Manta Rays

After dinner at Manta, take a stroll down the stone path to Manta Ray Point and watch the nightly show as graceful manta rays “dance” in the spotlight. Tiny crustaceans called krill are attracted to the lights, which in turn attract the manta ray who feed on the krill. Manta Rays, or hahalua in Hawaiian, can reach wingspans of 30 feet yet seem like gentle giants as they turn in slow motion, gliding through the dark water along the shore. Learn more about exclusive Moonlight Manta adventures.
