Manta Ray Night Snorkel

Manta Ray Swim

Highly recommended! Captain and crew were very knowledgeable about the manta rays. The entire experience was amazing! The rays were around us the entire time along with a bunch of other fish!

Fantastic Life Experience

Wow! What a wonderful and exciting experience. We got to see the manta rays up close and personal, they glide right up to you, majestic and intriguing animals! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Experience of a Lifetime

One of the most surreal wildlife encounters... we were literally surrounded by multiple manta rays. Just an incredible experience and Hawaii Island and Ocean Tours was a great company to do it with.

Morning Snorkel

The Most Unforgettable Experience

We booked the morning snorkel trip at Captain Cook and had the most unforgettable experience. Not only did we snorkel there, we also swam with dolphins, whale searched, and was educated on local history from local people. Wonderful family owned small business.

A Great Time

Went on this excursion with my wife and granddaughter and we had a great time. I think this excursion was the highlight of the trip for her. We went to very secluded snorkeling site with an amazing variety of sea life. Absolutely amazing.

Trip Defining Experience

I can not imagine a better way to have started our trip. This tour is so different than other companies because it is very personal. Leanne and Johnny and passionate, kind-hearted people. They really made the whole experience felt like going spending a day with family.

Dolphin Encounter

10/10 Would Snorkel Again!

We had an awesome full day adventure. The dolphins were amazing and the snorkeling at Captain Cook was excellent. Both captains were very knowledgeable and clearly love Hawaii and the ocean.

Johnny took us by the dolphins and was very conscientious about treating the dolphins correctly (not getting too close with the boat, how to swim when they are close, etc) - much better than many of the other tour groups in the area! Would highly recommend!

Great Experience!

We had an amazing experience with the mantas, dolphins, and snorkeling the reef. Throughout, it was obvious that Johnny knew what he was doing and we were well cared for. I highly recommend booking with Hawaii Island & Ocean Tours.
