18 dollars wasted per person, glass bottom boat where you can see nothing through the glass. Poor PA system where you could not hear what the Captain was saying. Save your money !!

We were out paddle boarding at the old coast guard pier today when one of these boats came by and nearly ran us over. Literally all three of us had to paddle out of the way as the boat driver steered straight for us. Upsetting...More

Don't expect to see much more than kelp, sea lions and otters but if you know that going in, this is a relatively cheap way to get to putz around in the bay for a few minutes. Staff was pleasant, a little rehearsed, but that's...More
