A nighttime adventure that starts with a relaxing catamaran ride toward our manta ray snorkel site.
Discover Pawai Bay’s excellent variety of tropical reef fish and dramatic terrain, with ledges, caves, shallow shelves, and steep drop-offs, as well as coral-encrusted lava formations on this Afternoon Snorkel & Sail. Frequent visitors to this Big Island’s bay are manta rays (up to 10 feet across!), spotted eagle rays, and green sea turtles. Depths vary from three to four feet on the shallow ledges to blue water where the bottom disappears at 100 feet. Average is about 18 feet.
We specialize in non-swimmers and first time snorkelers, because we think everybody should get in the water and experience the beauty of Big Island snorkeling. We have excellent flotation devices, a wide assortment of quality silicone masks and snorkels (including prescription lens masks for the near sighted), rubber fins from size 0 to 14. Our first mate will give you a 7-10 minute instruction/demonstration on the use of the gear and dos and don’ts at Pawai Bay.
