Night Dive with Manta Rays in Hawaii

Manta Rays at Night: Hawaiian Adventure Part 2

As you learned from the previous article, we were recently on a Hawaiian Adventure with our RokPak Pioneer Series. The team here at RokPak loves to go outdoors, explore and participate in all that a place has to offer. Let the stories continue of our adventures and how the RokPak played a crucial role in those Hawaiian Adventures.

Night Dive with the Manta Rays

This adventure started with us arriving to the marina at dusk, so our ride out to the secret spot was a beautiful one with the sun setting over the horizon. The sky quickly became dark and we arrived at the cove where there were several other boats (ok not so secret). Some people decided to snorkel while others put on their dive gear. The water at this spot is only about 20-30 feet depending on the spot, but the whole area is swimming with Manta Rays. Seeing these creatures up close and personal is truly a breathtaking experience. They come within an inch of you and can be up to 23 feet wide! Manta Rays are filter feeders, so there is no concern for them to attack you. In fact, everyone had lights and even surfboards with lights on the bottom. The light attracts the zooplankton creating a feast for the Manta Rays.

Now, on the ride out we were prepared this time. Phones and underwater cameras fully charged to catch every moment of this experience. The RokPak was coming on this voyage as a backup power source and watertight location for keys and wallets. This was a group excursion and we overheard some others saying they forgot to charge their camera and were disappointed almost to the point of tears. This being a once in a lifetime experience, we couldn’t stand by. RokPak to the rescue!

We showed the couple the RokPak and told them what it could do. After they got out their charging cable and plugged in, their waterproof camera was charging. In fact, it was almost fully recharged by the time we got to the cove where we saw the amazing creatures. After the excursion was over they thanked us about 100 times, but it was not necessary. They even shared some of the amazing photos of the Manta Rays with us. The picture of the Manta Rays at the beginning of this article would not have been possible without the RokPak.  Even with giving them the RokPak to charge their waterproof camera we still had plenty of battery left to get us through the rest of our night.

Our company is all about promoting goodwill and helping others where we can. If there is an opportunity to do so, we will. So when you decide to get your RokPak you become part of our family. We truly care about our customers and want to make every experience they have the best it can be. There are a few more stories about this particular adventure coming soon, so make sure to subscribe to our blog posts so you can hear about how the RokPak Pioneer Series really helped us out while checking out the volcanoes on our Hawaiian adventure. Aloha until the next post. Keep on exploring and enjoying the outdoors!

  2. Jim says:

    Great to protect against water damage!

  3. Gary says:

    That was a wonderful thing to do!

  4. Okay you’ve convinced me. RokPak may well be your most important piece of survival gear.

  5. Ryan says:

    Sounds fun

  6. Herbert Broughton says:

    Good to have I.C.E.

  7. gunner miller says:

    Waterproof cameras, yet my phone dies if I sneeze near it. In many countries phones are required to be water resistant, like cheap watches.

  8. john KENNEDY says:


  9. Stephen Hamm says:

    That looks like fun. I’ve seen manta rays before, but not this up close. It looks like a heavy duty powerpack is really called for here. Cheers to RokPak and a water proof power pack.

  10. Steve Grant says:

    Rokpak to the rescue! It was nice that you were able to share your Rokpak with the other people on your incredible trip. I bet they will be customers and will tell their friends.

  11. Joe Burba says:


  12. The RokPak Pioneer Series is truly a go anywhere solar charger.

  13. stephen lueckert says:


  14. gunner miller says:

    A great reason why Ropak is just not for life saving emergencies, but quality of trip emergencies

  15. Herbert Broughton says:

    Good to have I.C.E. gear.

  16. Jonathon Harp says:

    This is awesome looking!

  17. Joe Burba says:

    never been there but i’d like to

  18. Mark says:

    I caught a about a 1-foot stingray fishing here in Florida and I went to take him off the hook and he stung me in my pinky finger. It stung for at least 3 hours, Very painful
    ” Unbearable”. Soaked hand in hot water to distribute and thin out poison, felt better about 45 minutes later.

  20. Gah8's says:

    As a Scuba Diver I have been around Rays in Monterey Cal. BUT never dived in such clear warm water as around Hawaii. Someday maybe I will be able to visit.

  21. I am a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor. Having a great drybox/charger would be a real asset. I already have USB battery chargers that I could hook up to a RokPak Pioneer. This would allow me to always have fully charged batteries for my dive lights. What a great advantage.

  22. stephen lueckert says:


  23. Herbert Broughton says:

    Always good to have I.C.E.

  24. gunner miller says:

    Very flexible in its usages. I like that.

  25. Matt says:


  26. Joe Burba says:

    manta rays at night look cool

  27. Imaginative, Innovative and Ingenious. Get RokPak and Rok your outdoor world.

  28. stephen lueckert says:


  29. Herbert Broughton says:

    I.C.E. it’s nice to have.

  30. gunner miller says:

    A useful tool for good times and bed…hopefully the good times out number the bad.

  31. john KENNEDY says:


  32. jana says:

    This is amazing. My husband got to swim with the rays in Mexico.

  33. Joe Burba says:

    I want to win

  34. Stephen Hamm says:

    I have thought about this, and YES I hope I can grab the RokPak I hope to win here, head tl Hawaii and go do this.

