Outrigger Kona Resort & Spa
Manta ray viewing
The Kona Coast is one of the only places in the world where you can view giant manta rays up close. See these majestic creatures in Keauhou Bay right from our oceanfront resort when they come out to feed on plankton. You can also join a manta ray night snorkeling tour for an unforgettable Hawaiian experience.
Manta ray viewing and snorkel at dusk
Experience daily manta ray viewings at dusk at the Manta Center. The resort offers a unique vantage point for watching these breathtaking creatures in Keauhou Bay. Enjoy education talks at the Manta Center and learn about why the ocean currents and rich minerals attract the manta rays close to the Kona shore.
Manta ray night snorkeling tours
Join us for a night-time Manta ray adventure onboard Kini Kini, a 40 ft Hawaiian sailing canoe. Learn the myths, legends and facts about the Hahalua “Manta ray” from certified and licensed captain and crew before snorkeling within inches of the gentle creatures. This Manta ray adventure is a unique experience that you can only do on the Big Island, Hawaii. Just a 5-minute stroll from the resort, Eka canoe Adventures' point of departure is just a short boat ride out from Big Island’s most successful and consistent Manta ray viewing location.
