Manta Rays in Kona Hawaii

GREAT NEWS for the Mantas - Regulations are coming

by Martina Wing - Sunday, October 25, 2015

GREAT NEWS for our Kona Mantas: regulations are coming and have been long in the make.

A week ago the legal fellow from the Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) invited to meet with all manta boat operators and stakeholder. It was a great exchange of ideas and suggestions on how this unique industry can move towards a sustainable (I love that word!) future. As always, my team participated and it felt really good to see that the officials have “heard” us.

Over-capacity and questionable conduct of operators are the main problems the Manta Experience is dealing with, and ultimately the Mantas and the reef have paid a price for it.
