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.

So much fun!

This was a 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.

Whale Watch and Sunset Cruise

For a large group and families one of the best boating activities on the island. Whales with whale watch and sunset cruise. Saw manta rays, dolphins and flying fish with help from the careful cruise guests and good presentation from staff naturalist. Sunset cruise with Hawaiian cultural speaker with local Hawaiian singer made it top notch for us.
