All aboard to Pawai Bay, a snorkeler's paradise! This remote area offers visibility up to 150 feet and enchanting coral gardens that are home to over 600 species of brightly-colored tropical fish. Dolphins often follow us as we cruise to our destination. This 4 1/2 hour cruise includes 2 1/2 hours of water time. Snorkel gear, instruction, Rx masks, flotation toys, fresh water showers, a 20-foot water slide, 15-foot high dive platform, his and her restrooms, continental breakfast, buffet sandwich and salad bar, sodas, juices and a no-host premium bar are included. Two extra wide swim platforms make it a cinch to get in and out of the water. This is fun for the entire family, and might just be the best day you'll spend in Hawaii. Note: To purchase alcoholic beverages, guests must be at least 21 years of age. A valid ID is required by law.

My sis and I jumped in the water and had so much fun. We felt like a couple of kids. The whole crew was safety orientated, but without being pushy about it. They had a slide and a high dive. Don't think this 38 year old kid didn't try the slide, because I did. Was a great time.
For and extra fee they had a sub contractor on board who would take only a few down by " snuba " so we went. Had a blast. We played with sea stars and sea urchins! Only thing missing was the turtles. It was a fun trip.
This was one of three snorkel excursions my husband and I took. I loved it because I got to snorkel about 2 hours-I was the last one back on the boat. I brought my own wet suit and while they had wet suits for rental most people didn't get one-a mistake because Hawaiian waters get chilly after awhile compared to say Belize. With a wet suit you're fine. Lots of corals-best of trip- and second best fish-big variety saw fish I didn't see elsewhere. You are on your own with ID but it's a game for me of Name That Fish. Didn't see turtles but I saw them other two snorkels. The kids on this boat had a blast with the slide and different floatation toys-very kid friendly. They have continental breakfast and lunch which is OK. And different beverages. They also offered the opportunity to learn SNUBA for an additional fee. I highly recommend this trip if you really want plenty of time to snorkel
What a great trip! The snorkeling was terrific. I would recommend this trip to everyone. Thanks to the crew on Body Glove who looked after us, and fed us, very well. (And for those who get seasick they have an amazing spray that works!)
I was hesitant to purchase this snorkeling tour because I was the only one in my family that has snorkeled before. My young daughter has only been swimming for about a year and my husband does not know how to swim, but they insisted that they wanted to try it! They absolutely loved it! My husband was slightly nervous at first, but the crew offered him a life vest or noodles. He went for the noodles and had a blast. He felt so comfortable that he made his way back to the boat to get a camera so he could take pictures. The boat was very clean and comfortable, and all of the staff very friendly! They provided a lunch of hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad and chips. After lunch we still had almost an hour to snorkel again. I highly recommend this tour.
This was our second snorkel excersion (we previously did one on Maui), the event was more focussed on the party aspect rather than being educational. Due to weather conditions we did not go far as the water was very rough. This is a short excersion half day- food was plentiful and fresh. Wet suites available for $10 fee (cash or credit card)
would suggest this excursion be for experienced snorkelers, good breakfast but lunch was served so closely to breakfast, water was too deep, charged $10 for body glove suit, had forgotten what salt water tasted like, scenic tour
On our cruise to the site we saw spinner dolphins and that was the best part of the trip. The snorkeling was okay but Molokini was better. We rented wetsuits for $10 each and the other gear, food, water, and reef safe sunscreen were all provided.
My sons enjoyed the slide and high dive and the lunch, but agreed that the snorkeling here was not nearly as good as at the Molokini Crater Snorkel on Maui. Both places had prescription goggles, but Molokini's were of better quality (mine leaked here). Definitely get the wetsuit. It was fun, but the reefs and fish were further below the surface than at Molokini, and were more of what we had already seen (and no sea turtles here). The Body Glove crew were young and fun, but the Molokini crew were fun, enthusiastic, passionate about being environmentally conscious, and explained about the environment and the fish you were seeing.
