The Sea Wolf is a zodiac-style boat (bench seating, open air) that is fast and fun, getting you quickly to the cove where the manta rays come out and providing a beautiful sunset view along the way... with the splashes and wind whipped hair to be expected from a trip on a smaller boat. This is like riding in a... More

Our family of 16 -from 3 to 70 something - went to this dolphin experience and it was just terrific. The Sea Wolf is a sturdy inflatable and the operation was just what the GRANDs loved. The provided snorkel gear was provided, the operator KNEW where to find dolphins - and all were in the water watch, skimming and LOVING... More

The captain and his sailor were both very friendly and helpful. Let me clarify a few things: you will NOT be floating around in the dark in the middle of the ocean. We almost didn't go because that's what we thought it would be. You stick close to the coast, there are lots of lights and you hang on to... More

Our family of 8 did the Manta Ray dive with Sea Wolf Charters. Overall we were pleased with their service. The boat is faster than the other boats who do Manta Ray dives which is great because you arrive back at the marina quickly. Our only negative is that the guides scream when the manta rays come to your board.... More

First, the manta experience is not to be missed. It is surreal experiencing the nighttime snorkel with the large mantas coming within inches of you. I loved that part, and I agree with another reviewer who said it's probably all the same when you're in the water. There are many boats who go out to the exact same mantas, and... More

We were on the boat with a small group (around 12 people) and we saw 1 Manta Ray. The captain (Bart) and crew all had a sense of humor and talked with the group while waiting for the sun to set. Soft drinks and chips were provided as well as hot chocolate after the snorkle. You hold on to a... More

My daughter and my husband did both the Manta Ray and the Dolphin snorkel. They can't stop talking about it. If you're in Kona and looking for an ocean adventure, this is the one to choose. They even had these teenage boys play the bagpipes on the way back to the dock. You won't be disappointed.

We did both the Manta and the Dolphin swim, and loved both. Captain Bart is very knowledgeable about the area, if you want to have the highest chance of seeing dolphins choose these guys. They are very effeceint about the use of the time, they get you out to the dolphins quick so you can enjoy as much time in... More

We went on the Manta Ray night tour with Sea Wolf Tour. The Manta Rays are fantastic but the Captian and crew really spoiled the experience. Expedia gladly refunded our money and I advise that you stear clear of these guys. They should have the bumper sticker - Get in, Sit Down, Shut Up and Hold On as their company... More
