When the owner of the finest collection of Kauai vacation rentals takes to the water, there’s no telling what sea creatures he may encounter. While recently paddle boarding off the Poipu Beach coastline, JP Parrish filmed three manta rays following him. These gentle fish are a sight to behold as you will see in one of our newest Kauai videos.
Winter is the best season to view these graceful sea residents on your Kauai vacation. No matter when you visit, our featured guide to Kauai snorkeling will be useful to locating the best Kauai beaches to see a variety tropical fish. Now we invite you to sit back and watch these peaceful giants of the sea.
Manta Rays Have a Life Span of 50-100 Years.
They also can be up to 8 feet across and weigh several hundred pounds. Manta Rays maneuver beautifully and pose no danger. Because they are fish and don’t breath air, Mantas use their gills to respire underwater. Manta rays must keep moving in order to keep water flowing over their gills.
Learning more about the manta ray is vital to provide them with effective protection. Manta rays have the largest brain of all the world’s fishes. Marine biologists are still learning about their intelligence, curiosity and social interactions.
Kauai Snorkeling Suggestions.
Our guest concierge can recommend the best Kauai beaches for snorkeling, which changes based on the season you are here. During summer, Tunnels Beach is the premier Kauai snorkeling destination near our Haena rentals on the North Shore. This two-mile long white sand beach has spectacular views of Mount Makana which was Bali Hai in the movie South Pacific. In the winter you can try Lawai Beach at Poipu which sits next to the famous Beach House restaurant.
Whenever you plan your Kauai vacation, we look forward to welcoming you to one of the world’s most beautiful islands.
