Activity Highlights

What can be better than viewing manta rays in the wild? Come aboard our vessel as we set out into the Pacific Ocean on a short cruise to the mouth of Keauhou Bay for in in water observation of the the manta rays. Let our expert "in water" guides give you an experience of a lifetime. Imagine floating in a dark ocean near the water’s surface as you hold on to our flotation device outfitted with lights when giant prehistoric, creatures with wingspans over 12’ glide silently and effortlessly into view from out of the inky dark boundaries of light. As they feed, the manta ray will swim while doing somersaults (barrel rolls) and turning gracefully in the beams of piercing light, giving you the most unforgettable snorkel adventure ever!

Manta Ray viewing is a bucket list item for all who visit us here on the Big Island. Come see what the excitement is all about.

  • The crew was great! Provided a lot of cool information about the manta rays. You could tell they respected the rays and their environment. We saw many rays and other marine life. There was not a dull moment. Worth the cost!!

  • So exciting!! Our group of 5 shared a float with 4 others and we all were “screaming” but loving it. Our guide Tristan was great chasing our noodles. Definitely an experience you will not see elsewhere. We swam with dolphins at hotel but this is more natural amazing excursion.

  • I had read about this, but still could not believe that the Manta Rays actually came as close as they did, they actually bumped me a couple times. The crew was great, made us all feel really comfortable in a pretty uncomfortable environment. Will definitely be doing this again!

  • This was such a great experience, the crew/company was fantastic. They were knowledgeable! Even though the water was a little choppy the visibility was still great. Saw lots of Mantas!

  • The crew was awesome! We saw so many Manta’s, exceeded our expectations. They came so close we had to try very hard not to touch them. The whole family had a great time.

  • This was amazing the crew were great and they made the experience so much fun. Would recommend it to everyone and definitely do again

  • Amazing..a must do... Tour guide amaizing but the mantarays were just beautiful.. angels in the water

  • So amazing! We saw so many manta rays and very, very close! I would say the highlight of our vacation. Enjoyed it immensely. Even got to see some tuna and a few other fish/ reef sharks. This is definitely not to be missed!

  • Absolutely amazing experience. From start to finish, we couldn’t have asked for a better excursion. All of the employees at Dolphin Excursions were top notch, and the mantas are a cannot miss opportunity when you are on the big island. Highly recommend for everyone visiting.

  • Fantastic! It was awesome to see so many manta rays! Staffs are knowledgeable and super friendly! Book it ASAP

  • short trip to the manta ray viewing area, some touts travel 20 minutes each way so it gets real cold going back. small group so not a big mass of people to deal with
