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.

The staff was excellent on this trip, and their main focus was on safety, which was very important to me. Even though the boat was 3/4 full it certainly did not seem that way and the staff was always attentive and concerned. Food supplied was excellent, and in abundance. My only complaint was the lack of sea life we saw... More

Captain John and his crew were fabulously attentive in a laid back way. We appreciated their attention to making the day fun, safe and engaging for all ages. Snorkeling and swimming in the teal colored water was mesmerizing and delicious. Seeing a spinner dolphin up close to the boat and the first humpback whale of the season (not up close... More

We enjoyed the snorkel trip with body glove. The staff and boat were great! We enjoyed the cruise down the coast and saw many dolphins as promised. We stopped to snorkel and had a nice lunch and then had another round of snorkeling. The only thing that would have made the adventure better would be if we would have been... More

The crew are all excellent at their jobs. They are very attentive to your every need, always watching out to see if anyone is ok. It was my first time snorkeling and I felt very secure knowing that I was being constantly watched. My grand daughter went with me and she had the greatest time. She loved the floating devices...

Traveled with family for a snorkeling trip with Body Glove, and it was a superb experience. The crew were friendly, accommodating, and very thorough in the way they managed the entire trip!

We had a wonderful time on our snorkel trip. We saw whales and two types of dolphins, plus plenty of reef fish. The crew was amazing (that's actually an understatement) and we felt as if every need was taken care of. Captain John was knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and the sea life. Our party particularly enjoyed the focus on sustainability... More

This was an excellent excursion in Kona. The staff was amazing, especially Captain John. He kept us out a little longer so we could experience the first humpback whale of the season. It was such an awesome trip and I highly recommend it.

I recently wrote a scathing review of Body Glove Cruises out of Kialua-Kona. The weather was horrid and the ocean was choppy. We couldn't even leave our seats and the staff had to serve us our dinner from the buffet. Body Glove recently contacted the woman who purchased our 5 tickets. They said they received a very bad review and... More
