Once in a lifetime snorkeling opportunity

DO IT! Incredible experience with knowledgeable operator!

This excursion is run by a personable local family (father & daughter I believe). They were informative & patient and supplied everything we needed, even down to hot drinks at the end. The knowledgable snorkel team was fun to hang with (literally, hang) and guaranteed our manta ray interactions. The experience was one of a kind and I would do it a hundred times more with this tour operator!

This is a must do! My entire family loved it. This is an amazing experience and the crew was great! There was a group from a different tour company nearby and they had a 7 year old boy with them who was freaked out, but these mantas are gentle giants and beautiful creatures, so there's really nothing to worry about.

Really fantastic experience. We saw so many rays up close and also had a visit from a pod of dolphins! The team were all great - friendly, informative and really knowledgeable about the marine life we saw. We rented a GoPro there and caught some amazing footage. Thank you all for such a great memorable experience!

We went with our teenagers ages 12, 14, and 16. It was a blast and we all loved it! I should have worn the wetsuit because brrrr. The guides were so helpful and it was a fun and seamless experience. The manta rays got so close and really put on a beautiful show. Snacks and hot drinks offered when we returned. Please remember to include gratuities because they deserve it. 5 stars

An amazing experience. We were on another tour company’s trip a few years ago but this one was better. We saw many mantas this time and enjoyed the narration by the host who was with us in the water.

Unique and wonderful experience!

This was our first activity when we got to Kona and it was INCREDIBLE. The boat ride couldn’t be more than a minute and then you hope it and you are in their spectacular world. Everyone was so helpful. Wetsuits were offered and I’m so glad i took one because even though it wasn’t cold out i got chilly. The diver was super knowledgeable about all of the manatarays and it was a sight to behold. Do this experience and be better than me and bring a underwater camera or GoPro! Thanks!!!

Thanks for joining us Meghan. It was a pleasure snorkeling with you. We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the tour. Mahalo for the review and we would love to help get you some super manta pics next time your back on the Big Island. Aloha. (For those reading GoPro's are available to rent if needed and the SD card is yours to keep and take home. Just let us know.😊)

Unforgettable, must do experience!

Alisha, Sam and Jake were awesome and very friendly! It is a small group they take out each trip which made it seem more personal and less likely for others to ruin things by flailing about. 30 minutes is a good amount of time to enjoy these large, wonderful creatures. They swim so close but never touch...I swear they were 3" from my face mask! Highly recommend, it may be expensive but well worth the experience!

Thank you Robin. It's great to hear that you enjoyed the tour and our dedicated crew. The Mantas at Keauhou have no boundaries and are known to get right up close and personal with guests. It's a one of kind thrilling opportunity we are lucky to have to share with others. Mahalo for the high recommendation and we hope to see you again. Aloha.
