Hands down the best experience on the Big Island. It so was beautiful to watch these majestic creatures. The guides were great and made us feel safe. The boat ride was fun. They even had snacks and beverages for us. The whole experience was easy. At 50’ish, I consider myself an okay swimmer and a novice snorkeler. I had no problem swimming out and holding onto the light bar. However, my arms were a bit fatigued afterwards. They give you pool noodles for your feet to help you float and relax. You are in the water for about 30 minutes. More than enough time to enjoy these creatures. They swim within inches of you. Just an amazing experience. I can’t thank the guides enough.

It was absolutely incredible. Finding out exactly where to go was maybe a tiny bit tricky but it certainly worked in the end. I really can't hate on this, but they could have made it easier to find where your boat was. I'm a boomer sorry. I don't want to spoil it so I will say nothing more. Man, the mantas are so fascinating.

We've done a bunch of tours on the island but this was one of our favorite. It wasn't the prettiest boat and the crew was limited, but it was certainly the most fun. I always felt safe, that the Skipper had my back in the water and he always knew where we were. The most manta's I've ever seen and certainly the largest who came right up to the top of the water and to our light!! Seven or eight different ones! The Captain and Skipper were a great team and we completely enjoyed ourselves! Thank you, Hang Loose! PS The Bluenose Whale that breached out of the water near us was a BONUS!! Christmas 2021! A year to remember! Bonnie & Dave, Boise, ID.
