What Sets Body Glove Apart from Other Tour Companies?




Body Glove Cruises Designated a Kuleana Green Business!

Body Glove Cruises is proud to be recognized as a Kuleana Green Business by the Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce. The Kuleana Green Business Program recognizes and honors businesses who promote environmental responsibility and implement sustainable business practices throughout Hawaii.

In Hawaiian, the word “kuleana” means responsibility. Businesses designated Kuleana Green are those who recognize and understand their responsibility to create and sustain positive environmental impacts within their communities. As businesses and individuals, they maintain high standards and a strong commitment to their communities and the world around them.

Extensive criteria must be met before being recognized as a Kuleana Green business, including environmental, social and economic sustainability. The business must prove responsible interaction with the environment that avoids depletion or degradation of natural resources, and their business model must allow for long-term environmental quality.

One way Body Glove Cruises implements their sustainability practices is by the elimination of plastic straws. Although small, plastic straws are seldom recycled. And while they make up a small percentage of ocean plastic, their small size makes them significant foes of marine animals. They are often consumed by fish and can become lodged in the nostrils of sea turtles. Body Glove Cruises uses only paper straws and educate their guests about not using plastic straws to help save the oceans.

According to the National Park Service, Americans alone use 500 million straws a day! Body Glove Cruises understands plastic straws are completely unnecessary and we don’t need straws to consume beverages.

Body Glove Cruises is also proud to be the only boat in the United States certified by the Green Restaurant Association. At Body Glove Cruises, we are passionate about sharing the natural beauty of Hawaii with visitors from around the world. Our company understands that their future success is dependent upon a clean, healthy and sustainable environment.

Top-Rated Kona Snorkel Trips, Boat Tours & Whale Watching
in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii!

Explorer Snorkel cruise was a wonderful trip

The Explorer snorkel trip is one for serious snorkelers. This is NOT a booze/party boat atmosphere, if you want that, get on the big catamaran. What you get instead is a small pontoon boat with 2 big outboards that flies over the water to sites the big boats can't access. You get to do 3 dives instead of 1, and there's no crowd in the water. We were the only boat in one of our stops. The crew were super friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable and customize the trip to the conditions and the divers desires. We also got a nice sandwich for lunch and saw dozens of pilot whales. We loved it.

So Much Fun

Great cruise! The staff was wonderful, super helpful, and fabulous customer service. Everything that was advertised about the cruise was true and they also provided other water equipment for those who are not adept at snorkeling.

Best Snorkel Tour in Kona

The ride was really smooth!I loved the wind in my hair; it was like a little mini blow-dry between snorkel stops, haha! It felt great on this warm day. It was really fun to have multiple places to explore in the water. Sitting on the side of the boat to enjoy the sunshine after each snorkel stop was so lovely. Lunch was great, and the staff could not have been any more kind and friendly. They had a great selection of craft soft drinks, water and coconut water that they offered us all day. I highly recommend the Body Glove snorkel trip for an unforgettable adventure and enjoyable boat ride along the beautiful Kona coast. It felt like we were out there all day, but still got back in time to have another activity planned or do some relaxing in the afternoon.

Whale Watching

One of the best activities on the island for groups and families! We saw manta rays, dolphins, and flying fish. Great presentation from the staff naturalist. Sunset cruise with Hawaiian cultural speaker and local Hawaiian singer made it top notch for us.
