Set sail from Kailua-Kona and see where spinner dolphins play, then enjoy snorkeling at a marine sanctuary. This is a great activity for kids!


Your Kona snorkel adventure takes you to a protected marine sanctuary of Red Hill, accessible only by boat, and home to more than 600 fascinating species of island wildlife! Spinner Dolphins are often spotted en route. The whole family will especially love the 15-foot (5 meter) waterslide and the high-dive platform, both making a big "splash" with the kids and the "kids at heart!"

Guests interested in SCUBA are welcome to request this upgrade at check-out. Guests will pay for the SCUBA upgrade fee on-board the boat.

David Wright

The cruise was excellent. We saw dolphins on the way out and on the way back. When we anchored we had about 2.5 hours to snorkel, ...jump off the boat and play with the various water equipment. The kids particularly enjoyed using the paddle board. The breakfast and lunch was great and the staff were very friendly. I would definitely recommend this trip. more


My husband and I had a lot of fun ! The team was really friendly and we had the perfect weather ! We will take the cruise again wh...en we come back to the Big Island ! more

Laure & Sam Morrison

Absolutely perfect day! Saw dolphins, snorkeled, good food, great staff.


What a fun day. The crew was courteous and intent on everyone having fun. There were families on our trip with very young children... and some grandparents on board too. Everyone was in the water whether snokling, scub or snuba diving or just relaxing in tubes. I also didn't hear any complaints about the food. Service was very efficient. Everyone was satisfied!! more


What a great day! Pros: The crew was friendly and helpful, the lunch was tasty and we saw a ton of fish. Our 5 year old had an ama...zing first snorkeling tour. The slide was a hit! Cons : we didn't see any Dolphins or turtles but body glove can't control that. more


What a wonderful guided tour. Staff so helpful and fun to hang with. Perfect spot to just snorkel and watch fish and coral reef b...elow. Enough time for snorkeling allowed. Would recommend to anyone. more

Ron Harrigan

It was the most wonderful experience with my family. We went the morning program and the weather was great (not too sunny but not ...too cloudy). The staff crews and captain are wonderful to serve every single passenger. Ola, one of staff remembers our names and keep checking us often. Dolphins were waiting for our Body Grove boat and played with our boat both ways from/to the spot. The snorkeling was beautiful ever and the meals were also wonderful. My wife had a motion sickness and hard time to survive but all other four family members had life-long unforgettable memory. If you have motion sickness, better to prepare some medicine to prevent it. My kids enjoyed the high jumps. There are some waves. Thanks to Captain and all crews. more

Chang Kim

Trip was great captain Jon was funny/informative. Chelsea and Rachael were both awesome would definitely book again and look forwa...rd to seeing them all soon more

Mike Jackson

It was a great snorkeling experience. They did a great job all around. Seeing Dolphins is a guarantee. They hang out just off the ...coast on the way to and from the snorkeling location. The food they served was great and included (breakfast/lunch). They provide some drinks for free with the food. Any smoothies or alcoholic drinks you must pay for and there is a bar on the boat for that. They provide rash gaurds, towels, fins, snorkels, various floatation devices (noodles, boards, etc...). I did start feeling a little sea sick and missed out the last 15 min of water time before we headed back. So I would recommend taking some Dramamine if you get motion sickness. more


An adventure with. great sights and friendly /helpful staff. Reccomnend for anyone who loves water and great sight seeing.

Bob Sanders

The reef wasn't as colorful or with the variety of fish that I expected, but the tour was awesome and did a great job making ...the guests comfortable. more

Title a bit misleading as we saw no Dolphins (they did point out some movement in the water on the trip out that might have been D...olphins but who knows). more
