Night Snorkeling with Manta Rays

With up to seven-meter (23-foot) wingspans, these majestic sea creatures feed on some of the sea's smallest organisms: zooplankton. Strap on a snorkel to watch them feed at night, doing slow, gape-mouthed barrel rolls as they swallow copepods, mysida shrimp and arrow worms. The two most popular sites—off Kona International Airport and near the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort—have suffered overcrowding lately, which is terrible for both mantas and the people who love them. As the state prepares new guidelines, conscientious visitors should vet boat tours carefully.
