Snorkel And Dive With Giant Manta Rays In Hawaii
The mysterious manta ray is one of the largest amazing fishes in the ocean with wingspans of up to 20 feet or more and Hawaii Island offers your best opportunity to encounter these amazing creatures. Each year thousands of people take the plunge and have an experience that will last them a lifetime!
The manta rays were awesome, they truly are one of the gentle giants of the oceans.
See And Feel The Harmless Mesmerizing Giant Mantas
Though mantas are wild animals and as intimidating as these otherworldly mantas look, they are quite friendly. With no teeth, luckily, they are quite harmless. There is obviously no guarantee of how many you will see when you go out, you are almost certain to have plenty of exciting interactions with the mantas as well as an appearance from the critically endangered Waimanu, the monk seal, if you’re lucky.
Unlike stingrays or eagle rays, mantas do not have stingers. They feed on microscopic plankton, which accounts for their large, gaping mouths.
Once In A Lifetime Experience In Night Dive With The Mantas
The famous Kona Manta Ray Night Dive is one of the most memorable dives around the planet, and is one of the activities on Hawaii that you shouldn’t miss.
Jumping into the nighttime waters off the volcanic coast of Kona on the Big Island, is unlike anything you’ve ever done before. Especially spotlights are used to attract mantas that swim above and below you like Stealth Bombers which feed off the plankton illuminated by the light. You can see this show just offshore at resorts like the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay, just south of Historic Kailua Village (Kailua-Kona).
Your Choice To Snorkel Or Dive
It is possible to dive or snorkel to see the Manta rays at night. The biggest difference between snorkeling and diving is that snorkeling leaves you on the ocean surface – above “the manta ray action”, while diving (require diving certification) allows you to be in the middle.
