Hang Loose did a great job!
, Dec 2020
Hang Loose with Skipper Simon and crew Kelly did a phenomenal job. We arrived at the snorkeling spot, then they did everything possible to give us all the information we needed about the Mantas and did everything possible to get us great views of the Mantas at night. Safety was their #1 priority and they attended to all the passengers needs. I would highly recommend Hang Loose and go with them again!

A must do when you come the the Big Island! We had an amazing experience that we will never forget. My kids are 5 and 7 and while they were nervous the staff on board were all they needed to have the confidence to get out there and do it! Simon and Ryan were fantastic. We went with a large group and it was easy and well worth every dollar!

An amazing experience!!!!! Staff was incredible- Simon, Kelly & Spinner were all great and made sure everyone was safe at all times. They were fun, kept checking on us and made everyone feel at ease. We saw at least 6-7 large manta rays that kept swimming right under us. It was amazing!!! They were extremely gentle & graceful. The key is to stay calm, relaxed and float as they swim below you. The boat provides refreshments and snacks as well! Warning: you may get sea sick. But overall, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!

Close encounter!

Spectacular experience!

Amazing! This was the highlight of our time at Hawaii. The mantas swam right past our faces as they hoovered up the phytoplankton underneath the paddle boards that we were hanging onto. The guys that ran the tour were great fun. Make sure you take some warm clothes. Overall, well worth the money and very highly recommended!
Unprofessional and miserable time - go to another tour operator
, Mar 2020
Many things went wrong on my tour with Hang Loose - first off, they had to reschedule our tour because of the weather which was fine but a little last minute. Then they were way too lax on their procedures and it was harrowing for a tour that operates out in the ocean with people of varying swimming levels. There were no lockers to place our belongings and when asked questions, the staff members responded vaguely saying we can do whatever we want (wear a life vest or whatever, place phone/valuables on the boat or whatever, jump into the ocean or whatever, have a noodle under your foot or whatever!). I was absolutely miserable!!! It was SO cold in the water and on the boat ride back, even though they had advised us to bring a towel, we needed way more than that. There was no way to tell the difference between the staff members and guests because we were all wearing our snorkel masks. They did NOT do a head count or review a safety procedures, and when I finally got out of the boat and onto the raft, there was NO spaces left and the captain was just hanging out on the boat not doing anything.
Professional, well run trip!

Fantastic tour! The crew was amazing, and the amenities were impressive. Unlimited snacks! We thought they were kidding about the hot shower after snorkeling, but to our delight it was real! There are a lot of outfits doing this exact tour, but this one is the best!
