The Manta Ray Swim is open to anyone with a spirit of adventure, can swim, and are comfortable in the ocean. Adults and children (ages 5+) are welcome. All guests need to be able to swim or stay afloat without assistance and it is advised to have some snorkeling experience.  Non-swimmers are not permitted on this charter for their safety, our crew’s safety, and courtesy to other guests onboard.  (Children (under 18) must be at least five years of age and demonstrate strong swimming ability and be accompanied by an adult at all times.) Everyone in your party must be able to converse in English for safety instructions, no exceptions.  This adventurous retired Navy Seal boat will have you off to see the mantas in no time.  This is an exciting, and sometimes bouncy time out on the water depending upon ocean conditions.  Sometimes the ocean is like glass and sometimes it has a bit more oomph to it, especially during the winter months. Your helpful, Lifeguard Certified, guide will provide all of the necessary equipment (including Rx masks) and keep you safe and happy on your adventure. If you’re a new snorkeler, no worries!  Join us on a morning snorkel or an afternoon snorkel to practice!  You’ll be able to enjoy the manta ray experience that much more when you feel confident in your snorkeling skills.  A manta ray swim can be the crown jewel of your Kona, Hawaii vacation, a great bucket list conquest, and a fun outing for the whole family, don’t miss out!
