The manta ray night dive and snorkel is an exhilarating experience that is unique to the Kona Coast and one of the top night dives and snorkels in the world. You will board the Honu One at the Honokohau Harbor and cruise north along the coast up to Garden Eel Cove in Makako Bay. Everyone will get to enjoy a Kona sunset before having an educational briefing on the manta rays. After nightfall, you will enter the water in the hopes to see these gentle giants perform their graceful underwater ballet. Your water time will be 60 minutes. We see these magnificent creatures 60% of the time. If there are no mantas we get to enjoy an epic night reef dive.

Free Manta Guarantee

Please note that the Manta Rays are wild animals and we cannot guarantee their presence. If you do not see a manta on your night out, you can go again on another night on a space-available standby basis for free (rental gear not included). Keep in mind that standby spaces may be extremely limited, especially during the busiest times of the year. This offer never expires, but is non-transferable and has no refund or cash value. We are typically very successful in finding mantas for you; however, if they are not around, the costs involved with setting up the dive and getting all our guests to the location will not allow for us to offer you a refund.

You may make changes or cancellations to your reservations up to 48 hours prior to your trip without penalty. Cancellations made inside of 48-hours will be refunded 50% of the cost of the trip.
