Board the M/V Makai and settle in the cushy comfort of the upper deck as we cruise to the evenings Manta site for your Big Island snokeling. Enjoy the scenic Kona coast as your crew pampers you with snacks and beverages. Upon arrival, move to the lower “wet” deck and prepare for the experience of a lifetime as you anticipate the arrival of the evenings entertainment, the giant Kona Manta Rays.
Manta Rays often swim within inches of our guests as they hold on to our specially designed “Circle of Light” viewing frame. This frame allows Manta Rays to swim up in front our guests not just under them. This not only gives our guests the opportunity for a better view of the Mantas, it also allows for a safer encounter for the Mantas. Human contact such as accidental kicking of Mantas or touching Mantas, is greatly reduced. Blue Sea Cruises is the only tour operator in the State of Hawaii that
operates under guidelines based on the scientific data of dangers
recorded for many years by boats to manta rays.
After your Manta Ray dive Kona experience, return to the Makai’s warm dry upper deck to share your experience with the other guests. Sit back on the return cruise and enjoy complimentary snacks, hot coffee,
sodas even Mai Tias. Additional beer, wine and mixed drinks are available for purchase.
