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.

We boarded this vessel on the evening of Monday the 20th of February. Weather wasn't perfect but the night's trip was as close to that as one could get. The staff were incredible. No lie. From our beautiful narrator/hula demonstrator to the wonderful onboard entertainer, Bula. The Captain from my native Canada. Evan, our masterful bartender. All the girls who... More

We took the whale watching excursion. The crew was so helpful. We had several people on board that didn't speak English. They went out of their way to help them. A few people got sick and the crew was right there to help them. There were drinks and snacks. The captain kept driving around to wherever a whale was spotted.... More

This cruise was awesome. The staff was amazing, the historian was so knowledgeable, and the live music was wonderful! The food was great and the drinks were pretty stiff. We encountered dolphins and a whale on our trip. Loved it from start to finish!

The experience was amazing! The staff was very friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. The staff were always ready to help at a moments notice, and we're very friendly! They also really knew what they were talking about a knew exactly what to do. If you want to go whale watching, this is the way to go!

Great catamaran trip. Boat clean and roomy. Choice of being on top deck or lower level. Plenty of room to stay out of sun if needed and still have a great view. A beautiful day and smooth ride. Saw quite a few whale sittings but not up close enough to see breaching. Trip still great. Opportunity to repeat trip free.

A nice boat with nice people. The narrator was lively and informative. We watched two whales breach and frolic together just behind the boat. Very cool! Food was also very tasty. Can't go wrong for the money and it was just the right amount of time on the water. Aloha!

Would have given 4 stars if not for the 1. Canceled the excursion last-minute. A lame reason of high wind, which wasn't the case that day. 2. Poor Audio on board. Couldn't hear a thing what the naturalist said. Awesome crew. While talking in-person the naturalist seemed very knowledgeable.

Mahalo for your feedback. Our captain makes the call of whether to cancel a trip during weather warnings for the safety of our passengers and crew. We never like cancelling, but safety is always our main concern. We heard you on the audio equipment and we have replaced it with a new system. Again, we appreciate your feedback and hope... More
