Owner description: Peak into Kona’s underwater paradise without getting wet. Cruise along on Marian, a 36-foot glass bottom boat specially designed to cruise within inches of the reef. Have your cameras ready for some close and personal visits with colorful fish, corals, and other sea creatures. Marian is designed for uncrowded, shaded comfort and clear viewing. As you cruise along, you’ll enjoy breathtaking vistas of the island’s rugged shoreline. Step forward to the bow and you might see frolicking dolphins or whales. Throughout your adventure, the onboard naturalist will share tales and legends that evoke the magic

This was the perfect 1 hour ocean excursion for our family, which included 3 generations. We all loved it. We saw lots of colorful tropical fish, and coral formations, along with a calm scenic ocean cruise in front of the picturesque Kailua-Kona Town and Hualalai Mountain. The onboard naturalist was so friendly, and provided interesting information about the underwater marine life, as well as other island trivia. Affordable, fun, and interesting for all ages.

I was with my 2 year old and he loved seeing the fish thru the glassbottom. It was safe and the boat was covered so he didn't get sun burnt. 1 hour was perfect timing for a toddler with a short attention span.

This glass bottom boat tour leaves from the Kailua pier in the center of town and travels around the bay. Viewing through the bottom of the boat is good, photos are impossible as the lass is a few feet away from you. Crew pointed out fish and coral but there is not a whole lot in the bay. Good for kids or newbies but if you've snorkeled once in Kona, you've seen more.
