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.

They had excellent food for breakfast and lunch and even had many gluten free breads available for our gluten free member as long as you let them know in advance. We had our 1 year old and... More

We had a great time on this cruise. We enjoyed the scenic cruise to our snorkeling spot. We saw Spinner Dolphins swim right below the boat. The staff was very knowledgable and attentive. It was beautiful snorkeling and the crew kept a watchful eye on all. They served blueberry loaf and fruit for breakfast & burgers for lunch. The food... More

Staff was fantastic. Food was decent but would have liked another option. Bar had a lot more selections than I anticipated. Live music was amazing. Enjoyed the cruise overall.

We went on this tour with our two sons, 11 & 17. We really enjoyed the ride to the snorkeling spot, it was very relaxing with a simple breakfast. One really cool experience on the ride was the spinner dolphins on the way out to the snorkel site. The captain stopped for everyone to look and that was enjoyable.The staff... More

Aloha Alyssa! We don't know how it could come to such a misunderstanding. We have 150 coast guard approved life jackets on board, that number is higher than the actual number of passengers we take. Someone must have given you very wrong information. The snorkeling conditions change with the weather and when there is more surf, we keep our guests... More
