The crew was fantastic. Crew was very friendly, attentive and helpful, especially first-mate Regan and bartender Nikolai. Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Food was good too, even had a hard time differentiating the vegan burgers from the beef.

Fun and entertaining experience!
Oct 2021
Really fun snorkel cruise! The breakfast and lunch were both filling and tasty. The crew were all fun and friendly. There were good premium drinks for purchase for reasonable prices for the entirely of the cruise. The boat had a lot to do…snorkeling, slides, high dive, floats, etc. My only issue was the snorkel location, while beautiful, wasn’t a great snorkeling spot, since the reef was pretty deep. That said, we really enjoyed the trip!

Aloha Erik D, Thank you for the five star review, for joining us and your feedback! We are thrilled to learn that you were happy with the experience. Regarding the depth of water where we snorkel. We do moor our vessel in water that's deep enough to safely moor our 65' double decker catamaran. We only moor on safely installed moorings and never drop anchor. Guests are free to venture away from the mooring and enjoy shallower depths of about 15' deep. Additionally when snorkeling in our crystal clear ocean, some depth between you and precious coral is recommended. Coral does not tolerate human touch and we make every effort to be good stewards of our amazing marine inhabitants. We even provide our guests with complementary reef safe sunscreen. We hope to see you again someday soon! We wish you all the best!

Actually More Like 3.5 Stars: Little Snorkeling Time
Sep 2021
For the price and promises of this cruise, we expected more. . The boat was clean and not overrun with attendees. We were comfortable in the surroundings. The staff was attentive, fun, and friendly. They mandated the masks when needed. Our first time snorkeling. Lessons great and we never felt uncomfortable while snorkeling. Safety was issue first with the staff as it should be. We did enjoy the experience. Would we book with you again? No. Here's the rub: Snorkeling time was no where near the two hours at Red Hill as promised. In fact, our afternoon snorkel was barely 20 mins. Time was used up with a mediocre lunch (sorry, not certain of the "beef" in your burgers), and hunting for dolphins to fulfill the find dolphin promise. And, based on your advertising hype of the reef, we expected to see much more abundant sea creature observations. As said, we certainly enjoyed the experience. Was it worth the money? Not at all. Way too much time spent going to and coming back from the reef. Not nearly enough time at the reef to snorkel.

Aloha DDM137, Mahalo for your kind words about our vessel and staff! We are confused about your mention that there was only twenty minutes of snorkel time. For our valued readers here's the itinerary: We board at 7:30 am and depart at 8:00. There's a generalized safety briefing upon departure. Breakfast is served (house made banana bread, pecan apple pastry, fresh tropical fruit, granola and yogurt) Cruise to the snorkel site (about 45 minutes) Arrive at snorkel site approximately 9:15 (depending on dolphin sightings on the way down) Safety briefing for snorkeling, distribution of gear, (Snorkeling 101 if you need it) About two hours of snorkeling. During this time we are grilling up burgers, cheese burgers and vegi burgers. Guests can eat any time they want. Or even on the journey back to the pier. We head back to the pier at 11:15. On rare occasions if the guests are no longer in the water and it's close to the time that we would leave the snorkel sight our Captain will leave 15 minutes early to give guests additional time for watching for dolphin. We wish you the very best! Our family owned business has been joyfully sharing our love the ocean since 1988. We are grateful for over 3000 excellent reviews and strive to always provide guests with an excellent experience!

Dolphins, Snorkeling, Water Toys, and Food!
Sep 2021
My husband and I had the best time on this cruise! Check in with Connor was a breeze. There was plenty of room on the boat and we got a nice table in the shade with a great view of the beautiful coastline. Upon leaving the dock, we almost immediately saw spinner dolphins as promised! Captain Bob was super knowledgeable about different animals and locations and provided us with fun facts throughout the trip. Even the safety briefing was informative yet funny, and the crew was very professional about making sure everyone paid attention. We also never had to ask for food or a drink-- breakfast was delivered to us right after sitting down and three different crew members came by in the span of 5-10 minutes to ask if we needed a drink or refill, which was awesome! While you're out in the water, they will also swim drinks out to you-- we saw it ourselves! We had both a continental breakfast and a burger lunch (with vegetarian and vegan options), with cookies at the end, which was great after we worked up an appetite snorkeling with pretty fish, using the slide and high jump, and sitting on inner tubes and the floating mat. There were life jackets and pool noodles if you wanted to make snorkeling a little easier. The whole crew made this a fun and professional trip-- thank you to Connor, Calvin (for the delicious burgers), Darlina (for drinks and snorkel lessons), Nick (drinks and tying up the boat!) Madison and Josiah manning the decks, Sasha and John the bartenders (for delicious pina coladas), and of course Captain Bob! We would definitely do this again.

Bodyglove is awesome
Sep 2021 • Friends
I had such a fun time on the body glove boat! This was such a memorable experience! We saw dolphins and manta rays, the snorkeling was great I got to ride a standup paddleboard! Also had some really good lunch while aboard the boat! I’ll advise anyone who is on vacation in Kona to try and go out on body glove for this wonderful experience! All of the staff was extremely friendly and very accommodating especially a young Scottish fellow named Cosmo! Thank you Cosmo For making my dreams come true aboard this boat! The rest of the crew is also very cool I can’t remember their names though! I am extremely pleased with bodyglove I will definitely be doing this again and I am not even a tourist
