Enjoy a Deluxe Dolphin Watching and Snorkeling Cruise Out of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii Island

Body Glove Catamaran dolphin and snorkel adventure


Snorkeling off any of the Hawaiian islands is a treat and memorable beyond words, while dolphin watching is one of those lifetime experiences that leave you mesmerized by the beauty and agility of these wonderful marine mammals.

Set out on board your 60’ catamaran from Kailua-Kona

You will set out from Kailua-Kona, located on the western shoreline of Big Island (The Island of Hawaii), also known as the Kona Coast, after which you can sit back and relax during the first part of your four-and-a-half-hour adventure onboard Body Glove’s Deluxe Snorkel & Dolphin Watch. A continental breakfast will be your first of many treats during the trip. With a check-in time of 8.00 a.m. not all of you will have time to grab breakfast first, so there’s no need to stress. After that, it’s time to keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and green turtles, plus other marine life as you make your way to the snorkeling site.

So much more than snorkeling and dolphin watching

Fun and excitement is the order of the day, and during your two hours in the water there will be plenty more to do that just snorkeling. The fully equipped 60’ catamaran comes with plenty of cushioned seating, changing rooms, restrooms, and showers. Beyond that there is a 20’ water slide if you are feeling brave enough! Of course, we mustn’t forget that with so much time spent offshore, and with all the swimming and snorkeling you will do, you’re bound to get hungry. That’s why a delicious burger lunch will also be laid on for you, plus there will also be a premium bar onboard offering craft beers, local spirits and cocktails. What more could you want? Oh yes…

We’re pleased to say that all you really need bring with you is a towel and the clothes and swimwear you are wearing. Beyond this, everything else will be provided. This extends well beyond just snorkeling gear with equipment including life vests, inner tubes, a flotation station island, water toys, see-view boards, noodles and stand-up paddle boards. Reef Safe sunscreen is also provided. Plus, we can’t forget the snorkeling gear that is also provided. This includes Rx masks and full snorkeling instruction. While the water is usually wonderfully warm, wet suit rentals are also available.

There’s every chance you will have a brief encounter with one of many of the Hawaiian green turtles that inhabit the waters surrounding the archipelago. We should also remind you that you can look, but you cant touch as they are a protected species. Where fish are concerned, roughly 20% of them are indigenous and exclusive to Hawaiian waters. There’s every chance you will see angelfish, and Hawaii’s state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa, together with Monk seals and manta rays.
