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

My daughter and I booked this boat tour based on a friend's recommendation. We had a great time. We saw dolphins, lots of whales, and enjoyed snorkeling and paddle boarding in a beautiful cove. We also rented a go-pro underwater camera from them, which produced great pictures. The food was good, and the staff was fun and funny. My daughter's... More

The concierge set up the whale watching tour for me from the hotel so I didn't research myself but very pleasant surprise. The boat was excellent! Plenty of places to sit in sun and shade. Very clean! Bar tender was excellent as well as the narrator and the staff. Very organized and well worth the money. I would highly recommend... More

Ship, equipment and tour is pretty good. But as with all the "All-in-one" thing you get a bit of everything, but nothing is truly perfect. Personally I would go on a specialized tour next time. The male staff looks like the all failed at the Jersey Shore MTV Show...

Aloha rblaettler, We just got done with the gym, and our laundry. Good thing we all work on a boat, or else we wouldn't get any tanning done doing three trips a day! We, first and foremost, run a snorkel in the AM. SNUBA and SCUBA dives are adjunctive features, and are both aimed at those who want to experience... More

I went on this cruise my last weekend in Hawaii with a group of friends that live in Hawaii. As the only visitor and non swimmer, I was a little hesitant to go, but my friends wanted me to snorkel before I left the island. The crew of the Body Glove was unbelievably amazing. When I finally got into the... More

I have taken Body Glove three times, once for whale watching and twice for snorkeling. Their boats are clean, roomy and their crews are professional, friendly and attentive. With the morning snorkel tour you get a continental breakfast and lunch, and about 2-21/2 hours in the water. There is a cash bar available also. They keep an eye out for... More

The cruse was very fun! The Hawaiian narrator was excellent with so much interesting information. She even did a dance, the live entertainment was wonderful! The sound system could be improved, it was very hard to understand much of the narration. The food was great!

The staff was amazing, right from the moment we stepped onto the boat. My kids were very well taken care of, making for a relaxing trip from my husband and me. We saw bottle nose dolphins just as we left the pier, and had numerous whale sightings on the way to and from our snorkel location. The crew kept us... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our snorkeling trip on March 10, 2015 and our sunset dinner cruise on March 12, 2015. This was the first wheelchair accessible dive boat we have encountered.

Thank you skipper JD and crew for a great whale watching day today (19th). The boat is great, two decks, stable with snacks and beverages. We managed to see several different groups heading south, then a mother whale and her new born. They were shy, but we got a glimpse. Great day out, thank you crew.
