We had the occasion to visit the Big Island in February. My mobility challenged parents were traveling with us. Body Glove is the only boat on the island that truly has handicapped accessibility. My dad was able to pull right out on the pier, and the staff was right there to help him every step of the way. The level... More

I have taken the body glove snorkeling tours 4 times now and I will be back! The entire crew is fantastic! A big shout out to Dana who made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond in all that she did for all of the passengers. She is so friendly and outgoing you can't help but like her.... More

This is one of those things that I never expected to improve from it's already amazing experience! My 11 year old daughter and I went on this boat two years ago. Since then this company has fine tuned the level of not only the snorkel experience, but customer satisfaction. It's the little things that the whole crew does for you... More

We went on a snorkel trip with Body Glove and what a wonderful time my family had. Our 3 kids ages 6, 3 and 3. This was their first time snorkeling off a boat, and they loved it! The crew of this boat was outstanding! I cannot compliment them enough... I wish i remembered all their names. From the minute... More

From the moment you board, you know why Body Glove was voted best cruise on the Big Island. The boat is spacious and comfortable, and the crew is friendly and knowledgeable. It was a pleasant boat ride with dolphins and whale sightings, including a mom and her calf. The snorkel spot was beautiful both above and below the water. The... More

My husband and our teenage daughter and friend took the snorkeling cruise. We booked it through the place we rented boogie boards from... When we booked we got four boogie boards at no charge for the week which was great. We were greeted at the dock and loaded onto the boat to a wonderful continental breakfast. The crew was very...

We enjoyed taking this ride to an area just south of Kona for snorkelling. They provided breakfast and lunch. They also provided all the snorkels, flippers, masks, noodles. We saw so many tropical fish only found in Hawaii, so pretty. Breakfast was continental and lunch was burgers. They also have a full liquor bar on board for purchase, a water... More
