Not knowing exactly what to expect, my friend and I were positively surprised by this experience. While seeing the Manta Rays was incredible, what truly made this the full package deal was the crew. Specifically, Tanner, Bart, Keawe, Marc and Max were friendly, funny and overall great at what they do. It was clear that they are experienced; while keeping everyone safe, they were great at informing and entertaining us all.
We had a spectacular night seeing several Manta Rays and it is an unforgettable experience that we 100% recommend!!

This was a fantastic experience, the crew was engaging, safe and professional. The mantas were amazing. We got lucky and saw many on our night. They got so close to us over and over, one of them even did sceral summersaultsas if to say goodbye when we were heading back in.
Highly recommend if you're a comfortable swimmer (really a must for any snorkeling trip but especially one at night)and not afraid of large animals. (It is very safe but you be you and own your comfort zone)

Captain Kilani and his crew had more than a great, clean boat and lots of knowledge about the area and the sea life, they were attentive, safe, fun, humorous AND that’s before we got to swim with the Mantas. Watching multiple Mantas do flips in front of you as they glide through the water is one of the most calming and peaceful experiences I’ve ever had. Mahalo Captain Kilani! You lived up to your billing as the greatest Captain on the island.

Aloha! This is awesome! You're spot on, Captain Kalani is an incredible captain with so much experience and a deep knowledge and respect for Hawaiian culture, language, mo'olelo (stories, history). We're glad to hear that you had an amazing time adventuring with us. Thank you for appreciating the hard work of our captain and crew. Their effort sets our experience apart from the other providers out there, for sure. Mahalo - The Kona Style Ohana.

Amazing experience! It's impossible to imagine how huge these Manta Rays are until you actually see them close up, which is exactly what I got to do. These beautiful creatures glide gracefully within inches of you. It was really a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Don't miss this. Beautiful clean, modern boat. The crew was very friendly, helpful and professional. Free drinks and snacks. All snorkeling gear provided, I didn't need to bring a thing except a towel. I felt safe at all times. Some other people brought very young children who had a great time as well. If you're in Hawaii, don't miss this. Our captain made sure that he put us on the big fish and stayed longer than other boats out there and got to see action that the other boats didn't get to see. It was incredible.

Wow! Thank you so much for this detailed review! We're thrilled that you had a great time snorkeling with us. The manta rays are magical creatures that you need to experience to believe. We love learning what our guests take away from an adventure with Kona Style - which aspects were important enough to be memorable. The mantas (of course), the refreshments, the gear, the staff, the safety, the vessel. We regularly work hard to reevaluate the experience and refine things where we can. The crew will be energized to know that you appreciated their professionalism and hospitality. Mahalo for choosing Kona Style! Aloha - The Kona Style Ohana.

We went on the late night tour where we saw manta rays and bioluminescent plankton. Kona style had a great setup and provided all the gear we needed. We would highly recommend their services for couples, groups or families.

This snorkel adventure was truly amazing. The Manta Rays come right up to you, you spend a good amount of time in the water, the crew was very professional and fun (shout out to Doug for singing along to “Down Under”). Would highly recommend and we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Hi Christopher! We appreciate the 5-star review! We always love hearing that our guests enjoyed snorkeling with the manta rays. As wild animals, it is always a bit of a gamble, but we do everything we can to better our odds of getting a great manta ray viewing! The time can pass so quickly when you're having fun. We will share your appreciation with the crew. They're an incredible group, and Doug is often a standout with his shenanigans! Mahalo for joining us - The Kona Style Ohana.

WOW!! Incredible experience with incredible people! I cannot say enough good things about KonaStyle. We weren’t sure if we were going to make it to Hawaii in time for our late night snorkel adventure (due to COVID test delays). The team responded via email very quickly and we created a backup plan for another night. However, it all worked out and we went on the original trip. They were so accommodating, a perfect model of true aloha.

The late night snorkel was an unbelievable experience that I highly recommend! Everything from the crew to the safety considerations, the music, and the actual encounter with the mantas was amazing! My kids are 11, 12 and LOVED it. My oldest is like a fish so he had no problem floating with us and enjoying the beautiful sea life. My youngest was hesitant so she watched from the boat and got to see the mantas from above. The boat ride was smooth, safe, and the music put us in a dancing mood. The crew spent 1:1 time talking with my kids, trading stories, and teaching them all kinds of things.

What's not to love about this review!? We certainly try to accomodate the unexpected for our guests. Hawaiian vacations are a dream (and a rarity) for most visiting families, so we do our best to work with you through the logistical hiccups. This is so much easier to do when you communicate with us early and often and we are very appreciative that you did that! Thank you for trusting us with the safety and enjoyment of your family. We're glad that you had tons of fun and like everything about what we have to offer! Hopefully your daughter will be ready to jump in with you and the mantas during your next visit! Aloha - The Kona Style Ohana.

This was a great trip and a must do if you are visiting the big island. The staff of Kona Style was very knowledgeable and friendly. While it was scary being in the ocean at night, the staff did a good job of making sure everyone was safe and enjoying themselves. The Manta Rays are an amazing sight to witness up close. One even tapped me with it’s fin. I highly recommend this excusing and taking the dive with Kona Style to do it.

Hi Lexxc! Thank you so much for your endorsement! We're delighted that you had a great time snorkeling with the manta rays and spending time with our crew! You're right, it can be scary snorkeling at night, but getting to see the manta rays makes it so worth it! Mahalo for choosing to adventure with us - The KONASTYLE Ohana.

I was able to do this excursion twice (once with work and once with my wife). The boat is great, smaller than some of the giant excursions, with great service. First night was Caption Scott, second night was Caption Justin. Both were prefect with information, safety and still allowing some fun. The crew (Doug, Bart, Dustin) also great. Service was wonderful, the bad manta puns were funny, and the experience was amazing. The mantas are a bucket list experience, and this boat is the best way to do it.

I also did the snorkel with them, and after 3 days on the boat thought I could apply to join the crew! They were wonderful on the snorkel as well (again with Captain Justin, with Doug and Brittney as the crew). Class acts all the way.

We used Kona Style for both the Manta Ray Night Snorkel as well as the Captain Cook day trip. Both times the crew was awesome. Captain Tanner was informative and did a great job anchoring our boat in rough waters for the manta snorkel. Would highly recommend! Both of our excursions were fantastic.

Thank you, Casey, for this great review! We deeply appreciate that you booked with us for both of our flagship adventures. We would like to mention that we don't physically drop anchor at any of our destinations. If we cannot tie to an existing mooring, then we motor in place. Preserving the reef and Hawaii's other beautiful resources is a pillar of our operation. Mahalo for joining us! Aloha - The Kona Style Ohana.
