We went on the Rock Island Glass Boat Tour as our vacation excursion and enjoyed the tour very much! We completely recommend this tour! Fantastic and very knowledgeable tour guys and captain. The Rock Island Lighthouse tour inside of the lighthouse was absolutely wonderful from the history of it to the incredible views. We will definitely go on this tour again in the fall time next to see the foliage!

What a great time we had! The captain and Liam were great. Very informative. Couldn’t hear on the way there when using the head set but way back he switched to a microphone and we learned a lot about the area. It was a beautiful day, which helped as well. Great crew and would do again. Maybe glass bottom your next time!

This is a 3 1/2 hour tour. Two hours on the boat and 1hr 20 minutes at Boldt Castle. A shorter or maybe slightly faster boat ride to have more time to explore Boldt Castle would be desirable. Tour guide and Captain were knowledgeable and friendly. If you really want to see all there is to see at the Castle I would recommend a direct shuttle from mainland to the Castle. If you are more interested in “Millionare’s Row” along the water it’s a very good tour.
