Fun adventure
Amanda_S, Aug 2022
Wonderful tour/snorkeling adventure and well worth the money. The captain and crew members were wonderful. Spotted some whales and dolphins on our way out and back.
Great experience
Julie_C, Aug 2022
Great experience ! Celine (I believe that’s her name, beautiful guide from Honduras) made me feel so welcome as I did this trip solo! Thank you so much !
A Certified Hawaiian Experience!
Dawn_R, Aug 2022
Our experience was immensely memorable. This is the very first time in Hawaii and the first time ever snorkeling. The captan, the crew were detailed and thoughtful throughout our excursion and no detail was left unsaid or undone. They provided an unbelievable amount of "toys" to float around on or chill out with a refreshing drink. When the team asked for us to pick up our snorkel equipment, it was only then that I found out they have prescription cool is that! I wear contacts and was thinking I would not see the best under water, as I had to remove them to snorkel - it was amazing to be able to see because of the prescription masks. And to end the day, as we were going back to the dock, we were able to see Bottle Nosed Dolphins and Flying Fish! I would most definitely recommend Body Glove to anyone looking for a stellar experience.
Top Notch
Bruce_G, Jul 2022
This trip and the Body Glove staff were top notch. We had so much. It was amazing they provided breakfast and lunch. I recommend this trip.
Cool catamaran and great service!
Rose_R, Jul 2022
Great snorkeling, water slide, high dive, saw dolphins, great service on the boat, good food, and wonderful, relaxing time!
Truly a fabulous experience for all ages
Katherine_W, Jul 2022
Right from the get go, checking in and boarding the boat was super easy and done by friendly faces all around. Even if it was 730 am in the morning, all the crew were pumped with energy and served all who came on board. Breakfast was light with yogurt, granola, danish, muffin, and fruit. Perfect amount before leaving the dock. The crew was consistently checking on guests to make sure they were happy and had beverages in hand. When we made it to the snorkel area, the mandatory security briefing by the crew members was absolutely hilarious! Everyone had a blast with the jokes made and the crew didn't hesitate to emphasize our safety. They were sincere in all their actions and had no problem AT ALL if you had a question or concern about anything, whether it be wanting more food, beverages, or simply just to talk! There was plenty of time for snorkeling, water slide, and diving platform, along with a quick break to eat lunch and float around in the water. Lunch was good with burgers and taro chips. You only want to eat a quick bite bc the water is so clear, you just want to stay in there all day. We saw so many fish and the reef was beautiful, when I first looked down with my snorkeling gear, it was a one in a lifetime experience. **Highly recommend using a floatation device (noodle or life jacket)and the goggles degogger so you can just float and stare at the ocean floor. Since you're not moving as much, the fish will come closer and it will add that much more to the experience. After swimming in nature's pool, we went dolphin watching and we were BLOWN AWAY!! We saw 6-7 dolphins and a baby one!! This was the absolute highlight of the tour, not that any other part was bad. They give you plenty of time to watch the dolphin no matter where you are on the boat. They circle back around to make sure everyone has a view. The dolphins had followed the boat long enough for everyone to get super tan, just sitting out in the sun watching them. Another nice gesture was cookies started being given out! What a wonderful treat at the end. This excursion is fit for all ages, no matter house young or old, they make it work for you. Crew was phenomenal in customer service and I really cannot think of anything bad about them!! It's only the other guests that may contribute to that category, but overall, highly highly HIGHLY recommend passing a little bit more for this experience.

Memorable excursion
Nancy_T, Jul 2022
We appreciated all it the extra activities you can enjoy, paddle boarding, floaty, layout on huge water pad, snorkel and most of all the crew members delivered drinks to us while on the floaty in the ocean! That was a wonderful treat!!
Friendly, professional...
Chris_S, Jul 2022
Friendly, professional staff. Boat was lovely. Lunch was DELICIOUS. I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone visiting the Big Island!
This is where you need to take the family.
David_A, Jul 2022
Just a great job by all on staff. The staff was funny, helpful, responsive, and just good to be around. The boat was sweet! Good burgers, and the bartender made a good cocktail. Something for everyone - snorkeling...check. Hang in water with a drink...check. Go down a waterslide...check. Jump off a 15-foot-high dive into the ocean...check. See dolphins...check. Honestly, one of the best times we had on the island

Best Snorkel Trip Yet
Jack_H, Jul 2022
So much fun! We loved every minute of our tour with Body Glove. Their entire staff is top notch and extremely kind/attentive. We had extra rough waters the day of our tour which caused many to suffer from motion sickness. I would recommend to make sure to take Dramamine the night before if you are unsure of how you will react to the waters. It’s not possible to predict how calm it will be and taking precautions will save you and the other guests from illness. However, staff responded quickly and discreetly to all issues. Honestly, they handled it so well and made sure no one suffered. But the time we dropped anchor, everyone was able to enjoy the clear water. The snorkeling gear was great condition and they had plenty of toys for the water. Do this! Tip the staff!

Great fun!
Pat_W, Jul 2022
It was a great experience swimming in the Pacific for the first time. We saw some dolphins and had fun. They provided all the equipment we needed and everything was kept very clean. The Captain and crew were knowledgeable and friendly, very helpful throughout the entire cruise. I would definitely recommend this for anyone.
A must do in Kona
Rachel_U, Jul 2022
We could not have had a better experience! The crew was professional, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was delicious and the boat was clean and comfortable.
Book this trip!
Liz_H, Jun 2022
Every crew member was genuinely kind, helpful, and accommodating. It was a great experience to snorkel with my kids but the crew really made this trip memorable. There were plenty of options for people to enjoy the water at any experience level. Different rafts, boards, pool noodles. My daughter started panicking and they quickly helped her out and gave her other options to try. The food was great, wonderful drinks. They were fully stocked with everything you would need. When they say to just bring a towel and a smile the really mean it. I highly recommend this trip it was a blast.
Great Experience Crew
Melissa_J, Jun 2022
The crew was so kind and helpful! They were always walking around asking us if we needed anything. I was feeling a little sea sick at first and they were very kind trying to help me feel better. The food was just as described in the description. The alcoholic drinks were very reasonably priced and delicious!! The bartender made recommendations on drinks I would like too. My son dropped his waterproof phone pouch while snorkeling and it doesn’t float, but one of the crew members was able to dive down and retrieve it for us. This crew and boat was by far one of our favorites we have ever been on!
Beautiful way to spend a morning
Robert_K, Jun 2022

Amazing Family Day- worth every dime!
Sunny_C, Jun 2022
We did several excursions while in Kona, and Body Glove was by far our favorite. We weren't sure if it was going to be worth the expense, but it was worth every dime for the memories we created with our family. The staff on the boat was top notch; Kelly, Cosmos, Paul, Bob- thank you so much! Paul even delivered a beer to us while we floated in the ocean. We saw beautiful fish while snorkeling, ate a delicious burger, saw dolphins, and had a blast! We also visited the Body Glove store to commemorate our day!
Awesome time!
Larissa_N, Jun 2022
I loved swimming with the dolphins. At some point I lost my watch in the middle of the ocean. Cosmo somehow found it and gave it back to me! Staff was super friendly and it was so much fun!
