Simi false advertising

This trip is simi false advertising. We were expecting to be on a boat with a glass bottom but instead the boat has 4 cases that look like deep freezers that you have to stand up and look over into. So you get the idea when I say simi false advertisement. So not worth it.

Fun Ride but Few Turtles

We were four sisters enjoying a first visit to Hawaii. We enjoyed the captain and our guide and the beauty of the ocean. We only saw two turtles (nothing in the glass bottom viewing area) and schools of fish. But the trip and view alone is worth the ride.

Kie & Nalou (sp?) were great! We only saw 1 female turtle in the canal as we were heading out, she was still there on the way back in☺️. We also were able to see the submarine come up out of the water. The boat wasn’t packed, we were able to social distance. We saw a ship wreck from the glass bottom stations. We saw schools of fish. They took our photo in front of diamond head (for free). Great atmosphere & interaction. Pleasant experience! Had a wonderful time! …and it was reasonably priced! 39$PP was great deal.

Definitely the most affordable sight seeing boat tour in the area. Well worth the money as we had a great experience. We had great weather, saw a variety of reef fish, spinner dolphins and quite a few sea turtles.

We really enjoyed the boat ride with the wonderful Aloha spirit provided by the captain and Tristan, who has a really nice voice! It was definitely worth the time and money! We also got to see so many beautiful and playful dolphins :-)

Very friendly guides/staff. They also gave great information about the culture and history of Hawaii. The glass bottoms are great for kids who aren’t ready for snorkeling. Mahalo🤙
