Overview
Take in views of the marine world—without getting wet—on a glass-bottom boat cruise through Oahu's clear blue waters. While snorkeling trips require changing into swimwear and adjusting to a snorkel, this tour lets you see the same tropical fish, shipwrecks, and coral reefs, all without going below the surface. Plus, you can also keep an eye out above the surface where you are likely to spot dolphins and whales.

We saw whales and turtles and the captain was very knowledgeable and interesting and we enjoyed the boat ride but we saw very little fish through the glass bottom. We were disappointed because we can see whales at home and we came to specifically see tropical fish and the coral

Was a fantastic trip. Easy to find! Got to see a great deal out in the water (though the wildlife didn't play ball). It was still a beautiful trip, with lots of good information about the island and the area we were in. Well worth the time! The crew was super helpful and

Joan & I loved the boat ride! We saw a baby whale several times & a very large sea turtle came very close to the boat to say hello to us. The Captain & crew were very nice to everyone aboard. We would go back again the next time we get to visit Hawaii. HONESTLY! ABE
