Spend a unique evening snorkelling with manta rays off the coast of Hawaii's Big Island: enjoy an unforgettable night swim with these majestic sea creatures.
Night Swim with Manta Rays on Big Island Hawaii
Snorkelling is always an incredible experience full of memorable moments, but snorkelling at night makes it even more special! What secrets will you find in the waters around Hawaii Island under the dark night sky?
After meeting at Keauhou Bay at 8 pm on the day of your tour and going through the safety instructions for your night swimming experience, you'll climb aboard a boat and set sail to an area known for being a natural habitat for manta rays.
In just five minutes, you'll have arrived in the spot where these incredible marine creatures live: did you know they can reach up to 23 feet (7 metres) in width? Put on your snorkelling goggles and breathing tube and you'll be ready to get into the sea! You'll head underwater accompanied by your instructor, who will be carrying a light board allowing you to see the manta rays in the dark water. What's more, the light attracts plankton - also known as dinner for the enormous rays!
You'll spend 45 minutes swimming with the manta rays, before climbing back aboard the boat and returning to the original departure point, where you'll enjoy a relaxing green tea after all the excitement! The activity will then come to an end at 9 pm... not that you'll want to leave!
If you want to enjoy this activity without having to worry about organising transport to Keauhou Bay, select the option that includes transfers between your hotel and the pier. If you choose this hotel pick up option, please indicate the name of your hotel when making your reservation.
