Pricing & Availability


Enjoy a relaxing night out on the water while being treated to the sights, sounds, and tastes of Hawaii. On a comfortable and spacious two story 65′ boat, you will cruise down 12 miles of Kona coastline while a local historian points out sites and tells you stories about Hawaii’s past. Keep an eye out for pods of spinner dolphins leaping into the air, majestic humpback whales (Dec-Apr), and sea turtles. The boat reaches Kealakekua Bay / Captain Cook’s Monument where a full buffet dinner with local culinary favorites is served. The boat will then make its way back to Kona with a sunset as the backdrop and a local musician strumming his guitar and singing popular hits and local Hawaiian music. A premium cash bar is available throughout the trip, and it includes one complimentary cocktail.

COVID-19 UPDATE: The cruise is operating and takes the health & safety of all guests and staff very seriously. For details, see FAQ below.

Guidebook Reviews

Hawaii Big Island Revealed Guidebook:

Body Glove does it right. Their impressively researched narration keeps things interesting, the food is very good, and their mai tais are better than we expected. One of the best dinner cruises we’ve seen.

Moon Guidebook:

This ‘you’ll do it all tour’ is a good way to check lots of ‘must do’ activities off your list at once
