The glass-bottom boat was one of the many highlights of our trip. Going as two adults, we didn't feel like it was just for kids. There were families with small children on the boat, and everyone enjoyed it. You get to see the coral reef off the coast with many types of fish, several turtles, and many sea cucumbers and anemones. You're in the shade, looking down the center of the boat with large glass windows. The captain was fun, knowledgeable, and would steer the ship as we saw turtles or other wildlife that people were interested in. For the price and the short time commitment of 30 mins, it is worth it.

This was a great activity. We went with a three year old snd it was fine. Boat holds about 15 people and every seat has a good view through the glass floor while seated. No need to stand. Boat trip was about 45 minutes with good views of the reef the entire time. Easy on and off right from the beach. The staff were very good about pointing out the sea life and explaining the science. Well worth it. Also less expensive than other trips. Added bonus, when finished you are on a great beach!

Fantastic tour packed with fish and sea turtles! Our Captain and guide were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic when we peppered them with questions. The glass bottom is so large and clean for everyone to have an unobstructed view. We could see everything. Also, loved the shade on the boat. Highly recommend!

It was a fun experience. Great and knowlegeable hosts, clear water, wonderful sea life. I highly recommend it. The whole family, with teens and an 8 year old, enjoyed it. Thanks for the coconut island rec, Scott, we loved it as well.

They were awesome, we had bad weather and they called us early to try and take us out earlier, unfortunately we could not make that time. The team still showed up at our scheduled time and took us out and we had an amazing time. Very friendly, Aloha spirit, top-class - highly recommend!

We did this tour with our 1 and 4 year olds. It was perfect! Our guide gave great information, and it was so much fun. We all loved being able to see the reef without having to get wet! Highly recommend, especially with children.

Captain Miranda was super friendly and awesome. Very comfortable ride with large enough glass windows for excellent viewing. Just as good as snorkeling for young children who aren't great swimmers yet.

Loved the pickup from the beach. It was very convenient from the Bay club to walk to the pickup point. Ride was pleasant and the naturalist and captain knew enough to answer our questions. In the future I hope to have time for a longer snorkeling adventure.

This is an excellent activity for anyone interested in a fun time on the water with friendly people looking at all types of marine life. We saw: lots of colored fish, several sea turtles and a stingray! It was a beautiful morning and the Captain and Ty made an educational experience about marine life in the bay very exciting and interesting.
