We were trying to decide what our "big event" (i.e. pricey) would be in Hawaii (helicopter tour, cruise, etc.) and I'm so glad we picked the Body Glove Cruise. My husband and I took the cruise with our 2 sons aged 9 and 13. The service was fantastic. The staff was so engaged in ensuring we had a good time.... More

My wife and I went on your historical dinner cruise, and I have to say it was our favorite thing that we did while in Kona. The crew was great and the food was delicious. The historian, Kelina was very informative and friendly. We had a great time. We will definitely do it again if we get back to the... More

I joined this excursion while on the Pride of America cruise as I was looking for a relaxing and fun snorkel experience. I was not disappointed. Not only did I get to snorkel, but there was also a dive instructor on board - Mark Ryan. He was taking a couple who were certified down and was looking for 2 more... More

If you want to play in the water and hang out on the boat, this is the cruise for you. The crew was extremely helpful; really tried to make sure everyone was comfortable and safe and had everything necessary. Good activity for families with kids 8-12 years old, maybe. The crew provided noodles for anyone who wanted a little extra... More

Aloha kmstl, Wow! We feel here at Body Glove Cruises that this review would have been five-stars if you had only seen some of the exciting ocean life we see so regularly at our sites. Unfortunately, it is the wild, and the fish are free to swim where they please! It seems like all the other aspects of our cruise... More

We went on the morning snorkeling tour. The snorkeling area is relatively deep water but very clear so depth didn't matter. We didn't see whales on our trip but got a voucher to go back so we are planning to try the afternoon whale watching trip. The best part was the helpfulness of the crew. My husband managed to drop...

We did the historic sunset dinner cruise. It's a 3 hour trip down the coast to the Captain Cook monument and back. There is a naturalist on board giving information along the way, very informative. The music by LT Smooth was incredible. He's the bomb, hope his stuff is on iTunes! Food was good, crew was fabulous and the sunset... More

The body glove snorkeling/whale watching trip was the highlight of our vacation! The entire staff made the trip fun and kept us safe. We saw some beautiful humpback whales and dolphins on the way to and from our snorkeling destination, and we loved all of the colorful fish and coral we saw while snorkeling. Bartender Kendra made delicious drinks and... More

We did the whale watching tour. There were a lot of people on the boat, so it could have easily been a less than great time, but everyone on the boat was really calm (no screaming kids etc). What I really liked was the naturalist that they had on board talking about whales. He had a lot of really useful... More
