Seeing the manta ray directly beneath us was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had! We saw 9-10 manta rays. It was a beautiful,calm night. The experience could not have been better. The crew was amazing! Fun, funny, knowledgeable and very well prepared. Their expertise made us feel very safe in the water. Thank you Simon, Kelly and Adam!!

The Hang Loose group was accommodating, friendly, and super helpful. They made the crowd feel at ease and they knew what they were talking about....... and then when you get into the water?! It’s mind-blowing and easily the BEST NIGHT EVER.

Such a beautiful sight to watch in the Manta Rays natural habitat!

After waiting and wondering if they would come or not: We watched at least 13 Manta Rays of various sizes feeding. It was one of the most beautiful sights I have seen. We saw males and females cartwheeling through the lights eating plankton. Then Big Birtha came along with her 15-16 foot wing span.....wow! Just wow! She was a beauty to behold as she so gracefully glided through the water to feed. I was so excited to watch the Manta Rays in their natural habitat.

I am from Alaska and we never get in the open ocean. I have a fear of being in the salt water past my waist. I was clinging onto the ladder with fear. Immediately Spinner (Ryan) saw my panic and was right by my side. He helped me get to and from the platform and made sure I was ok! He truly made my experience so amazing. If it wasn't for him and the rest of the crew I doubt I would have got in and had the most wonderful experience of my trip! I got brushed upon by a manta and the other fish and plankton were also amazing to see! Highly recommended and would do it again 100%! Thanks fellas you truly made my Manta experience a success and you are much appreciated! Michael Phelps out!

I highly recommend this tour to anyone staying on the island. My husband was a little ho-hum about going but completely changed his tune after the swim. The crew was attentive and professional. The experience was amazing. I will do it every time I go to the big island!
