Wildcard

Viewing Manta Rays at Manta Village in Keauhou Bay Manta Village, offshore in front of the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort & Spa, is the most consistent ray viewing site in Hawaii. Lights from the resort originally attracted manta rays to the plankton-filled waters. Today, visitors can still spot rays from the resort’s Rays on the Bay restaurant. To see the rays up close, join a night tour and snorkel or dive with the rays that come to feed on the plankton attracted by the boat’s lights.
