Sea Paradise - Moonlight Manta Ray Snorkel Tour

Come aboard the Hokulani, a spacious luxury trimaran, and enjoy a short sail out to Manta Village, located just offshore from the Sheraton Kona Resort at Keauhou Bay. Once you reach Manta Village, the friendly staff on board will provide a knowledgeable and professional briefing on the manta rays and then help you get onto our state-of-the-art "manta flotation device."

This is a float that rests above the majestic manta rays. It is ideal for snorkelers of all ages and skill levels because all you do is hold onto it and float on the water’s surface, marveling at the manta rays below you. Watch them feed on the microscopic plankton that rises from the bottom of the ocean at night and is attracted to the light source attached to the float. As your incredible snorkel experience comes to an end, the staff will guide you back on board for some light snacks or a warm cup of hot cocoa. Snorkel time is approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.

This manta ray snorkel will surely be one of the highlights of your vacation and maybe even one of the most memorable things you do in your lifetime. Sea Paradise has been offering its guests the opportunity to get up close and personal with manta rays since 1985, making Sea Paradise an original tour expert in Hawaii.

  • Sail out to Manta Village
  • From a float, watch manta rays as they feed on the illuminated microscopic plankton below you

Tour Inclusions:

  • All snorkel gear and wetsuit provided
  • Snacks, juice, water, soft drinks and hot cocoa
