Dolphin Discoveries - Manta Discovery Adventure

After boarding just in time to watch the sunset, enjoy the cruise out to Keauhou Bay to swim and see the manta rays. The manta rays wing can span up to 12 ft wide or more.

Plankton are attracted by the lights that shine directly on the bay from atop the nearby hotel as well as the flotation boards. The manta rays feed on plankton by sweeping through the water with their mouths wide open. You may even get to watch them do barrel rolls as they feed.

Tour Inclusions:
  • Wetsuit top, snorkel, mask and flotation devices
  • Hot tea
