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!

    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:

    STUNNING TO SEE…THANKS.

  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:

    great

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

  13. stephen lueckert says:

    wow

  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.

  19. john KENNEDY says:

    JUST A BEAUTIFUL THING TO SEE.

  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:

    nice

  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:

    Interesting

  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:

    cool

  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:

    I WONDER IF THERE IS A SIMILAR PLACE TO SEE MANTA’S IN THE CARRIBEAN?..

  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:

    OK

  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
