Content: This was a highlight for us! Seeing the mantarays at night while in the sea was a once in a lifetime experience! We got on a traditional Hawaiian canoe, went out at sea maybe 10 min away from shore and then jumped in the water. Our guide had very bright lights to attract the mantarays who were coming to feed so we got to be super close to them! A must do in Hawaii
