Manta Ray Night Snorkeling Guide (Kona, Hawaii): What to Expect (a thrill)

Manta ray night snorkeling made it into my top 5 best life experiences list. It beat out bungee jumping in Switzerland, windsurfing in Maui, and snowboarding in the Sahara. I like adventure but anyone can snorkel with manta rays.

And they should. Here is the manta ray night snorkeling guide you need to overcome your fears (if you have them) and what to expect once you plunge into the dark waters off of Kona, Hawaii.

Manta ray night snorkels average 85% to 90% sightings rate on the Kona Coast. Manta rays are not dangerous. In fact, they are harmless creatures. Night snorkeling is an ideal way to swim with manta rays as they feed off phytoplankton. The phytoplankton is attracted to the light from your group’s shared swimming flotation device.

A trip to the Big Island (Hawai’i) isn’t complete without experiencing a manta ray night snorkel. With up to an 18-foot wingspan, these gentle giants of the sea will be a memory for you and your family members forever. Yes, kids can go.
