Manta Sighting Guarantee! (until 2018/12/31)

If you do not spot any manta rays during the activity, you will be given the chance to come out again for FREE!

What qualifies as a manta sighting is determined by a trained member of the crew. This non-transferable offer allows you to reschedule your tour for free; it does not entitle you to a refund.

Venture into the underwater world of Hawaii's Giant Kona Manta Rays as you use lights to attract them and then watch as they perform amazing underwater feats! The picturesque Kona coast provides one of the best locations in the world to swim with these breathtaking creatures, and one of the best ways to experience them is up close and personal. The Mantas are extremely harmless and gentle creatures, with no teeth or stinging spines on their tails, making this a great activity for the whole family!
