We lucked out. Nice sunset after several tours were canceled that day. They provide shirt wetsuits and I had a swim shirt on. Great guides. We were told not to touch the rays. But what if they touch us!... Magnificent to see the wide open mouths and the undersides of the rays. Sometimes they were so close your eyes crossed! We probably wont' ever get back to the Big Island so I only had this chance. My husband road on the boat but didn't snorkel. He was not alone. This was suggested by a friend and the office was across the street from us so it worked out great.


Great experience, we saw so many Manta rays, non-stop for the entire hour in the water. Kona Style is a great boat, very clean and well organized. Wonderful captain and crew were all very personable, professional, and knowledgeable. Watching dolphins and the sunset on the ride out. Hot chocolate and other drinks were served on the way back. Would highly recommend Kona Style.


Awesome trip. Capt Tanner and the crew were great. Kids and I were able to see 10 plus Manta’s. Boat ride was smooth, gear was great. Mahalo!!


These folks are great! Did 2 trips with them; the night manta snorkel and the day snorkel @ Captain Cook. Everything about it was first rate. Highly recommend Konastyle if you are looking for a fun well run tour.


Captain Tanner and crew were fantastic and welcoming. We were treated to a close encounter with so many awesomely beautiful mantas - truly a once in a lifetime experience! Highly recommend.


Saw 7 manta rays at once and a lot more throughout the tour. Friendly staff and great experience! Definitely one of the top experiences on the big island.


This was our third time going with Kona Style. We did the day snorkeling as well as the manta snorkeling. The crew is AMAZING!! They all are so kind and helpful and want to make sure you have a great fun experience . Book it, you won’t regret it.


What better way is there to spend the winter solstice than floating above the reef, watching the underwater acrobatics of gentle ocean giants as they feed? Nothing compares to the experience we had tonight. We booked the Late Night Manta Ray Snorkel for our family of four and all the usual descriptors fall short. Amazing, incredible, epic. We were incredibly blessed as we were able to see 5 Manta rays up close and personal as they did feeding maneuvers within inches of us! The crew that accompanied us on the lighted hand raft (technical term escapes me) were very informative about the local Manta rays, their physiology and habits. Captain Dan and his crew were very knowledgeable, courteous and helpful. Our experience aboard the Noa Noa was stellar, and the music selection was the cherry on top of the whole adventure. If you're on the fence about booking a Manta Ray tour, don't let the opportunity slip by. This is the experience of a life time.


What a frickin amazing time! The crew was amazing from start to finish. Would go again, it was that good. Highly highly recommend


These guys are THEEE best. Everyone was super sweet and helpful. You can truly truly see how much they enjoy what they do. They give you snacks and have drinks available as well which are delicious! I am terrified of open water and not a strong swimmer at all. I have been working hard to get over this fear but it’s definitely still there. We went snorkeling with Kona Style and today went to see the manta rays. Both times I was the last one to jump in and second guessing myself at the end but Tanner and Dora were so sweet in encouraging me and pushing me just enough to not miss out on this beautiful experience. Captain Dan was the sweetest and had the best humor. I absolutely recommend Kona style to everyone, especially if you’re just as nervous as I am. They will make sure to get you out there to have the time of your life. Thank you for making this once in a lifetime experience one that I will never forget. Mahalo Piha! -Ashley & Tim 🩷
