As an experienced diver, this was a poor experience. Short boat ride. The experience was totally contrived and crowded. Body to body people. Had to hold on to a board with half the boat, as well as hold a ridiculous noodle. After over they herd you back on to the boat. The only good things were the mantas. They were beautiful.

Unique and Unforgettable Experience

Great trip, but before the trip it would be helpful if the crew gave a step by step expectation and walk through from start to finish, especially how to use the noodle adjusting around the ankles and under the shoulder which needed guidance to master at first and can be challenging if learning in the water. Very friendly crew, good Manta sightings.

So amazing! We saw so many manta rays and very, very close! I would say the highlight of our vacation. Enjoyed it immensely. Even got to see some tuna and a few other fish/ reef sharks. This is definitely not to be missed!

WOW!!! I was on the fence about this experience, but my husband really wanted to go. I am so glad we did this! It was a little scary at first, but we soon relaxed and enjoyed the manta rays swimming right up to us (and even grazing us a few times!) Our guides, Jas and Tristan did a fantastic job and kept everyone safe and calm. This is a must do for the big island!

Absolutely amazing experience. From start to finish, we couldn’t have asked for a better excursion. All of the employees at Dolphin Excursions were top notch, and the mantas are a cannot miss opportunity when you are on the big island. Highly recommend for everyone visiting.
