There's not a boat out of PD that meets all those requirements. If you want a snorkel-only boat, your choice is Wavelength. If you want a glass-bottom boat, you have to go to the Low Isles, not the Outer Reef.

The closest thing to what you want is probably Quicksilver. This is a large boat that goes to a fixed platform and they offer both snorkeling and intro dives. They do not have a glass bottom boat, but they do have a semi-submersible so you can see underwater without getting wet. Check their website for details.
