Looking to snorkel with manta rays in Kona, Hawaii? This is the right tour for you! Come aboard with My Kona Adventures and chase the setting sun as we make our way toward our site for our Manta Ray Night Snorkel excursion.  We provide your snorkel gear, wetsuits, and noodles/floats – so you stay completely horizontal as you snorkel.

After a quick boat ride to our destination, we get out in the water and project light down into the dark waters. The light attracts plankton which then attracts our manta rays for dinner time! We peacefully float above the action, watching our mantas swoop in search of food and playfully execute some barrel rolls. Many of our manta rays we see on our night snorkel aren’t afraid to get close to us and you might enjoy a nice face-to-face introduction with these gentle giants. Your guide on your Big Island manta ray night snorkel tour is informative and entertaining, ready to answer your questions about our Hawaiian manta rays or just about Hawaii in general.

We keep our night snorkel tour groups small and limited to six for your comfort and enjoyment and to ensure the safety and well-being of our rays.

Swimming with magical giants as they dance and float right in front of your eyes is a truly magical Kona experience!

Our night manta ray snorkel tours begin departing at 6 p.m. and run until 10 p.m. and last about an hour.
