    Snorkeling with the manta rays has been a organized encounter for nearly 30 years now in Kona and because of that, the manta rays have become conditioned where to go each night to get an easy meal. The average number of feeding rays per night averages between one and four but can easily exceed 10 or even more with an all time high one night in May 2008 of an unprecedented 36 rays on one night! Very seldom, less than 10% of the time, there is less than average (0). Odds this high can seldom be found with any wild animal encounter. Having nothing that bites and nothing that stings, viewing the manta rays is not only safe but can be considered one of the 7 wonders of the underwater world. Neptune Charlies has pioneered the easiest and most effective way to safely allow our snorkelers to get within inches of the manta rays- we use floating rings.

    THE PACIFIC MANTA RAY (Manta Alfredi) - The wing span of the near-shore Pacific Manta Ray averages 5 to 8 feet but can reach well over 14! They have no real teeth, no stinger, and a harmless disposition. Their only defense is to flee.

    These huge and gentle creatures feed on a food source of almost microscopic organisms called plankton, so Mantas must work very hard to get enough of this tiny food. At night, light attracts brine shrimp, a form of plankton that ray feed on. Using their cephalic fins like big scoops, they funnel water into their wide-open mouths and filter out these organisms.

    Neptune Charlie's Ocean Safari has over 10 years of experience on and in the waters of the Big Island of Hawaii, and they want to share these wonderful experiences with you so that you may enjoy what the ocean in Hawaii has to offer. They are  members of the Professional Association of Diving Instructors
    since 1977 and adhere to all PADI safety standards in our instructional and recreational dives.

    Their 2006 custom built luxury dive boat was built specifically for comfort and style. Aptly named, "The Manta", She is 40 ft. long and amazingly 15 ft. wide providing incredible stability both cruising to and from the dive site as well as sitting at anchor. She's also loaded with features such as; sundeck, shaded areas, oversized swim platform for ease of entry/exit, fresh water showers, camera tables and most importantly friendly and professional staff.
