Are you ready for a sunset boat tour and snorkel with manta rays in Kailua-Kona?

This experience includes a sunset sail along the beautiful Kona coast and an hour of snorkeling with the majestic manta rays. Start your adventure by seeing one of Kona's famous sunsets as we sail along the Kona coast to Manta Ray Village, where we'll snorkel. When we get to the snorkeling spot, our guides will give us a full safety talk before we follow them into the water to snorkel with the beautiful manta rays (hahalua).

After that, join us back on the boat for hot cocoa, hot tea, and chocolate chip cookies while we cruise back to the pier, admiring the lights of Kona town. The captain and crew are friendly and experienced (certified in lifeguarding, CPR, first aid, and AED). This boat tour takes place on a fully certified USCG Sailing Catamaran that has trampoline nets, covered and open-air seating, a Surround Sound stereo system, and two restrooms.

Our "grand staircase" allows for simple water entry and exit (no ladders to climb). All of the snorkeling gear, T-top wetsuits, and non-alcoholic drinks are included. Beer, wine, and spirits can be bought separately.

Because manta rays are wild animals, we also provide one of the industry's best manta guarantees. We will rebook you for free if you go out with us and do not see a manta ray (subject to availability; does not apply to "ride along" guests). Check-in is 45 minutes prior to the experience. All guests entering the water must be able to swim without the use of a flotation device. For guests who will not be getting in the water, there is a reduced "ride along" rate.
