Aloha Dolphin Discoveries! What a AHHHHHH-MAZING, Magical and Epic experience!!! The process was very easy. We were greeted by Ireland who was very professional, friendly and helpful! Next, we received our safety briefing and boarded the boat. We were greeted by a Great Captain and his crew. The boat was perfect to accommodate us and the gear. A short boat ride to the site, we were introduced to Justin, the in-water guide. Within minutes we were BLESSED with several Manta Rays and overall we saw at least 15 (maybe a few repeats). What an INCREDIBLE, Truly AWESOME, Once in a Lifetime experience! Justin was very knowledgeable and showed care for each guest. Each Manta Ray that visited us brought MUCH JOY! Highly recommended and choose the Go Pro option! Mahalo! Michele

Awesome start to finish, a must if you are in the area!! The crew definitely knows how to draw in the Manata Ray's to give you the up close exposure to these incredible creatures. Our inwater guide, Justine, was extremely knowledgeable about the Ray's.

Manta ballet. I don't have pictures cause I didn't think it made sense to get a gopro for the nighttime. Don't make that mistake. Though being able to see the frills inside the gills of the manta is a vision that's burned into my brain. The plankton was so thick we had 4 manta at once and many more. What an intense and unforgettable experience!!!

About This Deal


What can be better than viewing manta rays in the wild? Come aboard our vessel as we set out into the Pacific Ocean on a short cruise to the mouth of Keauhou Bay for in in water observation of the the manta rays. Let our expert "in water" guides give you an experience of a lifetime. Imagine floating in a dark ocean near the water’s surface as you hold on to our state of the art flotation device outfitted with lights when giant prehistoric, creatures with wingspans over 12’ glide silently and effortlessly into view from out of the inky dark boundaries of light. As they feed, the manta ray will swim while doing somersaults (barrel rolls) and turning gracefully in the beams of piercing light, giving you the most unforgettable snorkel adventure ever!

Manta Ray viewing is a bucket list item for all who visit us here on the Big Island. Come see what the excitement is all about.
