Owner description: 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.

very enjoyable historical cruise, interesting narration from Boyd, obliging Captain Bob and entertainer, pretty much the whole crew were amazing. Got to see spinner dolphins, a manta ray very close to where they congregate at the Sheraton Rays on the Bay, on our way to the Captain Cook monument, which is only accessible by sea. Food was very good value, part of the deal, something for everyone and local fare. Also included a free drink, with purchase options for more if wanted. It was a lovely evening, beautiful scenery and breeze on the night we cruised. Would definately do another Body Glove Cruise, they have other options to choose from. Also got a good deal, lots of coupon booklets on the island, but best value thru AAA (similar to West Australian RAC). Recommended

This was an extremely pleasant experience and one of the highlights of our Hawaiian vacation. The setting was spectacular, the food was good, there was nice live music, but what really set this cruise above the ordinary was the excellence of the crew. Captain Bob guided the boat expertly, the historical narration by Boyd made the scenery we were passing so much more interesting, and the attentiveness of bartender Kendra and crew members Mike and John made us feel like pampered guests and family members simultaneously. Highly recommended and good value for money.

This was one of our cruise ship excursions, and by far one of the best I've ever been on! The crew was so welcoming, I felt like they were friends by the end of the trip. While getting to our snorkel spot, they actually took some time to get to know us. There was yummy bread and fruits along with Kona coffee for breakfast, and cheeseburgers and chips for lunch. Both really hit the spot because I didn't want something too heavy before and after snorkeling.

We saw a huge school/pod of spinner dolphins, and they followed our boat for at least 10 minutes! It was like the dolphins recognized the boat and wanted to hang out with us. Got the best pictures and movies!

I can't stress enough how patient and personable this crew was. I have had trouble snorkeling in the past in other locations, and two of the crew members worked with me for at least 15 minutes to get me going in the water and comfortable. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting the big island!

We had a great day with the crew of Body Glove. They made us feel welcome, comfortable, and did evything possible to make our trip amazing. We had a trip scheduled earlier in the week which had to be canceled due to weather, but when we did return we were happy we did. We had my 10year old son who was a novice snorkeler and my husband's 70 year old dad as well as my husband and myself who snorkel frequently. We all had a great time! A few of the crew actually learned our names by the end of the trip.

We took the dinner cruise on the Body Glove. The history information on the way to the Cap Cook monument by Boyd was outstanding. The shore view and the discussion of the north and south Kona formations was very informative. The crew was the best we have encountered in years. The dinner at the monument was superb! We could not have asked for any better meal. We saw a ray on the way down and the sunset on the way back yielded several great pictures. LT Smooth's music way a nice way to end the evening. This tour is a must at Kona!!
