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.

Went on the morning dolphin and snorkeling cruise. The snorkeling is the highlight as yes you see dolphins but that is a very small part of the cruise. Staff was excellent and found a great spot to swim, snorkel, and enjoy the water. Food provided was outstanding and everyone seemed to enjoy the cruise. They make sure you are comfortable... More

We finished our vacation with the dinner cruise. Our historian was very interesting. The musician was very good. I was pleasantly surprised with the food also. A manta ray was spotted while we were in the bay and according to the captain we were lucky. We had been to the bay early as part of a kayaking tour and had... More

Nice cruise with historical narration heading South from Kialua Pier. After about an hour the cruise anchors at Kealakekua Bay for a buffet and watching the sunset. We especially enjoyed the maitais, kalua pork and goat cheese dip. Then its a boring hour back to the pier with nice live Hawaiian music. . Takes about 4 hours from boarding to... More

We took a snorkel cruise with Captain John and had an awesome trip. He is incredibly knowledgeable of the island's history and the ocean. Has great stories that he shares with his guests who he seems to truly care about. The rest of the crew was equally outstanding. Attention to detail...from enjoying every aspect of the cruise to safety and... More

They were the most friendliest professionals, fun and smart, ready to deal with anything you throw at them. Me and my wife dropped our gear including out personal camera on bottom of the ocean for which J.D. put in about 20 minutes of free diving to recover. I am truly grateful. They were all hands on deck all the time... More

The staff was excellent on this trip, and their main focus was on safety, which was very important to me. Even though the boat was 3/4 full it certainly did not seem that way and the staff was always attentive and concerned. Food supplied was excellent, and in abundance. My only complaint was the lack of sea life we saw... More
