Experience your amazing Kona manta ray snorkel tonight!
Any ocean lover and marine life enthusiast should have the Kona Manta Ray Snorkel on the top of their must-do list! The family owned and locally operated Splashers Ocean Adventures provides an exclusive and ecologically conscious search to find these peaceful creatures feeding in their natural habitat.
Depart from the Honokohau Harbor, on the leeward side of the Big Island, for your Kona Manta Ray Snorkel adventure. The 28 foot ‘Orca’ is your vessel for the evening, and provides the best in the business for handling and agility. You’ll also find it to be comfortable with ample seating and dry storage. Enjoy the sunset with your small group and new friends along the Kona Coast, on your way to your snorkel destination.
If you are feeling nervous or hesitant about snorkeling at night with these animals, don’t be! The crew will make sure you are at ease before getting into the water. They’ll give you a briefing on what to expect, how the mantas behave, and how to keep everyone safe and happy. Get geared up with mask, fins, snorkel and wetsuit. The wetsuit will not only keep you warm, but also helps with your buoyancy. Next, you’ll hop into the water with the crew and swim with your group holding onto a floating board. These boards shine light for you to see the marine life, and also attract the mantas’ dinner, plankton. Learn the different names and features of the regular visitors to this veritable plankton buffet. These magnificent fish have a wingspan of up to 12 feet from wingtip to wingtip, and they can weigh up to one thousand pounds! Feel exhilarated and humbled by the presence of these mild-mannered creatures in their natural environment.
Throughout the ride back to the harbor, gaze up at the clear skies and stars to feel a special kinship to this Earth and its amazing inhabitants! The Kona Manta Ray Snorkel is an exceptional and extraordinary experience, not to be missed!
