Kona is renowned for its Manta Ray night dives and snorkeling adventures, and is home to over 300 individual Manta Rays. Experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get up close with these majestic creatures by booking your manta charter today!

Are Manta Ray sightings guaranteed?

You may see other companies offer a "Manta Guarantee" with your booking. We don't, but you get the same benefit. Why? Because we don't pretend to "guarantee" the presence of Manta Rays, only to explain later why this is misleading. This is an incredibly consistent wildlife encounter, with a sighting success rate of well over 90%. However, Manta Rays are wild animals that travel large areas of the marine environment, and it is not possible to guarantee sightings every night. Different tour operators may have slightly different variations, but the industry standard is to offer free standby spots on future manta charters. This is exactly what we do, we just don't like the misleading term "guarantee".


If you are one of our very few unlucky guests who does not get to see mantas on one of our Manta Ray night dive or snorkel charters, we do not offer a refund. We do, however, offer you the opportunity to go out with us again if we have space for you on another charter. This offer is good for as long as it takes, so if we can't make it happen on this vacation, it will still be available on your next trip to Kona. You are required to call our office within 48 hours of getting "skunked" so we can put a note on your past reservation that we have extended this offer to you. We do our very best to take great care of you when you come out with us to see Kona's famous Manta Rays...that's a guarantee!
