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.

Had a very fun time on this cruise. Beautiful evening. Enjoyed the food, music, narration, and the view. Fun crew!!! Did this cruise 4 years ago when previously on the Big Island. Wanted to do this again on our return visit to the Big Island.

This excursion was a 50th birthday present for my sister who wanted to see whales for her birthday. Denver was a great tour guide and so were the other staff. We saw lots of whales and 2 breaches of whales which was breathtaking and spinner dolphins entertained us on the drive back to the pier.

Everything was very ok on this trip. We all enjoyed ourselves and the crew was great. I certainly wasn't wowed, but neither was I unhappy. I would be happy to try a different company and see if it's better, and I would be happy to try another Body Glove cruise.

The good parts: * Boat is very comfortable -- lots of good seats and three restrooms * Captain JT was HIGHLY committed to doing everything possible to find marine life * We did in fact see whales, dolphins, sharks, and rays What gives pause: * If you are seated along the perimeter, you can't hear the guide speak when the...
