Body Glove Cruises offers premium snorkeling, SCUBA, historical dinner/sunset cruises and whale watching in Kailua Kona on the Big Island of Hawai'i. On our Deluxe Morning Snorkel & Dolphin Adventure, we take you to an area of the Kona coast that is exclusive to our cruise company. There are over 600 different species of ocean life for you to admire in the waters off our shores. Wear your swimsuit and bring a towel, we will accommodate your every other need. We provide a continental breakfast, a BBQ lunch, snorkel gear, and reef-safe sun screen. Our vessel, The Kanoa II has fresh water showers, spacious restrooms, a high jump, and a water slide. Add to that a bar that serves the best Mai Tais around, and you can begin to feel just how many different ways there are to have the best day of your vacation right here. Our Historical Sunset Dinner Cruise has been voted the best dinner cruise on The Big Island for five consecutive years West Hawaii Today. Here you will be treated to informative and engaging historical narrative, live entertainment, an elaborate Hawaiian style BBQ buffet dinner, a free cocktail from our full-service bar and an amazing Pacific Ocean sunset. During winter months, from December to the beginning of April, we watch whales. Our naturalist is a wealth of information, and the humpbacks that visit our waters here are active. They sing, spout, spy-hop, and breach, and, in the rare circumstance that you do not see a whale with us, you can come again free. That's our guarantee.

Professional, friendly, crew with a safety first attitude. We encountered whales about 20 minutes into the cruise. Then followed them along the coast. They breached twice, so my best experience to date. Great snacks and drinks available. Excellent naturalist aboard that was like an encyclopedia...More

The crew was fabulous. The boat appeared brand new and was definitely spotless and attractive. Some of the food was very good and other food was OK. Nothing was bad.

We had a fantastic time spending the day on the gorgeous blue ocean. I would absolutely do this trip again. Me and my girlfriend couldn't find a more exciting way to spend our morning.

We went on the morning snorkeling trip and we had a blast! From the time we stepped on the boat we felt welcomed, comfortable and safe. Our crew was outstanding in their knowledge and personalities. We would highly recommend this experience.

The Bodyglove staff makes all the difference. We had a great time snorkeling with them. The location for the snorkling was adjusted to make sure we stayed away from the swell. Plan B turned out to be a lucky strike, mantas, turtles, Wales and much...More
