Explore Kona's unique marine life by glass bottom boat! Kailua Bay's crystal clear waters offer great visibility through the boat viewing panels.

Description

Enjoy a comfortable and relaxing glassbottom cruise along Kona’s beautiful coastline! Designed to allow access to shallow waters, this vessel’s clear-paneled belly allows you to view more colors, creatures and captivating coral than in deeper water. Keep your eyes open en route, as it is common to spot a friendly pod of local Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, who delight themselves in putting on a great show. If you are not a swimmer, or just simply want to relax and stay dry, while still getting to experience all that is under the sea, then this is the tour for you!

This was an enjoyable hour! The staff was great! Spinner Dolphins, Eel, Manta Ray and lots and lots of beautiful fish in the ree...f! Worth every penny! more

I don't know how to swim, and no way would I try snorkeling without even knowing how to float, so this was right up my alley.... The staff was engaging and funny and knew a lot about the fish that we saw. We floated over several clusters of coral and although I didn't see anything as cool as a dolphin or manta ray, I did see a variety of exotic fish I had never known outside of an aquarium. Sadly, it's a quick 1 hour because you're so focused on looking at the windows that you lose track of time. I don't recommend taking tons of pictures like someone here suggested, only because the fish move so fast that you'd probably get bad shots anyway and secondly, you really want to enjoy this uninterrupted without a contraption mounted to your face. Maybe take a snapshot of the first reef so you can tell people "I experienced this," then put the camera away for good. more

It was a fun experience. We got to see lots of different fish. Taking pictures is hard though because fish and boat moving, and ...hard to see when developed because of glass. more

My girlfriend broke her ankle trying to go snorkeling so going again was out for us. The next best thing or better even was this t...our; Kat, our guide, answered every one of our questions and it was super fun! We saw all kinds of critters and fish and it felt like you were under the waves yourself! Clear and colorful! I’d do it again, and the price was the most reasonable of all the activities we’ve tried so far on the Big Island ;) more

Had a wonderful time. Boat was exceptional and specifically built for tour. Staff was extremely knowledgeable really great with th...e children as she used to be a school teacher. You couldn't have asked for a better guide for families with children! more

Mr. Anonymous

It was fun, and the snorkeling was great, but it does take a lot of upper arm strength.

Mr. Anonymous

This was a pleasant outing and particularly enjoyable for kids. If you think you might get seasick, I would recommend you take a g...inger capsule before you go. Looking down into the water can make you a little queezy. Very informative and was helpful to have someone describing what you see. more

It was good the people were very nice! If you don't like to snorkel then this will be great for you!
