Dolphin Sighting Guarantee! (until 2019/12/31)

If you do not spot any dolphins during your tour, you will be given the chance to come out again for FREE!

What qualifies as a dolphin sighting is determined by a trained member of the crew. This non-transferable offer allows you to reschedule your tour for free; it does not entitle you to a refund.

Big Island snorkeling tours don't get much better than this! With access to a private Marine Sanctuary at Red Hill, where some of the best snorkeling on Big Island can be found, and a boat decked out with lots of cool features, like a built-in water slide, this is sure to be fun for the entire family. Also, watch for wild dolphins along the Kona Coast, as they regularly race alongside Body Glove's boat and leap from the water. As dolphin watching is such a big part of the Body Glove tour experience, if you don't see any dolphins during your excursion, you can schedule to ride again for free!
