We had a fantastic day out on the sunset glass bottom boat tour. We took my mother out for afternoon and she had an absolute ball. Whales, dolphins, turtles, fish and sunsets. Couldn't ask for more! Tour guide was a legend and super accommodating. Would recommend!

Paid $35 each for a 1.5 hour tour. Company is advertised as a glass bottom boat for turtle and whale watching,which was what excited us. The boat had only 4 little shafts to look down into. A little misleading to me. Otherwise we got what we paid for, a few schools of fish and a turtle in the distance. Could have done without all the corny jokes by the crew.

Just took this fun ride around Diamond Head with my daughter and it was fabulous!!! The tour guide was friendly, hilarious 🤣 and his presentation very informative with lots of tips and personal insights. Got to see several sea turtles and fish. Plus, the price is very reasonable. Would highly recommend taking this tour on a Friday night during the evening fireworks show off of Waikiki. Thank you, crew, for a memorable day. Mahalo 🌺
