Loved my time in Kona June 8-18. The beaches and snorkeling in Kona were amazing! All of the island was so great, the botanical gardens in Hilo, the beaches North of Kona (Hapuna Beach) the snorkeling south of Kona (Place of Refuge and Capt. Cook), wonderful restaurants (Fosters, Huggos, and The Bamboo.) The

Great day on the catamaran, and the snorkeling was fantastic. Great crew, Captain Kolani has wonderful stories about his native land. I would highly recommend this day trip, sun or no sun.

We did both the night Manta cruise and Kealakekua (Capt Cook) snorkel cruise with Kona Style and Capt Kalani. He’s also a teacher of Hawaiian culture, so he provides amazing, detailed insight into significant Hawaiian and geolologic history and sites. Seeing the peaceful, giant mantas emerge from the dark and practically kiss us
was exhilarating. The snorkeling was the best we’ve had in Hawaii. Spinner dolphins flew and surfed off our hulls on the evening cruise to the mantas and bottlenose dolphins spy hopped and surfed with us on the way back from snorkeling. Kalani backed us into one sacred cave where the Kahunas gathered and another with billy goats and parrots. The boat is so well set up, awesome staircase to enter the water, cold drinks on both cruises, light breakfast and great coffee in the morning and build your own sandwiches in the afternoon. And the entire crew was ON IT, friendly, engaged, happy, and professional. Two of the best cruises EVER. Literally could not have been better.

I was scared to try this but the crew put me right to ease and we had a wonderful time. One of the crew hung out with us in the water singing Hawaiian songs to us while we waited for the mantas to come. The boat was gorgeous and so well maintained. The crew was friendly and super helpful. This was a memory of a lifetime! Thank you

Thank you all so much for a fabulous snorkeling trip. The captain and crew were wonderful. It was very professional but we felt relaxed at the same time. One of the crew even joined us in the water to help us get the best views. They were great hosts and lunch was delightful.
I rate them 100%+. I recommend them without reservation and look forward to returning one day soon!!!
