from Night Manta Swim
Join us for our 1-hour evening boat trip out of Keauhou Harbor to snorkel with manta rays just off the Big Island. This quick nighttime snorkeling excursion is a must-do on Hawaii!

Slide into the alluring Pacific Ocean, buoyed by our light board accompanied by our dive guide to witness the majestic manta rays come to fee on the abundant buffet of phytoplankton that appears with the glow of underwater dive lights. Experience the thrill of having giant manta rays gracefully glide and swoop through the waters... all within inches of you.

On the rare occasion, you don't see any Manta Rays, you can join with us again for free on the next available scheduled tour (pending space availability).

January - April: 7:15 pm

Bambi is great and gives a very thorough history of the area. On both excursions we went on (dolphin snorkel and night manta snorkel) we saw exactly what we paid for and her and her crew were AMAZING!!!! Will definitely be going out with them next time were on the island

The crew was very knowledgeable, the sushi was good, and since we didn't see much Manta activity on the cruise the team offered to let me go out with the very next group. On the second tour there was much more activity! Very intimate, on the sunset cruise my wife and I were the only guests!

We had amazing time with Barbie store going in one of the most beautiful Reefs in the world! She made stops along the shore at the caves and searched for whales. She gave us lots of history and ocean information to enrich our trip. We are grateful for her hospitality and expertise! It was an amazing adventure, don’t miss out!

We had a fab time exploring the ocean with Bambi. Got to swim with so many wild dolphins and spotted Hump back whales - thanks to Bambi's knowledge of the place and expertise. She served the most delicious fruit platter! Wish we had done all our ocean adventure trips in the Big Island with her. Oh well, next time!
