Kona Sunset Manta Ray Night Snorkel

Location: Kona, Big Island

Discover the majestic manta rays of the Kona Coast aboard a comfortable and stable trimaran boat.

After you board the spacious 45-foot trimaran, you will travel to the World Famous Manta Ray Village off the Kona Coast. Going on a manta ray night snorkel in Hawaii is an amazing and unforgettable experience.

What to Expect

After you are aboard, we coast to the world famous, Manta Ray Village. Manta rays are gentle giants of the sea, with many residing along the Kona Coast.

Harmless to humans, they are drawn to the spotlights that light up the night to eat plankton. These mesmerizing creatures sometimes gracefully glide within inches of amazed snorkelers.

Swimming with manta rays is often the highlight of visitors’ trips to Hawaii. Sea Paradise is an original manta ray tour expert in Hawaii, helping its guests get up close and personal with these majestic creatures since 1985.

Once you reach Manta Ray Village, our friendly crew will provide you with an informative briefing about manta rays.

For our snorkeling guests, after dark our crew will guide you onto our state-of-the-art “manta floatation device.” You’ll watch in amazement as these majestic manta rays glide and loop, feeding on microscopic plankton attracted to the light sources attached to the float. Snorkel time is approximately 45 minutes.

Enjoy light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages after your snorkel tour.

Don’t want to snorkel? That’s okay too. For our ride-along guests, you can watch the majestic manta rays from the comfort of our 45-foot trimaran
