and sheltered bay with calm waters, making it an ideal location for underwater exploration. The dive boats anchor around a sandy area that descends to a depth of approximately thirty feet. As the participants gather together, divers settle on the sandy bottom, while snorkelers effortlessly float above.

The remarkable aspect of this dive/snorkel adventure is the concentration of plankton in this area, allured by the radiant glow of our lights. This concentration of plankton attracts the magnificent Mantas, graceful giants of the ocean who thrive on this microscopic feast. With wingspans that can reach an impressive 15 feet and weighing over 1000 pounds, Kona’s local Mantas gracefully glide amidst the divers and snorkelers, performing continuous flips as they seize mouthfuls of plankton from their nightly buffet.

Getting on this underwater journey allows you to witness the awe-inspiring spectacle of these majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Whether you choose to observe from the sandy bottom or from above, the proximity to these gentle giants promises an unforgettable encounter in the mesmerizing underwater world.
