Big Island Day 4: Snorkeling at Kapoho Tidepools & Swimming with Manta Ray

This was our last day at the East side of the island. Early in the morning we took time to dip in the Kapoho tide pools again before we left to Kona.
Our launching spot

They couldn't wait to get in and explore God's beautiful underwater world.


Stopping by to have lunch at Pahoa Fresh Fish 

The fish were fresh catch of the day.
The boys were knocked out during the 2 hours drive, which is good because we want them to be well rested before swimming with Manta that night.

On the boat to the Manta's spot. We chose this company because they allow children under seven.

Basically they have this raft that we are holding on to; equipped with blue light that attract plankton, which is what the Manta eat.

The Mantas were so close. I was tempted to tickle its belly.

More mantas joined the party
