We had a great experience on our night Manta dive. There are two divers and one snorkeler in our group. They did an excellent job at setting up the experience for all of us. The trip from the harbor was nice and short. We even spotted a small whale on the way out. We arrived at the dive spot with a perfect amount of time to get set up and have the dive briefing. The Manta experience was amazing. At one point we had 11 surrounding us. What a sight to see. A thrill for both the divers and the snorkelers. We highly recommend the night Manta dive and Aquatic Life Divers.

Kona Big Island Adventure: Twilight Reef + Manta 2-Tank Dive Experience

Embark on our two-tank charters for an unforgettable dive experience, featuring the mesmerizing waters of Kona. Begin with a twilight reef dive, witnessing the transition of marine life as day turns into night. Then, prepare for the highlight of the journey: the epic manta ray dive in the depths of Kona's oceanic realm. As darkness descends, our dive lights attract plankton and feeding mantas, offering an unparalleled underwater spectacle.

Prerequisites: To join our charters, guests must hold an Open Water Diver certification and be able to communicate effectively in English with our crew. Junior Divers aged 10-11 or those with a "SCUBA Diver" certification are required to hire a private Divemaster due to specific depth restrictions. Divers who haven't been diving in the past two years may need to participate in a refresher course before joining us.

Prefer a more personalized experience? For those seeking a more intimate dive experience or extra time to observe marine life, consider hiring a private guide for you or your group. Contact our team for more information.

Included: We provide essential gear such as mask, fins, dive light, tanks, and weights. Full rental gear is available, although divers are encouraged to bring their own personal equipment. Additionally, we offer filtered water and a selection of snacks for your convenience.

Please Bring: Feel free to bring any additional snacks or non-alcoholic beverages you desire. Don't forget to pack dry towels and comfortable clothing for your journey back. Wear exposure protective clothing and use only non-aerosol reef-safe sunscreen. If you're unable to find reef-safe sunscreen locally, we have a variety of options available for purchase at our shop. Guests prone to motion sickness are advised to take anti-emetic medication like Bonine or Dramamine before boarding the boat.

Unlocking the Magic of Manta Rays in Kona: Our Policy Explained

While some companies may promise a "Manta Guarantee," we prefer to set realistic expectations. While Manta Ray sightings are incredibly consistent, with a success rate exceeding 90%, they remain wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed every night. Instead of false promises, we offer standby spots on future charters if you happen to miss out on a sighting.

For the rare occasions when guests don't encounter mantas on our Manta Ray night dive or snorkel charters, we don't offer refunds. However, we do extend the opportunity to join us on another charter within a year, ensuring you'll have another chance to witness these majestic creatures. Just give us a call within 48 hours of your "unlucky" experience, and we'll make sure you're taken care of on your next visit to Kona.

At Aquatic Life Divers, we prioritize honesty and customer satisfaction. While we can't guarantee manta sightings, we guarantee our commitment to providing you with an unforgettable experience in Kona's waters. Explore the enchanting underwater world of the Big Island with us today!
