Hang Loose Tours staff was awesome! They made sure everyone was safe and that the animals were not harmed!
A must-do!

Seeing the manta rays was truly a once in a lifetime experience. The only thing that made the experience not 10/10, was the fact that there were a lot of inexperienced swimmers screaming and kicking when the mantas came. However, the staff was amazing at handling the situation - and we even got to see dolphins!!
Absolute MUST in Kona

This is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in all the trips to Hawaii. Charlie and the entire crew are so knowledgeable and friendly. They make the experience so fun and safe. The mantas are so gentle and majestic - they come within INCHES of you during the dive! This is a MUST for anyone who wants to get up close and personal with some beautiful wildlife!
One of the best things you could do on vacation

Watching the manta rays eating the phytoplankton and being able to see all the way down their throats was incredible. Such a wonderful experience and I’d highly recommend to anyone who is interested in marine life.
Amazing Experience!

Such an amazing...

Such an amazing experience! The guides were very knowledgeable about the area and the mantas. Their boat also has a warm shower when you are done! My son and I went in November and while the water wasn’t too cold, the warm shower definitely helped. I highly recommend this company over the small little boat companies.
