Board the M/V Makai and settle in the cushy comfort of the upper decks "Sky Lounge" as we cruise to the evenings Manta site for your Big Island snorkeling. Enjoy the scenic Kona coast as your crew pampers you with a snack and beverage. Upon arrival, move to the lower “wet” deck and prepare for the experience of a lifetime as you anticipate the arrival of the giant Kona Manta Rays. We provide your wetsuit, mask and snorkel.
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.
After your Manta Ray dive Kona experience, return to the Makai’s warm "Sky Lounge" to share your experience with the other guests. Sit back on the return cruise and enjoy a complimentary snack, hot coffee or Mai Tai.
Additional beer, wine and mixed drinks are available for purchase.