  35. Ryan says:

    Would be fun to take snorkeling

  36. stephen lueckert says:


  37. Herbert Broughton says:

    When it’s an emergency, it’s good to have.

  38. gunner miller says:

    With the cost of solar panels getting so low, items like this will become part of your basic kit.

  39. Mark says:

    Hawaii has always been a dream getaway for me Maybe someday

  40. The coolest solar charger available. Get a RokPak.

  41. Herbert Broughton says:

    Backup power I.C.E.

  42. Jonathon Harp says:

    Wish I could do this

  43. Gear that’s necessary

  44. gunner miller says:

    This would also be good to put a battery charging device loaded with AA or AAA batteries in the compartment and charge them as you walk. Sadly not all devices have built in chargeable batteries. I know my small LED flashlight would work well with this.

  45. Herbert Broughton says:

    Same blog post since April 26th… what can I say that I haven’t said? Good to have I.C.E.

  46. Joe Burba says:

    i really want to win a trip to Hawii

  47. john KENNEDY says:

    Apparently these Manta’s don’t migrate, they stay is the same area always , and many have been named by the locals. Very cool…thanks for showing this potential trip

  48. Revolutionary RokPak chargers are outstanding outdoors.

  49. Herbert Broughton says:

    Still haven’t changed Blog posts…

  50. Aaron says:


  51. Great solar charger and dry box.

  52. Herbert Broughton says:

    Still no new Blog post…

  53. gunner miller says:

    A good item for this device would be rubber stoppers on the USB holes in the device. This would keep any grit or other detritus from getting in them from a dirty GPS device or radio for example. Like the ones often found covering the holes on phones.

  54. Jonathon Harp says:

    How submersive is this?

  55. Powerful, personal, portable, power, RokPak

  56. gunner miller says:

    When I win this, see what I did there, I will put it to good use as I almost always have one or two electronic devices going at the same time.

  57. Joe Burba says:

    I want to dive with the rays

  58. Herbert Broughton says:

    Still no new post?

  59. Rok my day, Rok my night, I know with RokPak It’ll be alright. I got the power.

  60. Matt says:

    I love all of the different uses your product line has. It really makes you think outside the box as to what is possible.

  61. gunner miller says:

    I think the best selling point is the case. Dropping something electronic should not be a main worry.

  62. Joe Burba says:

    night diving in Hawaii with the mantas would be great

  63. The RokPak Pioneer Series is THE outdoor solar power solution.

  64. gunner miller says:

    My wife wants one simply because of the case it is mounted in.

  65. john KENNEDY says:


  66. Joe Burba says:

    Hawaii would be a great place to visit

  67. Amir says:

    good trip

  68. Aaron says:


  69. Jonathon Harp says:

    Awesome story

  70. gunner miller says:

    I like how smaller electronics can be saved in the container like usb sticks and such. very useful

  71. Joe Burba says:


  72. gunner miller says:

    Thanks for the chance to win such a nice item.

  73. john KENNEDY says:


  74. Joe Burba says:

    winning a trip to Hawaii would be awesome

  75. RokPak Pioneer chargers are the outdoor solution

  76. gunner miller says:

    When I was younger solar power items were ether cheaply made or overly prices. Now you have a good combination here.

  77. Matt says:

    My wife and I swam with rays on a cruise a few years ago. Unique experience for sure.

  78. Go anywhere, anytime with confidence knowing that you will always have power for your electronics.

  79. gunner miller says:

    I do hope the lights are replaceable and not a sealed unit.

  80. Herbert Broughton says:

    Steve Irwin got stung by a stingray,,, better have RokPaq I.C.E.

  81. Jonathon Harp says:

    Can’t wait

  82. Stephen Hamm says:

    The more I have thought about this, the more I want to do it!

  83. RokPak is the one and only solution that you’ll ever need for outdoor power.

  84. Joe Burba says:

    Ireally really want to win

  85. gunner miller says:

    I’m more surprised there are not more kits like this out there. The small folders seem nice, but have never seemed rugged to me.

  86. Rokpak is a great, go anywhere, portable, waterproof, rugged, solar charger for all outdoor environments.

  87. gunner miller says:

    I hear that some solar panels lose capacities over time. Is that a worry?

  88. RokPak Pioneer series is THE portable power solution.

  89. Joe Gaydosh says:

    This is the gadget I want with me on my dive trips.

  90. Joe Burba says:

    oh wow

  95. An amazing and innovative dry box and solar charger

  96. Brianna Cavins says:

    OMG that is such an amazing shot! I’m dying to go to Hawaii!!

  97. Herbert Broughton says:

    A manta ray killed the Crocodile Hunter… better get a RoqPak!

  98. gunner miller says:

    An idea. Could you use this to charge of the new power banks that I have seen so much of recently? This could increase the storage capacity even more.

  99. Buy a RokPak Pioneer Series charger. You’ll be glad that you did.

  100. Herbert Broughton says:

    Ever been to StingRay City in Grand Caymen? Make sure to take a RoqPak!

  101. gunner miller says:

    This is one of those common sense items people really need.

  102. You don’t have to be an outdoor enthusiast to need a RokPak charger. Have you heard about the shape of the US power grid?

  103. stephen lueckert says:

    lights out

  104. Herbert Broughton says:

    Rugged, waterproof, solar power… better get a RoqPak!

  105. Joe Burba says:

    woo hoo diving with the rays

  106. gunner miller says:
