Boat trip to see the Manta rays in Kona
The evening arrives, we head towards the marina of Kona where awaits us the boat which will take us to meet Manta rays. We've been waiting for this moment since the beginning of the stay, so we can't wait to approach these fascinating creatures!
For the excursion, we have selected Kona Ocean Adventures, a company that offers sea excursions with small groups. Without waiting, we were quickly taken care of and we boarded the boat that took us north.
Dozens of boats are already there. We put on our suits and we go down to the water. After a few strokes of fins, we hang onto the board. And that's where the show begins.
It's absolutely magical! The first Manta rays only take a few seconds to get close to us. They begin to form large loops in the water by swallowing all the plankton that is attracted by the light under the board.
The broom will last almost 40 minutes, during which the Manta rays will come to meet us until we're almost there. A moment to live at least once in your life!
