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.

Went whale watching and Denver the naturalist was extremely knowledgeable. He knew the islands and took all our questions. The boat was very nice and the crew ensures you stay hydrated. The snacks were ok, not great, but we were there for whales, which we saw right at the end of the cruise! Highly recommend!

After reading all the reviews on Body Glove my husband and I decided this was the best tour to go on for dolphin watching and snorkeling. The staff were nice, funny, and knowledgeable. My nine year old daughter even felt like she made a "friend" with Chanda, one of the staff members, because she was so sweet with her. There... More

If we didn't see a whale we would get a coupon for another trip so when heading into port in our last 10 minutes there appears a cow and calf. Saw a tail once and only the backside a couple times. Disappointing. Saving grace was the Great Naturalist who spoke during the trip. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. That... More

The crew aboard this boat was fantastic!! Super friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was great, but don't expect much from the breakfast. The snorkeling was average, but the slide was a hit with the kids.

The trip was amazing. The crew really took great care of my family. Bowley and Evan were awesome with my daughter in her car seat. I will definitely be doing this trip again.

We enjoyed our adventure. We saw a shark and we were able to admire this for a good 5-10 minutes the crew was great and the food was so much better than I expected. I will be doing this again with the family in the near future. I think I will take a different adventure since the body glove has... More

We did the sunset dinner cruise, leaves at 4 back at 7. Nice 2 deck boat and an extremely attentive staff. They serve snacks and very nice fresh fruit with free soft drinks both buffet style or served at your seat. Each participant gets one alcohol drink and the dinner buffet, which begins on arrival ath the Captain Cook bay... More
