Snorkelling at night can be very exciting. This snorkelling activity is actually my favourite type of snorkelling. The only other activity that you think can beat is the night dive as you have more chances to go deeper or the night snorkelling will still keep you pumping the same adrenaline.
The secret of night Manta Rays Snorkeling in Hawaii gives you a new look at your favourite snorkelling spot that may have lost its daytime charm. At first, you'll be a little worried everyone does, that's natural, but as you get used to it, you'll automatically replace your fear with excitement, curiosity, and a sense of adventure.

At night you'll find aquatic life that you rarely see during the day, which differentiates your vision from what you normally see during the day. At night the coral reefs come alive with a variety of fauna.
There are a number of aquatic biotas that cannot go out during the day. Nocturnal animals such as lobsters and shrimp become active and coral polyps open to forage at night, making coral reefs look blurry and colourful.
You'll also see luminescent microscopic plankton, which creates flashes of light when disturbed. When you have such an encounter, turn off your flashlight and move your hand in the water. It will give you an unforgettable experience because you will see “sparks” burning all around you. The sensation is amazing to try it, you will be surprised.
Safe snorkelling is a must, especially when diving at night. So make sure you are well equipped for the job before you go snorkelling at night. Unlike snorkelling during the day, snorkelling at night requires additional equipment and more thorough planning and preparation.
