Enjoy a moonlight sail aboard our spacious trimaran, the Hokulani, to the world famous, Manta Ray Village. Manta rays are gentle giants of the sea, with many residing along the Kona Coast. Harmless to humans, they are drawn to the spotlights that light up the night to eat plankton.These mesmerizing creatures sometimes gracefully glide within inches of awe-struck snorkelers. Swimming with manta rays is often the highlight of visitors’ trips to Hawaii. We are the original manta ray tour expert in Hawaii, helping its guests get up close and personal with these majestic creatures since 1985. 


For our snorkeling guests, our crew will guide you onto our state-of-the-art “manta floatation device.” Guests of all ages and skill levels can hold onto this float that drifts above the manta rays. You’ll watch in awe as these majestic manta rays glide and loop, feeding on microscopic plankton attracted to the light sources attached to the float.To wrap up your amazing Hawaii snorkel tour, we’ll provide some light snacks and a warm cup of hot cocoa for your sail home. Snorkel time is approximately 45 minutes. Don’t want to snorkel? That’s okay too. For our ride-along guests, you can watch the majestic manta rays from the comfort of our 45-foot trimaran.
