So incredible! The Manta rays swam up to the light boards that we were hanging onto and came within INCHES of us!! Experience of a lifetime! We loved it.

Such a great time!

My husband And I loved this experience!! This company in particular offers a smaller more intimate experience rather than being in a huge crowd. Also, the captain and employees had such fun and positive attitudes! Highly recommend doing this while in Hawaii, the manga rays are so cool!
Highlight of our trip!

So magical. Was first worried my 9yr old would be too scared jumping off a boat in the dark. He had the time of his life! Thanks Amanda, Conner & the boat crew! You guys were awesome.
Once in a lifetime experience!

The crew was great! Provided a lot of cool information about the manta rays. You could tell they respected the rays and their environment. We saw many rays and other marine life. There was not a dull moment. Worth the cost!!
So thrilling

So exciting!! Our group of 5 shared a float with 4 others and we all were “screaming” but loving it. Our guide Tristan was great chasing our noodles. Definitely an experience you will not see elsewhere. We swam with dolphins at hotel but this is more natural amazing excursion.
Great night with Manta Rays

Wonderful experience, peaceful and beautiful. One cheeky Manta Ray kept getting really close. Three in all. Shout out to Dolphin Discoveries for taking care of us.
Great time for the entire family

I had read about this, but still could not believe that the Manta Rays actually came as close as they did, they actually bumped me a couple times. The crew was great, made us all feel really comfortable in a pretty uncomfortable environment. Will definitely be doing this again!
Unforgettable :)

The crew was awesome! We saw so many Manta’s, exceeded our expectations. They came so close we had to try very hard not to touch them. The whole family had a great time.
