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.

Laid back approach. Buffet style. Crew EXTREMELY helpful, courteous, and safety minded. I witnessed the captains attention to detail on a relatively small issue that could have had a devastating result. That impressed both my wife and I.

Great for the whole family.

The dinner cruise is for 3 hours (4-7pm). They serve coctails (each person gets one free), soft drinks, coffee, etc. and appetisers to start, as we cruise slowly down the coastline; great views. Then, they stop and serve a great buffet dinner. They have a very lovely and friendly lady islander who tells the history of the area. There is also a singer who does island songs softly as all the activities take place. He has a great voice. And, all the staff are great!

We have been on many whale watching cruises, but this one was different. Not only did we see lots of whales and spinner dolphins but they had a naturalists who was amazingly knowledgeable. His name was Denver and when we come back we will request a cruise that he is working. Body Glove is definitely doing it right.

A big MAHALO to your crew for our cruise tonight. Every aspect of the 3 hours was done well. The historical talk was helpful to know the area. The music on return was joyful and the hula dancing was icing on the cake!!! I would recommend this event highly. 5 stars

We went on a whale watching/snorkeling trip. It was great! The crew was very friendly, helpful, and efficient. The water was a little choppy that day and they made sure that everyone was doing okay from start to finish. The Capt. went wherever a whale was spotted and took a long time making sure everyone got to see the whales. Dolphins followed the boat also. They provided a breakfast and lunch. It was a wonderful day!
