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!

Best Excursion in Hawaii!
Best snorkel cruise ever, simply because of the service. The boat was awesome, the location we visited was good, the food and drinks were good, but the service far exceeded my expectations and the safety measures are far greater than any excursion we have taken. The staff were attentive and wanted to be sure we were always enjoying ourselves. One crew member came around and noticed my 6 yr old was ... morequeezy, so he brought him a ginger ale to make him feel better...that is only one example of the all around great service!
"Evan-11" served up some tasty adult slurpees! 
Our boys, 6 and 9 loved it! The slide and high jump were fun highlights.
A great experience!
I have been on many snorkeling excursions around the world and the one with Body Glove on Dec. 23 was the best ever. The crew provided excellent safety instructions and the equipment was more than adequate. A great experience!
Went for the snorkel tried the Snuba!
We were cruising around Hawaii and stopped in Kona for the day. Decided to go snorkeling with this tour. It was a great day! I would totally recommend this company and trip. There was a Snuba instructor on board and for a few extra dollars he would take you Snubaing. As a first timer and always wanted to try it was great. Andres I believe his name was was awesome. He took it slow to make sure you ... morewere comfortable and stated with you! It was truly very cool to be about 25 ft below water!
After our dive we came back to boat. Lunch was burgers and fixings and very good too. 
Lots of time in water to snorkel, play, float or Snuba!
It is a great Scuba boat too!
The focus of this boat is family snorkeling but they also do scuba. Our dive master was Darrick Troch and he was excellent. There was only myself and one other diver on the trip so we got undivided attention from Darrick. They provide all the scuba equipment you need so all you need to bring is your Scuba Certification card and you are good to go. One unexpected feature of the equipment provided was ... morecorrective lens masks. They looked at my glasses and said I needed a +4. I tried it and it was near perfect for me.
Absolutely the best snorkel cruise for kids. We took the dolphin / snorkel excursion out of Kona 11/6/15. Our 4 year old loved it so much we decided to forgo another activity and take him again today, 11/13/15. Every crew member was fantastic and personable, but John and Evan were hands down the best crew members we've ever encountered. Evan made sure my elderly mother was comfortable and gladly assisted ... moreher whenever she needed it. John connects with children and goes out of his way to make them feel special and accommodate their needs. John, if you ever read this, Tanner thinks you're a really "cool dude." Thank you from making his snorkel trips something he'll remember. Both John and Evan are huge assets to your company. We appreciate their professionalism and warmth. Thank you for making it an amazing experience for all of us. Money well spent!
Wonderful from start to finish!!
I had a wonderful sunday bbq snorkeling cruise! From the start with Michael's help to the time we disembarked, we were well attended to at every moment. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who is in the Kona area. As a local resident, I can say that we have the best snorkeling areas and they must be enjoyed as part of any holiday here. The boat, in particular, the slide--coupled with the ... moreamazing service and beautiful waters led to a terrific day~
🌴Definitely a highlight!!
My boyfriend and I did the bbq/ snorkelling tour. We honestly couldn't fault anything about the trip! Great for all ages, Body Glove cater to anyone. The food/ activities and local knowledge were outstanding. Everyone was so accommodating! They even offered to swim beers out to us while we floated on the "chill out station". We jumped off the top of the boat and the boat slide. We didn't want the ... moretrip to end! Definitely well priced and an experience not to be missed!! Thanks again Body Glove! ❤️
Family snorkel trip”
I was so impressed with our experience on the Body glove vessel and their crew! My husband and I took our three kids 18, 8, and 6 year old on a snorkel cruise. The first thing I noticed was the condition of the vessel. It is immaculate! I am a detailed person and pay attention to these things. The crew are all very engaging and want to make sure your needs are met. After eating the great spread of ... morebreakfast with many choices:) the crew came around and talked to all of us. One of the crew sat next to my son for probably 20 min talking to him about the different things he can expect to see. 
The cruise to or destination was beautiful of course:). The snorkeling was great. Kids have a short attention span, so there were many other fun activities included in the trip that had everyone having fun! The slide off the vessel into the water, the island rafts the kids could stand on and then fall into the water, and many more:)
This may sound silly, but even the bathrooms were immaculate! 
After a great experience, the trip home I noticed that the crew was equally as engaging and helpful on the way back. To me I was already extremely impressed. I have been on enough excursions to notice that many experiences the customer service drops off on the return home leaving you feeling like they got their money they did their job and that's all folks even though the journey isn't quite over. The Body glove crew were consistently hospitable until the moment you step off of their vessel.
One of the most impressive things about this Company is how they went above and beyond a week AFTER our excursion. We purchased a dolphin stuffed animal for my 6 year old on the vessel as her souvenir to remember our amazing trip to Kona and our snorkeling excursion with Body glove. She loved her dolphin and named it Lemonaya. She carried it everywhere. On our flight home she dropped it in the airport. We searched with no luck. We contacted the airport, no luck. She was so upset! We called Bodyglove a week later to see if they had more of the same dolphin we could purchase and pay for them to ship to us. It was worth asking, but I thought there was a good chance they wouldn't want to go through the hassle of figuring out the shipping part. 
The girl that we talked to on the phone was SO empathetic to how my daughter was feeling. Free of charge, she sent a new dolphin to my daughter in the mail!!!!! With a handmade name tag that read "Lemonaya" AMAZING!!!!!!!!! 
Thank you Body glove! You guys rock!!!!
Splendid Hawaiian Ocean!
It is a cruise with very good very friendly staff and you get highly detailed information, its amazing to go down the ocean and snorkel and dive the floor of this sea is very beautiful, interesting to see the lava flows now turned to stone, and fish how their colors contrast with soil and corals. The very delicious burgers and very nice boat crew. Something unique is seeing dolphins swimming so close ... moreonly !! It's so cute and not to be missed. !!
