Manta Ray? Manta Ray!

It was great going out with 9 divers and 2 divemasters. One Manty Ray showed up at the first of two dives. The night dive with many Mantas passing by was just spectacular.

We are so pleased with our diving experience. Not only did we see some amazing sites but the whole boat trip was fun. Our captain and dive masters were Matt, Josh, and Laiau (sp?). They were really funny, super chill, and very helpful. This was my first dive post certification and they made me feel really comfortable. They took care... More

Amazing experience diving and snorkling with the manta rays - the beautiful mantas put on an incredible show for both divers and snorklers. Capt Mike, Nick and Elise were great hosts/instructors who took good care of us and the boat was well set up for diving & snorkling . The hot chocolate after our time in the water was much... More

Big Island Divers is extremely professional. We did the manta ray night snorkel with Justin, Elise, and Jenna who were very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They made sure we had everything we needed and made the boat ride out and back pleasant. We also saw several mantas and were able to get some great video/photos.

We did a night Manta Ray dive with the Big Island Divers. It was amazing! The set up they have is outstanding and laid back, but very professional. You could tell that the group of guys that took us out knew what they were doing and have been doing it for a long time. They have tons of knowledge about... More

Well run, organized. Prepared for all of us. Wet suits that fit and kept us snug in the cold water. Great instructions and information about mantas.... and then the Mantas showed up and were beautiful to watch!! Hot chocolate and cookies offered to all after a cold but successful snorkel!

We did a combined dive/snorkel with the manta rays as well as I did two morning charters. The Manta Ray tour was absolutely beautiful and one of the best experiences ever. We saw humb back whales on the way to the dive site, there was a Hawaiian Monk Seal on the dive site and there were approximately 15 Manta rays.... More

Absolutely a fantastic trip! Capt Ryan, Greg, and Doug were fantastic. Able to see dolphins but they ran off as soon as we got in the water. Instead we chased a humpback whale and watched it breach four times. The crew stayed out longer to give us value.
