Snorkel with Manta Rays



Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

Manta rays—those up to 3,000-pound giants—are revered in Native Hawaiian culture and even celebrated in the Kumulipoa creation chant. Off the coast of Kailua-Kona, on the western edge of the Island of Hawaii (or Big Island), tourists don snorkels and watch the resident rays’ nighttime feeding routines under LED lights.

Kona manta rays are typically around 12 feet in width.

They are friendly as the manta rays eat plankton which they filter out of the water by swimming with their mouths open. The reef manta rays in do not migrate and live here year-round.

 In keeping with the island’s Pono Pledge, a call to travel righteously and honor Hawaiian values, small groups can ditch the typical motorboats for human power, paddling a double-hull canoe while guides share stories of the island’s traditional ways.
