About Body Glove Cruises
Body Glove Cruises located in Kailua Kona, on Hawaii Island, offers premium snorkeling, historical dinner/sunset cruises and whale watching. 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. When you join us aboard our historical dinner cruise, you will be treated to informative and engaging historical narrative, live entertainment, a delicious Hawaiian Style meal, the first cocktail is on the house 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.

Our whole family loved the snorkel trip! We had two kiddos in our group and they loved the whole experience! They mean it when they say you only need to bring a towel! They had lots of reef safe sunscreen available for free and everything else you'd ever need (including prescription lense goggles!) The crew were all so nice, they had great attitudes and were very helpful. The drinks were great, the food was great, and the boat was beautiful! The captain was full of great info about the area and the sea life, he was also super friendly and personable. We saw two whales, a shark, a bunch of dolphins, and so much more. Oh, and the slide is a HIT! We will definitely book again on our next trip to Kona. Well done!

Aloha kickstartmyheart7, Wow, I have a smile on my face after reading your sweet, thoughtful review! Mahalo for your kind words! Two whales, a shark and a bunch of dolphins-phew, that's a trifecta that's hard to top! Good for you! We appreciate not only that you will be back, but also that you took the time to compliment our captain and crew! We think they're all awesome too! Can't wait to see you again in the near future! Take care!

We enjoyed the historical dinner cruise. The crew were all friendly and really made it a fun time for all. The historian on board did an excellent job telling the history of the island. When the captain found dolphins he kept the boat in the area long enough for us to enjoy their show as well! It was a fantastic evening and would highly recommend taking this cruise.

Top notch crew, really friendly and not pretending, always at hand to meet our needs. Kumu gave a great history lesson of the Big Island's Hawaiian culture, enthusiastic, loved her. Captain gave us an extra treat with a little whale watch time.

My family had an amazing time on the Sunset Dinner Cruise. There was great music, a really well done history presentation, ono food, and great views. A mom and baby humpback whale even showed up near the boat! After a delicious dinner and a ton of time in Kealakekua Bay, a bunch of dolphins swim around the boat. Pretty sweet! The staff was all super hospitable and were always there when we needed something (like maybe another awesome Blue Hawaiian). From Andrej in Reservations to the awesome on-board historian, to the great musician, to every single one of the bartenders, servers, and crew, everybody involved made sure we had a fantastic time. I asked around locally before I booked and all my friends said to go with Body Glove. They were so right! Highly recommend!
