“Meh?”

Glass Bottom Boat Discovery Tour
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Even though it was a hot day, the Atlantic Ocean was rather rough so the Captain decided to take us to the Gulf of Mexico. Not much to see. Visibility was clear but we didn't get to see the colorful coral and fish, pretty much algae, seaweed and rocks. It was a beautiful day though on the ocean. Water was spectacularly clear and beautiful. It was convenient that we could book this tour through our hotel concierge. We took the shuttle downtown and didn't have to worry about parking.

Enjoyable well-run boat trip to the coral reef but not much to see once you get there, even though we had very good visibility. Limited variety of coral and only a few different types of fish. Yellowtail snapper and zebra fish were the only colorful ones. The onboard naturalist was quite informative, though. If you're looking for a variety of fish and colorful coral, I would not recommend this trip.

We went on the 4:30pm sunset cruise & not only got to see the fish on the reef but had the delight of seeing the sun going down as we sailed back.

Our granddaughter can't get in the water due to a skin condition and we really wanted her to see the fish and coral around Key West.....so we decided to try this glass bottom boat tour....what a good decision it was! The boat was very nice and the crew was friendly and very knowledgeable. After clearing the inlet, we were encouraged to walk around and there were plenty of viewing opportunities outside. Once on the reef, Carrie gave a fantastic narrative about the beautiful things we were seeing. The positioning the the "glass bottom" was unique and offered space for a good number of people to view the fish and coral. We really enjoyed this 2 hour trip and felt that it was truly a wonderful alternative for a little girl who couldn't snorkel....she did the next best thing with the Glass Bottom Boat Discovery Tour!

View was poor with only the occasional fish which came to the glass being seen clearly. Looking at fish along the harbour quay earlier in the day was clearer than seen on the boat. The reef visited did not look in great health and I could not help but wonder if the same bit is being over visited.
If you want to see fish clearly go to the aquarium. Expensive for what you get in my opinion.
