There’s nothing like being out on the ocean enjoying the beautiful Hawaiian sunset and watching manta rays.

We get you geared up in wetsuits and snorkel gear to get in the water to witness Manta Rays feeding. These harmless and docile creatures need to eat 10 percent of their body weight, and with a guide in the water, you will witness this amazing phenomenon. in a beautiful and safe way.

Watching these amazing creatures somersault in front of you multiple times, close enough to where you could kiss them, is a once in a lifetime experience. Drinks and a snack will be waiting for you on the boat upon your return.

On the way back to Puako pier, you’ll enjoy the beautiful starlit sky. Here’s a fact you might not know, Mauna Kea on the Big Island is the best place on earth to study the stars and the universe.
