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.

Body Glove dinner cruise was an awesome experience. The crew was fantastic and very helpful. The historian on board was awesome and the musician was very good. Food was excellent. One of my best experiences on the big island.

Very knowledgeable and courteous staff. They all seem happy to work, which tells a lot about the kind of establishment they run. There were enough things to do to keep us occupied - high dive platform, slide, stand up paddle (although they should probably add...More

Everything went smoothly, bus pick up was great and from our hotel. Staff were fantastic. We took our 2 year old and 5 year old and staff were very accommodating for them. We say lots of dolphins, turtles and fish.

Great way to spend a few hours late afternoon and through sunset. Wonderfully educational “historic tour” with knowledgeable docent, nice crew, and good food.
