You won't i-manta-gine how amazing this trip was! I loved Dre and Ian. I felt safe, comfortable, and most importantly saw Manta rays. Splashers was great! I would booked directly through them for potentially a lower price. We rented a Go-Pro from Dre, and it was well worth the extra cost. This experience is one of my top three favourite... More

We just returned from an amazing night time snorkel with manta rays with captain Ty and ship mate Dre. Not only did Dre go out of his way to make sure we had mantas up close and personal but his unbridled excitement at seeing not only a small pod of dolphins but also a very rare monk seal was engaging....

Our next excursion was a morning snorkel with Dre again we swam with a pod of... More

I wasn't originally going to do this, because the idea of swimming in the ocean at night makes me nervous, but an equally risk adverse friend said it was a must-do. We book a Sunday night tour on Saturday, so I was glad they had availability. Dre was our guide. He was very professional throughout. He had our kids put... More

Our captain was Cyrus and our guide was Eon (sp?). It's a must do experience that can't be duplicated anywhere else in the world and these guys are the team you want to do it with. Eon was very knowledgeable and very well educated on the Manta's so while we were experiencing approximately 8 massive gentle giants right under our... More

This Manta Ray sunset trip was the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. You have to do it to believe it. Dre was the best. He made sure we were comfortable in the water and took care of us throughout the entire experience. My husband and I are in our 60's and Dre really helped us feel at... More

We booked the morning dolphin swim and snorkel with Splashers Ocean Adventures on our last day of vacation, and our only regret was not meeting Laura and Dre sooner! They were fantastic - funny, knowledgeable, very in tune to the dolphins that we saw. They expertly guided our (comfy) zodiac to many dolphin pods, and after observing their behavior, let... More
