Amazing trip! Amazing experience! Amazing crew! Enjoyed every moment! Worth doing it! You can see the mantas 100%. On the way back we saw lots of bioluminescence in the waves the boat was making! Amazing!

Knowledgeable guides Chris and Buddha were awesome. Very attentive and focused on giving a great experience. Boat ride out and back was great. Manta experience was incredible. So many rolling and swimming inches from you. Would totally do it again.

It was amazing. And we picked the right company to go with! Budha was amazing. He moved us 3 times to make sure we were in the right spot to see the most manta rays. At one time we had 6 swimming around us. We even got touched a couple times!! So cool. I definitely recommend getting a water proof case for your phone. I got some amazing videos. Chris the owner was also very nice and friendly. Great experience!!

We went out at the 530 one and would definitely not recommend at that time. Doing the later time is more likely to see see the manta rays WE WERE ONLY ABLE TO SEE 1 some people didn't see any. The captain and crew were really good and funny just wish there was something on the website saying definitely do the later show.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2021
Aloha Andres, please remember the Manta Rays are wild and we cannot control what time they will be there. Later is not always better. Glad you enjoyed the captain and crew. Hope to have you join us again in the future🧡
