from Sunset Cruise and Night Manta Swim
Join us for our 1.5-hour evening boat trip out of Keauhou Harbor to enjoy the beautiful Kona coastline and Sunset, as we await the mantas arrival. You will travel a short distance to learn some history and culture of the area, view wildlife along the coast and enjoy snacking on a fresh fruit and sushi platter as the sun fades over the ocean. Then as night falls, we return to the original "Manta Village" to witness the majestic manta rays come to feed on the abundant buffet of phytoplankton that appears with the glow of underwater dive lights.

Slide into the alluring Pacific Ocean, buoyed by our light board and accompanied by our dive guide to experience the thrill of having giant manta rays gracefully glide and swoop through the waters all within inches of you. Back on board, complete your breathtaking experience with some warm green tea on the short ride back to the Keauhou pier.

On the rare occasion you don't see any manta rays on your sunset snorkel tour, you can join us again for a free on the next available scheduled tour (pending space availability).
