OMG do not pass up this experience! This was the coolest snorkel excursion ever! Giant manta rays in front of your face! Jacob and Adam were absolutely amazing. Their boat is very nice and has comfortable seating. They were friendly and knowledgeable. We felt very safe with them. We brought our 2 kiddos (6 & 7 yrs old) and they were very accommodating with them. They even helped them get back to the boat while mommy and daddy stayed a bit longer in the water to watch the rays. They had a bunch of snacks and drinks on board and asked several times if we wanted more. They fit everyone with wet suits before getting on the boat and they provide snorkels and masks as well, but we brought our own. Everything was in good condition too. Absolutely recommend!

Friendly, lively, and helpful crew and a great snorkel location. My kids were new to snorkeling and did great. My daughter lost a flipper which we had brought, and it didn’t float unfortunately. One of the crew dove and retrieved it! The boat ride out and back in was very enjoyable, and we had a dolphin swimming in front of the boat on the way back. It was a memorable experience. Snorkel gear is provided, but if you are bringing your own gear, keep in mind that full face masks are not allowed for safety reasons. We brought 2 and couldn’t use them.

This was an awesome experience and so cool to do in the dark. We saw at least 6 Manta Rays and they literally are right next to you swimming! The team was personable and helpful too. Be sure to bring a jacket or sweatshirt for ride back (which is suggested in the details). I would consider this a must do activity if you enjoy the water.

There’s not many words to describe this adventure..... This was a privilege and breathtaking at each turn!! The guide was awesome, knowledgeable, and you knew that Mark cared about the adventure he was taking you on. Must experience.

Very detailed tour of The Big Island. Guide was very flexible in what we saw and what options we had in doing so. Helped us get the most out of our tour. If information is what you're looking for, Awana is your guide.
