The manta ray… One of the most beautiful and serene creatures in the ocean.


1 Hour


Manta rays are fish — close relatives of both other rays and sharks. But swim close enough to one on a manta ray night dive and you’ll swear you were seeing something else.

Off the Kona Coast of the Big Island, manta rays can grow to 15 feet from wing tip to wing tip, and weigh more than 3000 pounds. Not to mention they can live for 40 or 50 years or more! Imagine getting up close and personal with a 35-year-old manta on an Anelakai manta ray night snorkel adventure. Dive into the water and experience it for yourself!

Our outrigger canoes let you snorkel and dive with manta rays in a whole different way — in a small group, and at your own pace. You’ll feel more relaxed and safe, which will let you concentrate more on the beautiful wonder of nature that you can only see in Hawaii.

Book a tour and join us as we slip out into the dark ocean from Keauhou Bay, then paddle a very short 10 minute paddle out to the manta ray night snorkel site. You’ll get as much time as you can with the mantas, and then take just a short trip back at the end of your adventure.

Skip the big crowds and go for a local Hawaiian experience — there’s no better way to meet mantas than on an Anelakai Adventures night manta ray snorkel in Kona!
