Cruise from beautiful Kailua Bay en-route to historic Kealakekua Bay where you will learn the story of Captain Cook’s final landfall with music, food, drink and dramatic scenery. Book ahead as this opportunity tends to sell out in advance.
Who is this for?
The historic dinner cruise is great for all ages. If you like to eat, drink, learn about Hawaii’s history and culture, watch the sunset, and listen to live music, all while cruising the open seas, you will love this Kona dinner cruise.
The Body Glove is Kona’s largest boat and is considered a luxury catamaran, so it can handle most ocean conditions easily. The space on the boat means your Keiki (children have space to roam) the height of the boat over the water makes for a great view and allows easy spotting of whales, dolphins, and other marine animals commonly seen in Big Island waters.
This is the only Kona dinner cruise available on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Body Glove is fully shaded and offers expansive outward views with plenty of seating and railing to lean against while you take a sunset selfie. Perhaps you can catch a glimpse of a green flash?

What is a Green Flash?
A green Flash is a color change that occurs when the sun dip below the horizon. It’s called a flash because it happens very quickly and is an effect that is most apparent on a clear day. The suns rays bounce off the atmosphere causing the effect. We see them frequently in Kona when the skies are clear year around.
