Manta Ray Night Dive is rated as one of the top 10 dives in the world.The dives took place off the coast of Kona, right next to the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort and Spa . The Manta could be observed from shore at the Keauhou Bay Resort at night. The powerful lights shining on the water from the Keauhou Bay Resort attracted the photoplankton which attracts the Manta Rays.To dive with the Mantas you can use use a commerical dive boat.I entered the water by the Keauhou Bay Resort cliffs.It reguire short swim around the cliffs.For easy exit in the dark,have flashlight on placed on the rock.The divers descend to the bottom of the ocean and hold bright lights to attract the Mantas. The Mantas will came quite close and sometimes touched me.It really is an unbelievable experience and should not be missed.
