I was a little leary of a 2-hour glass bottom boat cruise, as I've been on a few of these type excursions and found them lame. This one, however, did not disappoint! Very friendly crew with knowledgeable guide to the marine life. Power catamaran was clean and not overcrowded, and COVID-19 protocols were observed and enforced. At $49 per person, it wasn't cheap but was a good value. Only complaint was the check-in and boarding process which wasn't very well explained or organized. Spectacular views of the sunset near the Key West harbor, timed just right by the Captain, and a complimentary glass of champagne were a bonus!

My family looked forward to the Glass-Bottom boat as our final excursion of an amazing trip to Key West, FL. We were a little disappointed because we were unable to go to the reef due to weather, but understood. The viewing area wasn't what we expected--it was a pretty small area. We only saw 3 fish and a little sea life. Dolphins did follow our boat and that was fun. Everybody just kindof sat down and started messing with their phones because it wasn't so amazing. THEN, we got to see a

Went out today. We were notified by text that weather prevented our going to the coral reef/Atlantic, and that we would tour the Gulf. We were advised of same again at check in and again upon boarding. We’re we’re offered a refund each time. They clearly stated they did not want us to be disappointed. My only disappointment was inside the cabin. Masks were required, and that was made very clear. Again, refunds were offered until the moment of departure to anyone choosing not to comply with the mask requirements. However, I realized that people took there masks off their noses and sometimes mouths. I felt that this made the enclosed cabin unsafe. We missed most of the narration as we stayed outside and up top where hearing was difficult. The boat was clean, the water beautiful. I would not do this trip again because of the masking non-compliance in the inside, enclosed space.

So we were the first ride out on Easter Sunday!
Staff was friendly enough and in the long term the young lady who conducted the tour was very knowledgeable…..
A/C in viewing was almost non existent…also oddly configured with seats not facing the viewing glass!
The water was clear, and we saw fish, the actual reef is not what you picture when you hear the word reef……
But the biggest thing was that we were tossed around like corks! Windy day = rough seas
As a matter of fact, after dragging ourselves off of the boat, the bartender at a local restaurant on Duval St said that the boat was cancelled on days that had a lot less wind…but then she followed up by commenting that she figures that money was the driving force in that decision ….
Anyway, wished that we had done something else!!!

Hi BobbyMac710, We appreciate you taking the time to review your experience on the Glass Bottom Boat. This popular trip is the only way to experience the Reef, and all the amazing creatures who call it home, without getting wet! While we love our local bartenders, they typically do not have an accurate gauge on sea conditions. Our Captains work very hard to find the smoothest routes with the clearest waters in order to give our guests the best possible experience. When winds reach a certain point that we find out guests would be uncomfortable, we cancel the trip. We never wish to cancel a trip as we realize guests plan their vacation around these activities, however, as guests all have a different gauge of what is rough on the water and what is not, we proceeded with the trip as sea conditions, although not perfectly ideal, were at a fair place for this time of the year. We received no other complaints from guests on any Glass Bottom Boat trip on Sunday. We do regret you felt the rocking boat marred the entire experience for you and hope to have the opportunity to have you back onboard under calmer sea conditions.

The actual Glass Bottom Boat excursion was fun and interesting. The weather that day prevented us from going to the reef, and rather we had to travel to the gulf, but they gave plenty of notice for this change and offered a chance to get a refund if wanted. We went ahead and went since it was our last day. We still saw some pretty cool things. I went with my friend and our 4 kids. It seemed like a great idea for something to do with the kids, but the hosts had no patience with them. We were one of four families, three of which had multiple children with them. One of the three hosts was super sweet and patient. Another told my friend’s daughter that she was drinking too much water and wouldn’t let her get anymore. I’m sorry, but if she’s actually drinking the water provided for paying guests I don’t see what’s the problem. The main host that was giving the demonstration, stopped in the middle of her speech and actually grabbed my 6 year old son by the arm and pulled him away from the water jug while he was trying to fill his cup. She then proceeded to mention to the host that had an issue with my friend’s daughter that they “need to keep an eye on that one” while pointing at my son. At the end of her demonstration, she told everyone that she was “sorry it was so busy today with all the kids.” Again, 3 of the 4 families on board had kids. That was not appropriate at all. We enjoyed the excursion and the captain, but some of the hosts need to learn some tolerance.

Poor visibility meant we stayed in the harbor. They did offer a full refund if you wanted it, but they also really played up the “dolphin playground” that we’d still travel through, so in the end we did decide to still go. Yeah, no dolphins either. Narration about the keys was informative, and the sunset was beautiful, but in reality, it was just a super expensive boat ride around the harbor.

If you are at all concerned about Covid, I would stay away from this particular tour. This was not at all what you would expect a glass bottom boat to be. This was more like a large two story ferry boat. The only glass bottom to the boat were two narrow 8 foot cutouts that were completely indoors so everyone had to gather around these two small areas right on top of each other. There was zero social distancing and they refused to crack open the windows or the doors to allow air circulation. There was an upper deck to the boat but then obviously you could not see out the glass bottom which is the entire point of a glass bottom boat tour. Also, the upper deck was taped/marked off for social distancing so my group of 5 had no place to sit and thus were relegated to the stuffy crowded indoor space (which was NOT taped off for social distancing which is bizarre). After moving around several times and trying to find a place to sit upstairs and then trying to find a socially distanced place indoors, we had no luck and my entire party decided to get off the boat before it departed as we did not feel safe (covid-wise) being on board for 2 hours. Also, as a side note, we had reserved for 5 people and they only had us down for 3 people when we arrived and we were told they were booked to capacity and couldn't add the rest of our party. All that being said, the woman at the desk was super helpful and did add the rest of our party and also helped us with a refund when we decided to get off of the boat.

We actually took this trip in July 2017 but the dates dont go that far back. It was predicted to rain that night and water was rather choppy. Our captain and crew stated the boat would not go to the reef due to weather conditions and anyone could get a refund. We decided to stay as it was implied we would still see some great underwater scenery. Our mistake. There was nothing spectacular about the underwater views, it was dull in color and underwhelming especially considering the price. The viewing area was small considering the number of people on board. I dont know if the reef views are better than what we saw but I would save my money, walk down to the Eco Discovery Center near Ft Zachary Taylor which is free (donations are accepted and appreciated) and check out the living reef exhibit, which is what we hoped to see.

Hi dhhsrn, It is difficult to explain what may have happened on a trip you took two and a half years ago however, it seems you were well notified that the weather was not cooperating, offered a refund but made the choice to proceed with the trip regardless. When weather is less than ideal, our Captains do their best to select locations that are calm enough for guests comfort while still offering views of marine life and vibrant coral. While both locations you named above are wonderful attractions in our small town, nothing quite compares to a smooth sail on the crystal clear waters of the Keys!

Total waste of time and money! Very disappointing. We did not get to see anything other than a few small fish. The narrator was unclear, and we could not understand most of what she was saying. The trip lasted 1.5 hours, not the stated 2 hours.

Overpriced trip. We enjoyed it but it is not worth what we paid. The person who tried to sell us the tickets was trying to force us to purchase even more expensive tickets but we had online coupons so we knew better. Probably will not return unless they lower the prices.
