A Review Of Body Glove Cruises In Kailua – Kona Hawaii

When I travel to new and exciting tropical destinations, the first thing I do is look for ways to go 🤿 Scuba Diving and/or Snorkeling.

On our very first visit to the 🏝 Big Island of Hawaii a few seasons ago, it wasn’t hard for us to choose 🧤 Body Glove Cruises and their …

🛟 Deluxe Catamaran Snorkel Adventure. 🛟

This is a professionally operated business with a reputation second to none. 🧤 Body Glove was the perfect choice for us and boy, did they deliver!

Catamaran Ocean Adventure On The Big Island Of Hawaii

Kailua Kona Coast Hawaii

If you’re looking for an all-inclusive deluxe 4 1/2 hour snorkel cruise, this is perfect for you and your family. ⛵ Sail aboard their beautiful 65 foot fully equipped deluxe catamaran in complete comfort.

With two levels and plenty of room to sit comfortably inside and outside in the sun or shade, this vessel is perfect for cruising the spectacular 🌊 Kona coastline.

An ideal way to spend a portion of your day on the water in Hawaii, especially if you’re arriving by 🛳 Cruise Ship for the day, and want to enjoy some quality water sports activities!

NCL Cruise Ship Hawaii

This first class vessel comes complete with three 🚻 restrooms, fresh water 🚿 showers, a fun twenty foot slide and a fifteen foot dive platform, to show off your best water splash!

For 🤿 snorkeling and scuba diving, there are two very large and easy step 🪜 ladders and platforms to enter and exit the vessel easily. As an extra bonus, this beautiful catamaran comes equipped with floatation toys and a paddle board for everyone to enjoy.

Our family have taken numerous snorkel and dive excursions over the years, from the 🏝 Caribbean Islands to 🏜 Mexico, but we have never experienced a vessel so deluxe as this!

All their vessels are fully equipped to help make your excursion as safe and as enjoyable as possible.

Cruise Snorkel and Dive Locations

Kona Coast Hawaii

From what I understand in speaking with the captain, snorkel locations may differ each cruise, depending on weather conditions for that day. All locations apparently are excellent and in the same general location along the Kona Coast. They are spots that are accessible by boat only.

These are protected {Marine Sanctuaries}, making for some superb snorkeling!

Body Glove Snorkel Cruise Hawaii

Your safety is always a major priority and I very impressed to see one of the crew members (lifeguard), out on his paddle board at all times, keeping an eye on all of us in the water. He was always watching, to sure no one ventured too close to the rocks and always available to assist anyone, at any time.

We were in a picturesque Bay south of Kona, with crystal clear seas, making for excellent snorkeling and all around fun in the water.

What a great time to enjoy some water activities, with a full 2 ½ hours set aside to enjoy snorkeling, swimming, the water slide, paddle boarding and much more!

What’s Included On Your Snorkel Cruise

Body Glove Deluxe Snorkel Cruise Catamaran Slide

This cruise is designed for everyone of all ages and all levels of snorkeling experience. Crew members will give newbies to snorkeling an introductory lesson, before entering the water. 

There’s life jackets, water noodles and more available to use. All helping to make your time in the water, as pleasant as can be! 😎 They even supply 🥽 Rx masks for those that wear prescription glasses, to help improve your vision while snorkeling.

All your snorkel equipment is provided on this cruise, including loads of 🧴 Special Reef Safe Sunscreen!

As mentioned above, and what really impressed me on this cruise and unlike others we had experienced in the past, was how well equipped and comfortable this catamaran was.

The crew were simply outstanding, always making themselves available to help out and assist in any way they could throughout the entire cruise.

There’s 🐬 dolphin watching along the way, a nice continental breakfast buffet with coffee or tea, and an excellent BBQ lunch with 🍔 beef burgers (or vegan taro burgers), snacks, sodas, juices and more!

The only thing you need to bring on this cruise is; yourself, a towel, your 📷 camera and a big smile!:)
