Night Manta Ray Snorkeling

"The tour starts on a dock 5 minutes or so away from the snorkeling spot. It may be advertised as shorter than other tours, but that's because the other tour starts 30 minutes from the spot. In the end, all tours spend the same time in the water. The closer you start, the less you'll freeze on the way back. Being in a smaller group also allowed us to move where we wanted during the snorkeling, increasing the chances of seeing manta rays and having them swim with us. Bigger groups just stay attached to the boat and have to wait for manta rays to come. Really happy with the experience, I would recommend without hesitation!"

Absolutely amazing company and experience

"You should absolutely take this tour! Tonight was our first time doing a manta ray night snorkel tour. There are so many companies it's hard to pick. My husband and our friends and I booked with Eka Canoe Adventures. I am so glad we chose this company! We got to take a large double-hull canoe and Kai and Marc were amazing guides! They were super helpful, and fun, had so many interesting facts about the rays and were so entertaining. Then the Manta rays!!! This was one of the coolest things we have ever done! We saw 3 rays throughout our time and they came right under us and did flips! We will definitely be coming back!"

Great trip!

"My family had a great time. The captain and Kai were amazing. My son was nervous but Kai made him feel comfortable enough to get in the water and he enjoyed the experience. Definitely a must do on the big island. I highly recommend Eka Canoe Adventures for the manta ray night snorkel. The smaller boat makes it more personal. Would book again!"

Exceeded my expectations!

"I was questioning the canoe but it made the trip! We were near other boats and guides and our guides at Eka knew so much more. I feel like we hit the jackpot with Eka. The mantas come within inches of your face, etc. they are so happy and playful and seem to love us tourists and the fact that we are there. Safety was important to the guides as well- excellent precautions and care were taken for each guest- really took the stress off of nervous people. This tour exceeded my expectations in every way!!"

Absolutely Spectacular

"It is hard to describe this experience! It is beyond incredible! The Manta Rays were so much larger than expected. They truly came centimeters from your face and when I went there were 10 to 15 rays swimming around at one time. You feel like you are in a different world! I loved every second of it. This is 100% an experience you should have while on the island, no doubt! It is the coolest thing I have done in Hawaii and I've done quite a bit! The boat ride was short and sweet and the crew was amazing. They made sure everyone was comfortable and up to date on all the safety information. Wet suit tops were provided but I didn't get cold so you might not need one. Such an incredible night! Definitely recommend! :)"

"This was an incredible experience we continued to gush about during the drive home. So glad we did this and so worth it! Captain Mark and Kai were excellent! They explained everything and worked hard to make sure we had a great experience. The Manta Rays circled up to within inches of us over and over. We lost count of how many times they came up to us. Truly a great and memorable experience that we highly recommend!"
