“Body Glove Sunset Dinner Cruise in Kona Hawaii”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Four of us took the Body Glove Sunset Dinner Cruise and we loved it. The crew was so nice and helpful. We were able to enjoy a Grammy award winning Hawaiian guitar player/singer that was excellent. He even handed the guitar over to our friend to play two songs while he ate, which was a lot of fun. The dinner was good and sunsets were beautiful.

We even got to see whales and dolphins, which was a bonus.

The only downfall was that we were on the top deck and there are no tables so you have to hold your plate on your lap. They said that they are correcting this and updating things and soon the top deck will also have tables.

Aloha Tia D:

We will pass your comments along to L.T. Smooth! He is such a talent-- and he loves to know that he has made anyone's time on one of our Historical Sunset Cruises more memorable. So cool that your friend got to stand in for him while he ate some Hawaiian BBQ!

As for the tables, like you already heard, we are adding some to our boat to make our guests that much more comfortable. We hope you have a chance to come again and enjoy the new ambiance. We've already installed new drink holders and posted a picture of a guest lounging worry-free of spillage :)

And whales, and dolphins? Awesome.

Thank you so much for writing this review Tia D!

“Great tour, lots of whales”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I couldn't believe how many whales we saw on this tour!! The staff was great, very friendly. The views were amazing, the ride was smooth, and did I mention the whales were everywhere? Nice boat very well maintained and comfortable.

Aloha Angie 6511:

The whales were so great to our Whale Watches this season! The fact that you had such a fantastic outing was exceptional for sure, but not as outside the norm as one would expect. So happy you all had such a great experience and were able to take the time to write about it here on TripAdvisor.

Your comfort on board the Kanoa II is very important to us. We are all very pleased to know we provided a level of comfort to you that met with your satisfaction. And our crew always appreciates the appreciation! They live to make certain everyone is having fun, and relaxing as they should be on a vacation here in Kailua Kona!

The only thing that would make us happier is to see you all again some day!

Mahalo,

Body Glove Cruises

“Relaxing day full of sea animals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We took a morning snorkeling tour during our vacation on the Big Island. Actually, I won a gift certificate in an auction so we only had to buy for our 3 boys. I was a bit worried as boats and I don't normally get along but the boat is big enough if I stayed on the upper deck everything was fine. We went out about 25 minutes to a spot to snorkel. I was impressed the Captain called us all together and gave us some signals and safety information before letting anyone in the water. Four of the five of us jumped in and started snorkeling. I can't say we really saw many fish though. We got back on board, took a turn down the slide (hold your nose or you get a brain wash) and then our kids floated around in the blue innertubes they have attached to the boat.

Why the title if we didn't see many fish? Well when we arrived we saw a glimpse of a manta ray. Then while eating my youngest spotted a baby shark swimming around the boat. We still had time on our tour so we went whale watching and caught site of two whales and then as we headed back to shore along the coast we boated with a pod of spinner dolphins for awhile. My husband and I lived in Hawaii for 5 years pre kids and never saw that many different animals!

Body Glove did a great job and was very professional. We would definitely use them again.

Aloha Eyeileen:

What a Snorkel you all got to enjoy! So thrilled the ocean was so giving to your cruise.

And good advice on going off the water slide! A holding of the nose is often warranted :)

We are happy to know you all received a gift certificate and decided to bring the whole gang. We love that you had such an exciting trip, and really appreciate your taking the time in posting about it here on TripAdvisor.

Yours,

Body Glove Cruises

“Whale of a good time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Took a whale watching cruise on a Body Glove excursion. Had a wonderful time! The crew was great and made a point of making sure we got to see the whales. They have a guarantee that if you don't see any you can come again for free but they are not slackers. We moved around to different areas so we could see a mom with a calf and we saw several others. Now they weren't jumping in the air like in the commercials but it was still a very cool experience. Captain Sharky, Mikey, Jeremy and Micky were a great crew and Denver, the naturalist was full of facts and stories. If you get a chance, go!!

“A good time was had by all”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

There were7 of us that went on this snorkel & snuba trip. Four adults and 3 teenagers and we had a blast. The crew was wonderful, and Mike, what a charactor you are. Mr. Muscle. The kids loved the Snuba. What an experience for them. We saw a manta ray on the way out, whales,dolfins swimming along with us, and while in the bay they saw a seal, and octopus. It was a fantastic day. This old grama even snorkled and had a great time too.

Aloha gramma:

These are the reviews we live for! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your great time with everyone here on TripAdvisor!

We will definitely pass along your compliments to Mike! He loves giving the love, and loves receiving it as well!

The fact that your kids had such a special experience during their SNUBA Dive is not a little touching. And Manta Rays? Dolphins? Whales? Octopi? Seals? What a trip!

Happy that grama had some fun snorkeling too :)

Hope to see you all again some time!

Mahalo,
