Body Glove - Captain Cook Historical Dinner Cruise

Departing from Kailua pier in downtown Kailua-Kona, enjoy a relaxing dinner cruise down the coastline to beautiful Kealakekua Bay, a marine sanctuary. The bay is home to the Captain Cook Monument, which was built to honor Captain James Cook, a British explorer and navigator who was the first European to begin formal contact with the Hawaiian Islands in 1778.

Along the 12-mile cruise down the Kona Coast, you’ll enjoy spectacular shoreline views while an on board historian will point out over 50 points of interest and historical sites. While you are en route to Kealakekua Bay, enjoy an island-inspired dinner. Listen to live entertainment and watch the beautiful sunset on the way back.
