Sailing Canoe Manta Ray Snorkel

Location: Kona, Big Island

The Hawaiian Sailing Canoe is the most unique and authentic way to experience Hawaiian waters along the Kona Coastline. Onboard a recreated historically accurate 40 ft Hawaiian double-hulled sailing canoe, Wa’a Kini Kini, your experienced crew shares generations of knowledge in an old Hawaiian way, “story telling”. Guests are invited to paddle, sail or just kick back and enjoy their Journey through History.

What to Expect

During our Manta Ray Night Snorkel, join us as we take a short ride to the legendary Manta Ray Village. Our experienced guides will assist you as we snorkel with the majestic hahalua (manta rays). Snorkeling with these gentle giants is a magical experience that should not be missed. Book your adventure today and see why the Travel Channel has called this experience one of the top ten things to do in your lifetime!

Once out in the snorkel location get ready to dip into the water and hold onto our floating raft that is equipped with high-powered dive lights. These lights attract plankton which will then bring up the Manta Rays to feed close by for us to observe.

With a maximum capacity of only 6 guests per tour. We are by far the most intimate and authentic manta ray snorkeling experience in Kona.
