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.

Great day on the Body Glove lunch and snorkel Cruise. We saw a lot of spinner dolphins and crew was great! The boat is large and nice with plenty of room. The slide is a lot of fun. Hamburgers for lunch and everything was fresh.

We went on one of the morning boat trips, even thou we did not get to see dolphins we had great time. My boys ( 6 and 8 ) loved the big slide on the boat and diving board! The crew was amazing and even had a nice breakfast buffet and lunch.

We took a morning trip with Bodyglove to snorkel and (hopefully) to see Dolphins. They provided a lovely breakfast, free sunscreen (reef friendly), lots of information from friendly helpful staff, plenty of equipment. The boat was very comfortable indeed with lots of places to sit and after the snorkelling there was a great lunch and a nice ride back. Our... More

I had originally booked a tour to go whale watching. They called me back to tell me it was the end of the season and could not guarantee that we would see a whale-they offered me a complimentary swim with the manta rays or a dinner cruise. I chose the dinner cruise for which they charged me nothing. My husband... More

We wanted to do the whale watch but after checking prices and benefits we decided to try the morning snorkel. I am so glad we did. Myself, my mother in law and two of my kids ages 7 and 9 took this tour. We were welcomed onto the boat by a great staff and some yummy food. They had fruits,... More
