  • Amazing experience!

  • Was not easy to resist the current, but amazing experience. If only someone would have helped me adjust my mask so that it would not leak and so I wouldn't have had salty water in my eyes, it would have been perfect. The only recommendation I would have is give everyone a little noodle to put under your feet and you wouldn't have so many people with their feet down chasing away the manta rays. Hold on tight and enjoy the show! I recommend though, it's a must-do!

  • Excellent experience, far exceeded my expectations!

  • Amazing experience. Simon and Jacob were excellent and as soon as we hit the water we started seeing the manta rays. Best trip of the vacation, highly recommend.

  • What a great tour!!! Seeing the Manta Rays so up close was the most amazing experience ever!!! Our captain and Jacob were super nice and professional. The boat ride was awesome we even chased dolphins and saw a gorgeous sunset and the Manta Rays were Magical sooo up close!! Thank you for this fantastic tour worth every penny!

  • This tour was so much fun and definitely a must do on Big Island. The tour guides were knowledgeable! It is a small boat so hang out at the back of the boat if youre prone to motion sickness. The tours essentially float boards with lights connected to the bottom off these boards. There are handles to the side of the board which help you hold on to the boards and float with your head below the water. They will give you rubber noodles to stay afloat and you have to stay really still to attract plankton. Once the plankton accumulates, the grand manta rays will arrive and you will not be disappointed. It was a fantastic experience watching these gentle giants up close! Do not forget to carry your water cameras and go pros with you.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Awesome experience! Would definitely recommend these guys!

  • Simon and Jacob took our group out last week. They provided safety info, wetsuit tops, snorkel gear, snacks, drinks, and music during the 20 minute boat ride to the site. Jacob was terrific and very helpful with everything, from distributing drinks to tying up the boat to corralling everyone in the water to keep us from kicking the rays. They put a board with LED lights in the water and for about 30 minutes, you hang onto the board while the light attracts the manta rays. They were magnificent, six or seven at one time swooping up below and around us to eat the plankton. Very cool. If you tend to get seasick, you may want to opt for a larger boat that rocks less, because you do spend about 30 minutes on the boat waiting to get in the water and getting everyone back on afterwards.

  • This was awesome!!!!!
