H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
Most companies, if not all, require you to call them if you're trying to book something 2-3 days in advance. Do you really want to be spending your valuable time in Hawaii calling around to desperately find something that is available to do? While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Awesome dinner cruise
Overall:
These people know how to spoil customers and EVERY business on the island should take a lesson from them...We did the Captain Cook Sunset Diner Cruise Christmas Eve. They were on time, the service was phenomenal and the food was even restaurant quality and abundant. The live music was enjoyable and the historian was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. Don't have sea legs - they will happily get ... moreyou food, beverages - they are amazing. Most of the seating is under cover, so I assume it would be a good rainy day attraction. A hat with a strap is a good idea, and you might consider a light sweater in the evening during winter. It is by far the best money we spent on this vacation. I HIGHLY recommend it.

Fantastic Dinner Cruise
Overall:
The Body Glove dinner cruise is fantastic. The food, crew, music and narrator were all wonderful. During our three our tour not only did we have a very nice dinner and beautiful music, we saw whales and dolphins all topped off by the beautiful site of Captain Cook monument and a gorgeous sunset. This is one thing we will do again next year.You won't be disappointed if you do this tour. Everyone on ... moreboard had a great evening.

Great anniversary dinner cruise
Overall:
Booked this cruise while visiting Kona. It was our 30th wedding anniversary. The service was outstanding and the scenery was really great. We had a historian on the boat telling us about Hawaiian sacred sites and some history of the island. There was a great Hawaiian musician playing Hawaiian songs. We stopped near the Captain Cook memorial for dinner and there was a large manta ray swimming around ... morethe boat. Great food and plenty of it is the best way to describe the dinner. On the way back to Kona we had a few dolphins racing the boat back to the port. A truly memorable afternoon and evening. Highly recommend this dinner tour.

These guys deserve 6 stars
Overall:
Did the dinner cruise and brought my elderly mother along. We all had such a great time ! The music was live (not at all cheesy as one reviewer described) mellow voice that fit with dinner.I was pleasantly surprised with the meal that was provided (Kalua pork, lomi lomi, huli chicken, salad, cheese cake...). Full bar on board and bartenders kept everyone's cup full. The history narrator was funny ... more, knowledgeable and mingled with the patrons after her part was done(she like all the staff really enjoyed spending some time with all of us). THANK YOU ALL !

Staff, Boat and cruises are worth the money
Overall:
We did the Historical Dinner Cruise and Whale Watching cruise on different days. Bring a hat with a strap so it won't blow off and sunscreen. Some beverages and snacks are free and the alcoholic beverages are available for purchase. We didn't see any whales but did see Dolphins and Manta Rays and still had a good time just riding on the boat. The Historical Dinner Cruise was great! Informative, beautiful ... moreand the food was good. We took a snorkeling cruise with a different operator and I wish we had booked on this boat. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. One of our party has difficulty walking very far. There are booths downstairs and more seating upstairs. The staff helped her step off the ramp onto the boat and she was able to sit comfortably for the whole cruise. There are also restrooms onboard. Give yourself extra time to park. We were dropped off at the pier and the car driver drove back to the Body Glove office and parked in their lot for free. There is also parking available near the pier for a fee.

Beautiful Evening Cruise with Dinner and Entertainment.
Overall:
We had a beautiful evening on the boat with dinner and entertainment. We also saw a Manta Ray as we cruised to our dinner site, and the crew caught a Mahi Mahi on the way back. It was a great evening.
