When we went on the Waikiki Glass Bottom tour in Hawaii for our 25th anniversary, we were greeted very warmly and we felt very welcomed. Although it was raining, we still felt comfortable because of the crew and were offered free drinks. During the boat ride, we saw coral, tropical fish, and even sea turtles! We took lots of pictures of the stunning scenery of Waikiki and the Diamond Head. The crew also explained the history of Waikiki and made the tour more interesting so that every moment was enjoyable. Next time we come to Hawaii, we will definitely be going on the tour again. We highly recommend this great vacation tour for anyone travelling with friends, family, or as a couple.

matt H.

Loved it! We saw turtles, dolphins, tons of fish and the wide open sea!

Jeremiah

My boyfriend and I attended a morning cruise and it was an absolutely gorgeous day to set sail. Aside from the great weather and b...eautiful views, Captain Clifton (and his first mate) made the cruise even more enjoyable, with tons of informative facts and joke thrown into the mix. The boat was clean, the supply of drinks varied for adults and children and the day couldn't have been spent any better. Thanks for the ride! more

Jay

We had a great time on the boat with our two kids and baby. They lived seeing the fish and turtles through the glass. The captain ...and his mate were very friendly. We would do this again! more

The crew on this trip were excellent! We had the whole boat to ourselves. The captain of the boat went out of his way to show us e...verything we wanted to see. We saw turtles and also saw some dolphins In the distance. The Crew were very knowledgable and made the experience very worthwhile! The captain knew a lot about the history of the island and talked us through it, throughout the ride. I would recommend this and will recommend this. The boat ride was excellent! We really enjoyed the trip and this topped it off! When we saw the dolphins the driver tried to get as close as possible to them before they swam off. The glass bottom allowed is To see the Bottom of the ocean which was remarkable. The crew were very helpful and made the experience much better! They pointed out turtles and dolphins, they explained the usual patterns and they gave us advice on what to see around the island and the best spots to visit. more

We are a family of 4 with a infant. Snorkeling was not an option but we wanted to see marine life. The boat was great, captain too...k the boat out gently; no turbulence, baby was happy. We got to see dolphins, turtles and schools of fish more

Shiv

This glass bottom boat trip gives one a new view to look at while experiencing a cruise. Not only is the view amazing but you get ...to see a side of wild life you don't usually get to look at. We got to see a few different types of fish and a number of turtles. Our captain and his partner were also hugely helpful. Answering all questions and giving us interesting information on the sea and boat life here in Waikiki. But do understand, you can't control wild life, so some days or seasons might be better to go than others. And while what wild life you see may depend on a number of different things, the view is always enjoyable and relaxing. more

Victoria

Loved the view we had as the captain brought us closer to Diamondhead! Got to see honus and had tons of fun! Definitely recommend!... :) more

It was our first time experiencing the glass bottom boat tour. Although it wasn't what I was expecting from the title of the ...tour, but it was fun. The boat consisted of boxes with glass bottom you can look down to see underneath the boat. During the shallow parts of the water, you can see fishes and of course it's not a guarantee on what or what not you would see. But, wish we would have seen more! The captain and his partner were friendly and nice. We went during the first tour at 9am, so we basically had the entire boat to roam around with another family. They offer drinks (water, bud light, soda) and restroom on board, which was great! We were also lucky with the day that we went. It was sunny but during some parts of the tour, the clouds covered the sun, so the breeze was nice. So all in all, it was a fun experience. more

While the activity itself was good and the captain and crew were attentive....the travel arrangements were subpar and caused eight... of us to squeeze into vehicles not meant to transport that many people. The other tour participants ranged from families with small children to young adults who called it a "booze cruise" .... I would suggest that the tours be advertised as either "family friendly" or a "party tour", which is one that freely hands out alcohol to young folks who are interested in partying. Having tours designated as such would allow the people seeking the particular type of activity to choose which tour to sign up for, the company can have it both ways. Overall, we enjoyed the activity ... Just not all of our fellow passengers. more

Friendly Staff but not so much Animals to see :( I think on other Days it is better.
