Description

Paddle through the serene waters of Keahou Bay at night, looking for the graceful movement of stunning manta rays as they glide beneath your outrigger canoe. Team up with an experienced local guide for an evening excursion to discover the majesty of these incredible creatures.

Head to the western side of the Big Island to meet up with an experienced local who knows the best places to find giant manta rays, which can grow up to 15 feet (5 m) wide. Before you set off, learn a bit about your traditional mode of transport for the evening – a beautiful outrigger canoe styled after the same kinds used by Hawaiians for hundreds of years.

When you're ready, shove off from shore and paddle into the tranquil bay, using lights to draw in the plankton that manta rays love to feed on. Watch as they arrive, cruising into the illuminated waters under the propulsion of their powerful wings.

Get a closer look as you don a snorkel and jump into the water to witness their incredible movements from just a few feet away. When the rays have had their fill of plankton, climb back aboard your canoe and paddle back to shore, looking for the stars as they begin to twinkle in the night sky.
