Great experience with cruise including an historian on board with great knowledge of the sights and history of the island. Live music was also provided and enjoyable. The Dinner was varied, well prepared, and enjoyable. The crew members were totally engaged with the guests on board and bent over backwards to help in any way. Overall a great experience to try!!!!!

We really liked this cruise. Awesome crew and fantastic food. The bartender can make any type of drink and is really good with tropical drinks. There was a large wedding party on board so was sometimes hard to hear the historian, but we saw a couple of whales breaching and several playful dolphins.
The musician on board was really good and encouraged all to dance.

Loved this! We saw dolphins, whales and even a manta ray! Food was great, we had a beautiful smooth cruise. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Body Glove is awesome, we did a whale watch last year and it was the best.

Thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Sea was a little choppy but it didnt spoil the experience. We were very lucky and saw several pods of spinner dolphins who put on an amazing display. The food was well cooked, tasty and plentiful.

My husband and I went on this tour the last evening of our vacation. It was a wonderful way to end a wonderful week in Hawaii. The boat had a wonderful commentator on it giving you details of everything along the coastline. She was wonderful. They also had live music on the boat which was fantastic. They had some appetizers and a wonderful dinner well we sat in calm water. There is also staff on the boat to serve drinks and help you with your buffet dinner, carrying it upstairs, etc. We went on the dinner cruise and the sunset was absolutely beautiful . We would highly recommend this tour. Karen and Richie

We had a wonderful evening and dinner. The narrator gave detailed information on the various points of interest along the shoreline and on land. The crew made every effort to ensure that guests had fun, were well-fed and had beverages. The food was delicious, and I especially like the lomi-lomi salmon and beef brisket. I had that at other restaurants which were not anywhere as tasty as that served aboard the boat. I would recommend this dinner cruise to anyone looking for beautiful scenery and great food.

Outstanding in every way. We were on the dinner cruise, which was perfectly timed total of 3 hours before and after sunset, with dinner served in the bay. On the way to the bay, the ship historian/cultural expert provided an animated and informative narration of Hawaiian history, pointing out landmarks along the shore. The musician/singer, who performed during breaks in tge historians presentation, during dinner, and all the way back to Kailua was excellent Lovely voice and rich portfolio of songs tgat fit well with the setting. The entire crew captain, bar tender, service personnel were friendly and attentive. Even the spinner dolphins appeared to be a part of the crew, arriving in the bay right on cue. Then, of course, was the sea breeze, a lovely sunset, lights turning on along the shore line, and a full moon rising on the way back to Kailua.

What a wonderful way to spend our 30th wedding anniversary. Cruising down the Kona coast in the afternoon and evening was everything we hoped. The crew was very attentive to our every need and desire. The pier was easy to find and a leisurely walk from the Body Glove office. The boat was very comfortable and the buffet dinner fabulous and plentiful. I had my first taste of passionfruit lillikoi and am hooked.

Our narrator, Micaela, told us so much about what we were seeing. She was most entertaining, sharing personal stories and observations that brought history to life. We had perfect weather and the most awesome luck because we saw many, many dolphins as we cruised down the coast and back. Captain Rick told us that although they see dolphins, they rarely see as many as we did. Some were even playing in the boat's wake which was a treat to see.

We were treated to lovely Hawaiian music by our on board entertainer. He has a smooth voice and is very skilled on the guitar. He sang some oldies but goodies, as well as one or two of his original compositions.

This is a wonderful way to spend an evening in Kona and a bargain at the price.
