Amazing!

This tour is amazing! We saw 4-5 different manta rays from beginning to end. Sea paradise provided everything we needed! The crew was so kind and knowledgeable. We had such a great time! I would definitely recommend!

Best Adventure Ever with Sea Paradise
Tera_K
, Aug 2021
I would highly recommend Sea Paradise for night time snorkeling with manta rays. The boat was nice and clean and the crew was friendly, informative, and funny. They provided everything you needed to be comfortable, including a wetsuit. It was a short ride to the swimming site and after a little instruction we were in the water floating next to a light board. Within seconds there was 4-5 rays swimming all around us and doing barrel rolls. It was so amazing to see them swimming below us. My 8 year old keep saying “oh my gosh this is so cool”. And it really was! If your on the Big Island you MUST look up Sea Paradise with Captain Morgan and night swim with the manta rays. Bucket list item for sure and I will be back again!

Aloha! We have got to agree with your 8-year-old, the mantas really are SO COOL! We're happy to hear you both had such a great experience on the water with the hilarious and knowledgeable Captain Morgan. Please join us next time you're on the island!

My husband had the most delighted look on his face as he described seeing four manta rays. We also appreciated the care we experienced whenever we shared a need.

Inches from gorgeous mantas!!
Lyndsey_C
, Jun 2021
The reviews saying you get to see mantas inches away aren’t kidding!! It was an incredible experience. At first we didn’t see too many mantas, and then we connected our lights with another tour and the mantas came rolling in- literally. They would do barrel rolls right in front of you. You aren’t supposed to touch the mantas, they get so close though!! The crew did a good job of working with the other groups to optimize the experience. Quick breakdown- you sail out and watch the sunset, and then learn the ins and outs of why the mantas are in the area and the rules for floating with them. It’s an verbal easy process and the entire ship’s crew was extremely helpful and great to be around. This tour will come highly recommend to all visiting the area- the takeaways are unmatched and one of a kind!

Aloha Lyndsey, Thankyou so much for your detailed review! We are so happy to hear your experience was one of a kind. They are such beautiful marine species whom also sometime aren't aware of what personal space is. This is what make it so incredible. We hope we'll get the opportunity to have you join us in the near future, maybe for one of our daytime tours next? :) Mahalo Nui Loa

Amazing experience!!
Stephani_J
, Jun 2021
This was an awesome once in a lifetime experience!! The rays swoop in within inches of you and it’s so unbelievable! The tour operators were great - kind, helpful and informative. I was a little worried when they started off handing out ginger chews - not a good sign for sea sickness. Water is a bit choppy when you’re floating in the water. Our family was fine but there were a couple in our trip that were sick. The crew handled it well - very unobtrusive to the rest of the group and didn’t impact our experience at all. Our family all agreed that we were ready to be done about 15 minutes earlier than the end time - but then we would have missed a final loop by 2 rays! Worth it in the end!! Also recommend taking a jacket because it’s chilly after you get out of the water.

Aloha Stephanie, Thank you for your feedback and detailed review! We are so happy you enjoyed the manta experience just as much as we do. A light sweatshirt for afterwards is definitely a great recommendation :) We hope to have the pleasure of you joining us in the future, maybe for a daytime tour next?

Wonderful manta rays experience

The captain and crew are nice, friendly, and knowledgeable about the Manta Rays (the island as well). Unlike other tours that go straight to the snorkeling, we were able to enjoy the sunset before jump into the water. Highly recommend!

Avoid Dustin
Warren_W
, May 2021
The crew was good, but for over half the dive there was some guy named Dustin (from a different crew?) who showed up a few people down from us. I could've put up with his banter -bad jokes and all, but he's talking with his head out of the water the whole time, hence his feet are dangling right in the path we are hoping for the Mantas to do their tricks. After being coached on staying prone in the water for the mantas and for our best experience, his actions just messed it up. We saw fewer manta stunts in front of us after Dustin showed up and all we got in return was his babbling!
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Aloha Warren, We apologize if another company may have created a not so pleasant experience. We are not sure who Dustin is but we notified our crew to be aware of other tour operators that may be disruptive. Thank you for joining us and we hope you adventure with us again!
