“Great little trip for around the bay”

Little Mermaid Glass Bottom Boat Tours
Reviewed July 5, 2012

This was the third time or so I have went on this tour. This was the best time of the three. They have expanded their tour so now you actually go to cannery row side and to the kelp forest to be up close to the otters and the harbor seals. We were able to see jelly fish under the glass throughout the tour. It was really cool. My niece who was visiting and had never been to the beach really liked it.

Princess Monterey Whale Watching apparently run the little glass bottom boat "Little Mermaid" on Fisherman´s Warf as well. The visibility through the water below was zero for most of the 25 min trip, except for a few minutes when we stopped over a "kelp forest" - and saw some....kelp....and one single tiny little fish. What´s the point of a glass bottom boat under these circumstances?! Have been on many fantastic glass bottom boats elsewhere, but this one was SO disappointing.
Having said that, if all you want is a short boat trip near Fisherman´s Warf and some short information from the captain about the local sealife and a few words about the nearby attraction it´s ok. You see the sea lions etc a bit closer than you do from the shore. But it was awkward watching a crew member making noises to wake the poor sleeping sea lions up - so much for the respect of the wildlife!
(A sign nearby says not to haress the sealions - maybe that just goes for us tourists....).
But the glass bottom just seems like a way of making people pay more for a boat trip, under false pretense.
